“These brownies are absolutely delicious. I was at a Pampered Chef party and this was the yummy dessert that was served. Everyone loved it. The caramels in it are Rolos accented by salted mixed nuts and vanilla ice cream on top of the warm brownie. Sooooo good! Looks like a lot of steps but not hard to do. In fact, they are quite easy.”
