INGREDIENTS…


150g 70% dark chocolate (I like Lindt)

50g milk chocolate

200g unsalted butter

3 large eggs

275g caster sugar

95g plain flour

30g cocoa powder

100g milk chocolate chips, or chocolate chopped up into small pieces

1 tin Carnations caramel

1 tsp sea salt


Jill Bakes’ Salted caramel brownies

INSTRUCTIONS…


Preheat oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9x9 baking tray with baking paper.


Melt together the butter, dark and milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave for 1-2 mins until melted. Leave to the side to cool to room temp.


Using an electric whisk/stand mixer, whisk together the eggs & caster sugar for a few mins until pale, moussey, and double the original volume!


It's done when you lift the whisk up and it leaves a trail for a couple of seconds before disappearing.



When whisked, pour the cooled choc mix over eggs and fold together carefully. It might take time, but be patient - you don't want to knock out the air!


Once completely combined, sift the cocoa powder & plain flour on top of the chocolate mix and fold together gently. Fold through the choc chips.


Mix the salt into the caramel.


Pour half the brownie batter into the prepared tin and pour over half the salted caramel. Dollop over the rest of the brownie mixture making sure all the caramel is covered. Add a quarter of the remaining caramel and swirl into the brownie mixture with a skewer. Leave the rest to drizzle over the cooked brownies.


Bake in the oven for 24-28 minutes.


They're done when they're not wobbling when you shake the tin, and a skewer should come out mostly clean.


Once baked, leave to cool in the tin completely.


Drizzle over the rest of the caramel and put into the fridge overnight.


Use a hot knife to cut the brownies for a nice clean cut. I cut into 16 pieces.


Will last in an airtight container for about a week
