Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For bottom layer, stir together first 4 crust ingredients. Stir in the 1/2 cup melted butter. Pat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 11x7x1-1/2-inch baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

  • In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate, butter, and the water; cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • Add granulated sugar and brown sugar to chocolate mixture; beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until combined. Add eggs and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add flour, salt, and cinnamon. Beat on low speed until combined. Spread batter in prepared pan.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

  • For the drizzle, melt chocolate and caramel candies separately; place each in a Ziploc bag. Snip off a corner and drizzle the caramel first followed by the chocolate and a sprinkling of fleur de sel.
