We had such a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday! Almost all of my hubby's family came over for a special Mother's Day dinner. They are always so much fun to be with!
Since I'm doing everything as simple as possible these days, I wanted to try something new for one of the desserts. Something easy. It also had to be super chocolate-y to be approved by my oldest brother-in-law.
So I went with a Caramel Brownie Torte.
Hello my friend. You were absolutely delicious.
Another brother-in-law asked what exactly this creation was called. I told him it was called a Caramel Brownie Torte. He replied, "You should just call it Heaven."
He's right, folks. It's pretty much Heaven.
Here's what you'll need:
2 boxes of brownie mix
1 (13 oz.) jar of Nutella
1 (16 oz.) jar of Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel sauce (ice cream topping)
Prepared brownie mixes as directed on the box. Pour into 2 9-inch round cake pans (so that's one box of prepared brownie mix into one pan and the other box of prepared brownie mix into the other pan - oh yeah).
Bake until brownies are completely baked. (I over baked mine and had to cut off the well-done edges; no big deal.) Allow to cool.
When ready to assemble, place one brownie round on to a cake stand or platter. Spread all of the Nutella onto the top of the brownie. Sprinkle with however many chopped pecans you'd like. Top that with half the jar of caramel sauce.
Place the other brownie round on top and pour the remaining caramel sauce over the brownie and sprinkle with more chopped pecans.
Heaven is ready and waiting.
Please try to refrain from licking the screen.
