Salted Caramel Brownies

Gooey, rich, decadent, and all round fabulous. Few brownies can reach the heights of the pedestal upon which I place the simple, glorious ‘plain’ brownie. No fussy additions, no fancy flavours. Just a dark, indulgent piece of chocolate magnificence.

 

That being said, this salted caramel brownie recipe is pretty darn good.

A jar of my homemade salted caramel sauce had been lurking at the back of my fridge after making some salted caramel buttercream for a cake in March. It was taking up space, and frankly, I was fighting a daily urge to dip a spoon into it and just it eat straight out of the jar! It was a no-brainer really. Whip up a tray of brownies, and whack in some salted caramel.

The sight of caramel oozing out of a brownie is a beautiful thing. I don’t like to overdo it on the salted caramel though, as I like to still taste the chocolate and enjoy the fudgy texture of the brownie. My method leaves you with some dotted gems of oozy goodness.

I adapted the wonderful Jamie Oliver’s recipe to make these. Apologies for any slightly expanded waist-lines this week!
