I’ve been making these Knock You Naked Bars for the past ten years, and each time I do so, I have a little nibble before putting them in the fridge to set for serving to guests and family. And after that little nibble, I end up consuming almost half of the pan, so very, very small bites of brownies are presented at my dinner party. I apologize; I am who I am. When it comes to caramel and chocolate, I have very little self control.
