Salted Caramel Crunch Brownies

There is something really nice about the chocolate, salted caramel combo in these yummy brownies. This is a such lovely and simple recipe that I ask how could you possibly resist?!



Recipe

Makes 12-16

150g/5oz unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
150g/5oz plain dark chocolate broken into pieces
100g/3 1/2oz dulce de leche or thick caramel sauce
2 large eggs
75g/3oz soft brown sugar
75g/3oz caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
50g/ 3 1/2oz self raising flour
100g/3 1/2oz walnut pieces chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt flakes



Method

1/ Grease a 30x30 (12x8) brownie tin and line with non-stick baking paper. Place the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over a low heat and warm until just melted. In a separate saucepan, gently warm through the dulce de leche or caramel sauce. 

2/ Meanwhile place the eggs, brown sugar, caster sugar and salt in a large bowl and whisk until combined. Using a rubber spatula stir in the melted chocolate, flour and half of the chopped walnut pieces (or similar). 

3/ Scrape the mixture into the prepared tin. Scatter over the remaining walnuts then drizzle over the dulce de leche or caramel and sprinkle the salt flakes over the top. 

4/ Bake in a pre-heated oven 200°C (400°C), Gas Mark 6 for 15-18 minutes until just firm to the touch, but with a slightly fudgy texture. 

5/ Leave to cool in the tin for a couple of minutes then lift on to  a board using the lining paper and cut into squares, serve warm or cold. 

AND then sit back, relax and enjoy. YUM! 

Helly's Top Tip:  I use pre chopped mixed nuts instead of walnuts and it works just as well. If you don't have any brown sugar in the cupboard normal sugar will work just as well!
