How to make your own caramel stuffed brownies

Brownies stuffed with a caramel centre? Sounds like the perfect combination to us! And now you can have your own delicious batch, thanks to this easy recipe.

What you’ll need:

Caramel sauce

    • 175g caster sugar
    • 150ml double cream
    • 10g unsalted butter
    • large pinch of  sea salt
    • 180g plain flour
    • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (like Green and Blacks)
    • 1/4 tsp salt

Brownie mixture

  • 300g dark chocolate
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 220g light brown sugar
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

What you’ll need to do:

  1. To make the caramel place the sugar into a medium saucepan, set over medium heat and cook until the sugar melts and caramelises.
  2. Pour in half the cream and all the salt, be careful the mixture will bubble up violently. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
  3. For the brownies preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a pan and line with a strip of parchment leaving about a two inch overhang along the long edges to make removing the brownies easier.
  4. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder and salt together into a medium bowl and set aside.
  5. Place the chocolate and butter into a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water, and stir occasionally until the mixture is fully melted.
  6. Take the bowl of the heat and add the eggs and sugars and beat until the mixture is smooth. Sieve over the flour mixture and gently fold together.
  7. Divide the mixture equally in half and spread out the first half into the prepared tin. Then pour the caramel over the batter leaving a border around the outside. You now need to spread the remaining batter over the caramel.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  9. You can test that your brownies are done by inserting a fork or skewer in the middle and if it comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, your brownies are done.
  10. Allow to cool completely before using a sharp knife to cut into squares.
