And the calorie and sugar content? Don’t even ask.
The treats weren’t always so addictive. When Chapin first started making brownies for her son’s West Point cadet tailgating parties, she used a packaged brownie mix and individually wrapped Kraft caramels. The brownies disappeared anyway thanks to a troop of hungry boys, but they weren’t nearly as delicious as they are today.
“I’m a caramel addict,” Chapin says. “It’s all about the caramel.”
She spent two years perfecting the sea salt caramel for her exclusive (available by online order only) bites of bliss. First, she bakes a brownie base and tops it with Ghirardelli chocolate while still warm. The golden caramel sauce is swirled on top of the melted chocolate. Finally, a layer of brownie crumbles – think chocolate streusel – goes on top. The brownies freeze beautifully, so there’s always a stash at the ready to feed your own caramel addiction. Or give Chapin 48 hours notice to whip up a batch – every component is made from scratch. $40/dozen, and free delivery in the Metro Phoenix area.
