Brownies with Marsh mellows and Caramel

1/2 cup butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I use semi-sweet)
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Mini marsh mellows
Caramel (See Below)

Grease an 8x8x2 inch baking pan, set aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs, sugar and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon, beat lightly just till combined. Stir in flour and nuts.
Spread half the batter in prepared baking pan. Sprinkle mini marshmallows and then pour caramel over them, then spread the rest of the batter over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book (The standard one that is checkered). Minus the marsh mellows and caramel, those I added, because I can :).

1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
1/2 c butter
1/2 c sweetened condensed milk

Ingredients need to be at room temperature. (I microwave the butter to soften it because I never have any at room temperature). Combine all ingredients in a microwaveable bowl and cook on high for 2 minutes, stir, cook on high 2 minutes, stir, cook on high 2 more minutes, stir and pour into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan. Let cool.
For the brownies above I used a measure cup and poured enough caramel to cover the marshmallow's, about 1/2 cup, while it was still hot and runny. Then poured the rest in a pan to set. Once set I put the extra in a Ziploc bag and put it in the freezer for the next time I need some.

They turned out really well!
