How To Make Salted Caramel Brownies

May 5, 2017

All about brownies

You’re probably thinking “not another brownie recipe, Hope.” but what can I say? I’d do anything for a gooey, creamy caramel centred chocolate treat. Salted caramel is the craze when it comes to food right now which is why I’ve put together this simple recipe which is not only affordable (35p per brownie!) but super delicious.

With this recipe, you can either make 16 big brownies (defo the best choice) or 32 bite-sized ones. And for you lovely vegetarians out there, this one is also for you!

You will need: 

200g of unsalted butter and a little for greasing

100g chocolate (70%)

100g chocolate (50%)

A can of Carnation Caramel (397g)

1tsp of flaky sea salt

200g golden caster sugar

4 medium eggs

100g of plain flour plus 2 tbsp

50g cocoa powder

Step 1: 

Heat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4 and grease a 23cm square tin with baking paper. Melt the butter in a pan and break in all of the chocolate. Remove the pan from the heat after 2 minutes and wait until the chocolate is fully melted.

Step 2:

Grab a small bowl and mix 175g of the caramel with 1tsp of salt. Then put the rest of the caramel into a large bowl with the sugar and eggs and beat with an electric whisk. Then whisk in the chocolate and butter.

Step 3:

In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa and a pinch of table salt then sift this onto the chocolate mix.

Step 4:

Pour half of the brownie batter into the tin and smooth it with a spatula. Take a teaspoon and put half of the salted caramel on top of the batter layer in 5 evenly spaced strips. Be generous!

 

Step 5:

Spoon the rest of the brownie batter on top and smooth it out but mind the caramel layer! Pop the rest of the caramel in the same stripe pattern.

Step 6:

Scatter some more sea salt on top of the brownies then bake for 30-45 minutes depending on your oven. There should be a firm crust on top but still a little gooey in the centre. Let it cool fully then cut to your sizing.

So there you have it, your mouthwatering rich brownies. Sometimes life isn’t made for sharing! Let me know any other salted caramel recipes in the comments below. Enjoy!

Love,

    These look delicious! 🙂 Definitely need to try these out. Brownies are always a hit or miss for me, but these look so good. 🙂 Hope, can I ask what camera you use to take your food pictures? The brownies looks so crisp and clear and amazing. Thank you.

      They are definitely the best brownies that I’ve ever made and you can’t really go wrong because they’re supposed to be super gooey. I use the Canon 750D and tend to take pictures on the manual setting so I can get the best quality! 🍪
