TWD- Caramel-Peanut Topped Brownie Cake

This week’s recipe was chosen by Wee Treats by Tammy. The recipe is for a brownie cake base, topped with salted peanuts mixed with gooey caramel. Flipping through the book a few weeks ago, I saw the picture of this and the description that it’s reminiscent of a Snickers bar, and I told my husband we should try it. Then lo and behold, it’s this week’s recipe!
I made mine in a 9″ springform since I don’t have an 8″. I should’ve adjusted the baking time accordingly, because I baked mine for 30 minutes (the receipe says 40-45) and it was a little dry- did anyone else have that problem? These are not baked beans- it’s the caramel/peanut topping. The recipe says to cook until the caramel is a rich, dark brown, which seems a little ambiguous to me. It says to cook 10 minutes, but mine took longer than that. Then, I stepped away for a minute, came back, and it was D-A-R-K! Darn the 2 year old and 1 year old rascals!
I think it turned out ok, though. Since the caramel was a little overcooked, we served it warmed with vanilla ice cream. Only one slice for my husband and me and the rest was given away!
