Caramel Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Brownies are one of my favorite foods on the planet. Cream cheese brownies take them up a notch. CARAMEL Brownies with cream cheese frosting take them up a BIG notch. You just cannot go wrong with a brownie, whether it’s a thick, fudgy brownie or a thin, cake-like brownie. 

The recipe for the brownies alone is so rich, so good. They taste just as good without the frosting! But I mean, the caramel cream cheese frosting is really the whole point, so might as well add that in.
