Ghirardelli Chocolate Caramel Brownies
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cup Ghirardelli sweet ground chocolate and cocoa
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
16 Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Caramel Squares
1/2 cup Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips (optional - to make them extra gooey)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square metal pan with non-stick foil or parchment.
Whisk together eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add melted butter.
Sift ground chocolate with flour, baking powder and salt and stir into egg mixture. Spread half the batter into prepared pan. Place chocolate covered caramel in single layer on top of batter. Cover with remaining batter. Spread with spoon to cover completely. Bake 20-30 minutes. Let cool. Cut into 9 squares.
If you'd like the chips on top, sprinkle them on just as it comes out of the oven and they'll melt to where you can lightly swirl the chocolate with a knife as the brownies cool.
