Prep time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 25 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups Flour, all-purpose
- 3/4 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 1/3 cups Sugar
- 3/4 cup Butter or margarine, melted
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 package (14oz) Caramels, unwrapped
- 2 tablespoons Milk
- 1/2 cup Hazelnuts, toasted, skin removed, chopped
- 1 cup Semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup Hazelnuts, toasted, skin removed, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl; set aside.
Blend sugar and melted butter or margarine in medium bowl. Add eggs and vanilla; stir until blended. Add cocoa mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Spread half brownie batter (1 1/2 cups) into greased, foil-lined 8-inch baking pan.
Microwave caramels and milk on high in microwave-safe bowl for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until caramel is melted and smooth. Immediately stir in 1/2 cup hazelnuts. Spoon caramel mixture evenly over top of batter. Spread remaining batter over caramel.
Bake for 25 to 28 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let chips soften 5 minutes. Spread melted chips over top of brownie. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts. Cool before cutting.
