double the peanut butter goodness

caramel makes me happy

I LOVE caramel anything really.  I love it in my coffee, I love it on ice cream, I love it swirled into cakes and I especially love it with brownies.  Over time I have made a couple of caramel brownie recipes (like this one)  but this new recipe is The Hubby’s …
