Fudge Ripple Pecan Brownies

Sick or not, you're going to really enjoy them. The chewy caramel layer on top really takes these brownies to the next level.

These Fudge Ripple Pecan Brownies are a snap to make. With a fudgy brownie base, that’s filled with extra chocolate and toasted pecans and then topped with a silky caramel, more pecans and a drizzle of chocolate, these brownies are impossible to resist.

OMG! My husband asked me to make these Fudge Ripple Pecan Brownies two times before he even finished his first one! So good and so easy!

You know what is the worst?

Being a mom and getting sick.

I don’t think it should be allowed. Is there a way we can outlaw it? Or instill some sort of law that when a mom does happen to get sick, their kids are taken to a professional nanny caring place for the duration of said sickness?

Last week I went up north with my friend Amanda for a ski getaway while my husband watched the kids at home.

It was so much fun until I got the black plague.

Ok, maybe not the black plague, but a really bad chest cold. I had to hang up my skis early and lay in bed all day. I almost attempted getting an early return flight until I realized I would have to come home and help take care of 4 kids. Then I decided to be brave and tough it out in the condo rental.

I don’t get sick often, so when it does happen I think it hits me full force.

I’m going on a week now of this coughing, headache, ear ache and it’s just no fun.

I came home and my kids have been really sweet, but there are still things they demand out of me. Like dinner. And dessert.

Always a dessert.

Luckily I have tricks up my sleeve like these modified box brownies.

I took a fudge brownie mix and gave it a little extra love with some toasted pecans, caramel and extra chocolate.

So even though I’m still heavily medicated on NyQuil, Tylenol, Airborne, Robitussin, Advil and cough drops, my kids still love me because I can give them extra fancy desserts like these brownies.

It’s the little things.

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 20 vanilla caramels, unwrapped
