cup butter or margarine
2
oz bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped
1
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1
egg, slightly beaten
1
tablespoon milk

cup hot caramel topping (from 12-oz jar)
6

1/3

1

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In small microwavable bowl, microwave butter and bittersweet chocolate uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Microwave 30 seconds longer or until butter and chocolate are melted and can be stirred smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

  • 3 In ungreased 8-inch square pan, press half of dough. Bake 8 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, cook caramel topping and caramels over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted.
  • 5 Remove pan from oven. Carefully pour caramel mixture over partially baked base to within 1/2 inch of sides of pan. Sprinkle with cashews. Crumble remaining dough into small pieces and sprinkle over filling (some of filling will show). Bake 12 to 15 minutes longer or just until edges are set (do not overbake).
  • 6 In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate candy bar pieces uncovered on High 30 seconds or until melted. Drizzle chocolate diagonally over baked bars. Cool completely, at least 1 hour. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Try making these bars with hot fudge topping instead of the hot caramel topping next time.

As with many brownie recipes, doneness is difficult to describe. The topping will feel soft when gently tapped, but the edges will be set and the top will look dry.
