Salted Caramel Brownies

I was a little late to the salted caramel obsession, but I am trying my best to catch up :)

So today I have something very decadent for you all. The flavour and cheweiness of these brownies is just incredible.

You will need:
175g white granulated sugar
10g butter
150ml double cream
1 tsp sea salt (the best sea salt is Maldon, made in the town of Maldon, UK (not that far from me!) since 1882. You can get it internationally on Amazon)

If you already have a favourite brownie recipe, feel free to use that, otherwise you will need:

250g good quality dark chocolate
250g unsalted butter
4 large eggs
300g granulated sugar
150g plain flour
sea salt, for sprinkling

To make the caramel:
Put the sugar in a saucepan and heat until it melts, until you get a medium to dark brown, like a 1p coin. Remove from the heat and add the cream, butter and salt. The mixture will bubble, but return to the heat for a few more minutes, stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool.

For the brownies:
Heat the oven to 180C and line a 9x9inch (23x23cm) pan with baking parchment.

Melt the chocolate over hot water or 10 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring well between heating. Separately, melt the butter, and mix with the chocolate. Beat the eggs and sugar until foamy (or use an electric whisk). Add the chocolate to the eggs and sugar mixture, then fold in the flour until just mixed.

Pour half of the mixture into the tin, then pour in the caramel. Save a little for the top if you like the top to be more chewy. Add the remaining brownie mixture and any remaining caramel with a little sprinkle of salt on the top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until just cooked. Allow to cool for as long as you can wait, cut into squares and enjoy.
