Salted Carmel Brownies

I was looking for an excuse to make these ever since I saw the Barefoot Contessa make them on TV! Thank goodness for Book Club.

Melt together in the microwave in a large glass bowl.
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Mix well by hand until smooth.
Stir in until just combined:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Bake in foil lined and sprayed 9 x 13 inch pan at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Don't overbake!

Meanwhile make carmel sauce:
Dissolve 1/2 cup brown sugar in 2 T. water in sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to boil and let cook until color gets deeper brown about 10 minutes. Stir in 2 T. heavy cream and 2 T. butter.

Drizzle over baked brownies and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
