Salted Caramel Brownies

As most of you know I love brownies. I mean, who doesn’t? They are dense, fudgy, chocolaty (weird spelling, right?), and more. I know you’re thinking they can’t get any better… wrong! How about caramel and brownies? I love plain brownies, but the addition of caramel just elevates normal peasant brownies to queen status. No joke.

YIELD: 12 brownies; 1 cup of caramel  PREP TIME: 20 minutes

COOK TIME: 30-35 minutes TOTAL TIME: 55 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • Brownies recipe: here
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, cold
  • 2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare the brownie batter (you can use your own recipe or a box). Preheat oven according to recipe.
  2. Next get all ingredients out to make caramel (this will make the process easier).
  3. In a sauce pan put 1 cup of sugar mixing until melted into a gold color.
  4. Once the sugar has no clumps add butter (it will bubble).
  5. Stir until sauce has formed.
  6. Add cold cream, make sure to pour in and stir at the same time.
  7. Allow mixture to boil for about 1 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and add salt (check notes for other options).
  9. Allow to caramel to cool.
  10. While caramel cools take half of the brownies mix and put into greased dish.
  11. Layer caramel on top of brownie mix.
  12. Layer remaining brownie mix over caramel.
  13. Drizzle some caramel over brownies, and bake.
  14. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until brownie has baked.
  15. Once out of the oven allow to cool for 2 hours or more. I put melted chocolate on top, but that’s optional.

NOTES:

  • I used brownie recipe showed above, but you can use a box.
  • You can use salted butter, just omit 1 teaspoon of the salt.
  • I baked my brownies in a 9X9 pan, if you bake in another dish adjust times.

What’s the weather like where you live?

I live in Texas, so the weather is cold and hot (all in the same day, haha). But we haven’t hit the “I’m so cold, I need hot chocolate.” type of weather.
