Caramel Brownies

Some folks like watching videos instead of reading. So, I’ve got videos for you here. This recipe makes tasty caramel brownies, with a rich chocolate base and chewy caramel chunks. It’s a fun twist on classic treats.

If you love caramel, try these brownies along with cheesecake and cosmic brownies. The caramel is made just right, firm and in big pieces. Mix it with a brownie batter in a 9×13″ pan for about 20 slices.

To get the perfect look, let the caramel cool well. Making the caramel takes time and the right temperature. It should get to a point where it’s soft and chewy.

When the brownies are done, keep them cool to hold their chewiness. In a sealed container, they stay fresh in the fridge for up to a week. Or, freeze them for up to 3 months.

Ingredients List & How To Make It (Step by Step)

To make tasty caramel brownies, you need dark chocolate. Also, gather unsalted butter, cocoa powder, eggs, caster and brown sugars, kosher salt, vanilla extract. You also need all-purpose flour, and homemade caramel chunks.

  1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line the 9×13″ pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and butter in a saucepan until smooth. Then, let it cool a bit.
  3. In a big bowl, beat eggs, sugars, and vanilla until frothy.
  4. Slowly add the chocolate mix, stirring so the eggs don’t cook.

  6. Put in the caramel chunks and fold to mix.
  7. Pour the batter in the pan, saving half a cup. Smooth it out.

If the caramel doesn’t set, chilling them overnight can help. It turns the chewy caramel chunks into a tasty treat.

Running out of golden syrup is not the end. Use honey or light corn syrup instead. Your perfect caramel brownies will still be great.
