On a more serious note, I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then after nine years moved to Richmond,VA and lived there for thirty years. Lived in Fayetteville,NC for two and a half years. I lived in Savannah,GA for two years. I'm back in Richmond right now. I'm a recently divorced Christian BBW foodie concerned about human rights, ex-offender re-entry, recovery from all addiction, behavioral health,natural beauty,healthy living,etc. Right now I'm a caregiver,for the elderly,children and those with special needs and I am also trying to become a professional restaurant reviewer and blogger as well as looking for partners,investors & other resources to open a diner in the Bay Area of California or in Savannah Georgia

Chocolate Caramel Brownies recipe courtesy of Sandra Lee of Semi-Homemade on Food Network


Coconut is the secret ingredient that make these brownies so wonderful

Ingredients

Cooking spray
1 (19.50-ounce) box chocolate brownie mix
2 eggs
¼ cup chocolate milk
¼ cup canola oil
1 cup chocolate chips, divided
½ cup heavy cream
30 caramels (recommended: Kraft)
2 cups shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat the brownie mix with the eggs, chocolate milk, and oil until just combined. Using a spatula, fold in ½ cup chocolate chips. Spread into the prepared baking dish and bake until center is barely set, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Stir in the caramels until completely melted and incorporated into the cream. Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut. Spread in an even layer over the cooled brownies.

Melt the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring between intervals. Drizzle the chocolate in a criss-cross pattern over the coconut topping. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to set before slicing into bars.
