Caramel Nut Brownies

A shortcut to this recipe would be to use a boxed brownie mix, add nuts, chocolate chips and swirl in some caramel.  Here is a homemade version though that is pretty easy to make and also very delicious.  Enjoy!

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 jar of ice cream caramel topping
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla.  Beat in eggs one by one until the ingredients are completely combined.  In a separate bowl combined the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.  Add a little bit at a time and stir after each addition until all has been completely combined.  Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips.

Spread batter into the bottom of a 9 x 9 greased baking dish.  Now take teaspoon fulls of caramel and dollop them on top of the brownie.  Taking a knife swirl the caramel in to get a marbelized effect of caramel throughout the brownie.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Allow brownies to cool and enjoy!
