Last night I spent my night virtually watching the Oscars with Gina via Facebook. Back and forth we shared witty comments about dresses, baby bumps, speeches and super hot men with eyes as blue as the ocean. Obviously it was a highly productive night.

Lets talk about the Oscar dresses for a second. I saw a women with a bow the size of Canada attached to the ass of her dress. Why people, why? If you’re lucky enough to attend the Oscars I would hope that you could buy a dress that wouldn’t make you look like your child just stuck their church craft on the backside of your dress. Then again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe bows are in? Maybe I’m just too boring with my own wardrobe? I’m the classic yoga/legging pants with cotton t-shirt kind of girl. If I’m feeling fancy I will throw on a scarf and call it an outfit. Being comfortable rules.

Luckily for you I didn’t spend the whole night watching TV. In between snarky Oscar comments I found a little time to write up this post.

I made these brownies a few weeks ago and have been dreaming about them ever since. They are stuffed with tons of melted chocolate, Guinness beer and the most amazing chocolate covered sea salted caramel filled morsels. Those morsels are so crazy delicious I don’t even know where to begin. Sweet and salty caramel stuffed inside a mini chocolate shell…what’s not to love?

These brownies are super fudgy and have a very intense chocolate flavor. That is why I made a quick Jameson whipped cream to slather on top. Guinness, chocolate and Jameson. These brownies seriously have it all! I also drizzled these brownies with a homemade Jameson caramel. I shouldn’t admit this but I ate that caramel with a spoon. I’m such a hot mess.

I should tell you that I’m going to be slightly mean and not give you the Irish whiskey caramel sauce recipe until Friday. I figured three different recipes in one post might be a bit too much to handle. Plus, that caramel deserves a post all to itself. Caramel and Irish whiskey…ummmmm yes please!

    These look amazing – I’m always on the lookout for a new brownie recipe. Will have to make these for a March Madness or St. Paddy’s Day treat. What did you use for your chocolate covered caramel morsels, not sure I’ve seen these anywhere other than in a bark form?

    Where do you find chocolate covered sea salted caramel filled morsels? Did you buy them or make them? Sounds like I could eat those with a spoon and join you as a hot mess!

    I tried the link that you provided for the chocolate covered sea salted caramel minis and the link doesn’t work, what is the name of the caramels you used?

    • nutmegnanny replied: — December 6th, 2015 @ 11:18 pm

      Hi J Cook! So sorry about that! I’ll change the link but in the meantime these would make a great substitution

    These sound great! Don’t think we can get the sea salt morsels in the UK, but might try with some other chocolate coated caramels and see how they turn out!
