Place a rack in the centre of your oven and preheat oven to 350ºF.
Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 13x9-inch baking pan, line it with parchment paper letting it hang over the two longer sides (this will make it easier to lift the brownies out of the pan, and cut them).
In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt unsalted butter and chocolate chips. Let cool slightly.
To a medium bowl, add the melted butter mixture, brown and granulated sugars, eggs and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.
Add the flour, cocoa, salt and caramel chips. Mix with a spatula until well combined.
Spread the batter into the baking pan and bake for approximately 22 to 24 minutes. Check brownies by inserting a toothpick in the centre of the pan, there should be a few crumbs clinging to the toothpick. Because ovens vary, it's a good idea to check your brownies a couple of minutes before the indicated time to make sure you don't over bake them.
Remove brownies from oven and place on wire rack. Let cool in pan before lifting out brownies and cutting.
Salted Caramel Chip Drizzle (Optional)
Melt sea salt caramel chips in a microwave safe bowl in 20 seconds increments at 50% power, stirring caramel in between increments. Repeat until melted.
Pour the caramel into a pastry bag, cut the tip off and drizzle caramel over baked brownies.
