Brownies get an ooey-gooey twist with a layer of chewy caramel in the middle. Walnuts add a little crunch, too, so you get the best of both worlds.

Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add sugar and eggs; mix well. Stir in flour. Spread half the batter onto bottom of prepared pan.
Bake 25 min. or until top is firm to the touch. Meanwhile, microwave caramels and cream in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until caramels begin to melt; stir until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in 1 cup nuts.
Spread caramel mixture over brownie layer in pan; cover with remaining brownie batter. (Brownie batter does not need to completely cover caramel layer.) Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Bake 30 min. or until top is firm to the touch. Cool completely. Use foil handles to remove brownies from pan before cutting to serve.
A serving of this sweet treat is 1 brownie. A small portion goes a long way on chocolate flavor.
Since a glass baking dish conducts and retains heat better than a metal pan does, always reduce the oven temperature by 25ºF when baking in a glass baking dish.
Toasting nuts gives them more flavor. To toast the nuts, spread them into single layer on baking sheet. Bake in 350°F oven 12 to 15 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Cool completely before using as directed.
