Sometimes I want dessert but really don’t feel like spending six hours in the kitchen creating a culinary Mona Lisa. That’s when a boxed brownie mix, a jar of caramel sauce, and a bag of candied pecans come in handy.

  • Bake brownies.
  • Heat caramel sauce.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Spoon sauce over brownie.
  • Eat.

And it tasted even better than it looks.
