Day 282: Caramel Cashew Brownies

We're headed out to cut firewood, so just a quick post today!  I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. 

Caramel Cashew Brownies
10" dutch oven

18 caramels
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 Tbs. milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped salted cashews

In a 10" dutch oven over about 6 coals, cook and stir the caramels, butter and milk until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.  Combine the eggs and vanilla and stir into the caramel mixture.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into caramel mixture until blended.  Fold in the cashews.  Pour into a well greased dutch oven.  Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Use 1 ring on top and 1 ring on the bottom.  Cool completely before cutting.  Serves 9.

The Finished Product

The Review

Oooh!  These were good!  I absolutely love cashews, so I take any chance to bake with them.  These can hardly be called brownies because they are so chewy and gooey.  These only lasted about 10 minutes.  I purposely over cook mine because my hubby loves the crunchy edges, so if they're cooked for the proper time they will be even more gooey.  These are delicious!  One warning though--be sure to use Crisco to grease the pan, and don't be shy about it.  These are pretty sticky.  Grade A.
