1 cup flour

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour and blend until well mixed. Spread half of the batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan or disposable foil pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. While first layer is baking, melt caramels and cream in microwave on high for 3 minutes. Blend with a spoon and add 1 cup of pecans. Once brownies are removed from oven, immediately spread caramel mixture on top of brownie layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips over caramel layer. Pour rest of batter on top of chocolate chip layer. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Return brownies to oven and bake 30 more minutes. Cool brownies completely in pan. Cover with a layer of plastic wrap, then foil, and freeze.
