    6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly.
    7. Sprinkle the remaining chopped caramel candies over the top of the batter.
    8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not completely clean).
    9. Let the brownies cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving.
