Gooey caramel brownies

There is nothing better than taking a bite into a chunky slab of gooey chocolate brownie and washing it down with a glass of ice cold milk. I’d seen the salted caramel version on smittenkitchen.co.uk but I’m not overly keen on salted caramel, so I left out the salt. These are so deliciously gooey with molten caramel mmm. For once I haven’t used a packet mix. (Yes, really.)

gooey

What you will need: To make the caramel 
100g of white sugar
3 tablespoons of butter 
3 tablespoons of double cream
Place the sugar in the pan over a medium heat. Stir for 5 minutes until the sugar starts to melt into a molten copper coloured liquid. Add the butter and cream and keep stirring until the mixture is nice and smooth. Stir until the caramel is bubbling away and all mixed in nicely (it smells delicious) Pour the golden bubbling pan of caramel onto a bowl with greaseproof paper and pop it in the freezer and wait for it to set! Yes.. It really is that easy!
What you will need: To make the brownies
85 grams of plain chocolate
200g of white sugar
115 grams of butter
85 grams of plain flour
2 eggs 
Preheat the oven to 180. Break up the chocolate into pieces and add it into a bowl with the butter. I popped them in the microwave and stirred them every 20 seconds or so until they had melted. Add in the sugar, eggs and flour one by one and mix them all together the mixture is nice and smooth. Then check on your caramel. If it’s hardened peel it off the greaseproof paper and you should have something that looks a little bit like this..

Cut the slab of caramel up into little pieces (try not to eat too much of it whilst doing so, mmm!) Then place the brownie mix into a glass baking dish and dot little squares of caramel all around the mixture.. Place the dish in the oven and leave to bake for around 30-35 minutes depending on the thickness of your baking dish. (I always use a wooden skewer to see if something is cooked if the skewer comes out clean you’re okay, if the skewer comes back wet with cake / brownie mixture, you will probably need to wait a little longer!) So.. now we wait.

Find something to do in the meantime, pace around the kitchen or play Candy crush on your iPhone like me (that game is so addictive) Does anyone else get nervous at this stage that they won’t turn out great of if you take your eye off them for one second the kitchen will be engulfed in smoke? no? Just me.. okay then. I always set a timer too so I don’t forget. Once they’re done leave them to cool for 20-30 minutes or so and you should have something that looks like this.. behold the dish of chocolate-y caramel gooey goodness and cut out a generous sized slab..

I have to say..This picture here does not do the texture and taste of these brownies justice whatsoever. They are so, so moist. I think they’re served best whilst the caramel is still nice and warm. These little brownie bites are so gooey with thick caramel it’s probably a good idea to have a cold glass of milk nearby (you know, to be on the safe side!) What do you think? This is the first recipe I’ve made from total scratch in a long time. It really is very, very easy! Will you be giving these a go? If I can manage to successfully make these from scratch, you can too.

    Ohhh yummy, these looks and sound deeeelicious! I can almost smell them!

    I've tried to make brownies, and blondes, once, and they turned out absolutely terrible so I have never tried since! These sound so stupidly easy though, and the yummy caramel too! Seriously, when Dan and I get our own house I'm gonna find a huge kitchen and make my way back through all the recipes you've made until I'm too fat to leave the house. Really!
