Salted Caramel Brownies

Decadent and over the top, just how we like it

These brownies are the perfect decadent treat to end a long week. And, they’re a lot simpler than they look! The trick to the gooey caramel center is to half-bake a thin layer of brownie batter and melt down caramel candies with some salt and cream to make the filling. If you’re feeling extra special, you can make your own salted caramel but using the candies is a great shortcut. Spread a layer of the caramel filling, top it carefully with more brownie batter and continue baking until done. The coup de gras is a generous sprinkling of good sea salt on top to bring it all together.

Baking is my true passion, and I love to try new things. I believe in being fearless in the kitchen, making things from scratch, and having fun. There's nothing more relaxing than making bread or cookies after a long day.

Emily is an editor by day and blogger / baker by night. Living in the beautiful state of Colorado, she has the added difficulty of making her recipes cooperate with the altitude, which can pose a number of problems for just about any part of the recipe from measurements to baking time. But, she is certainly up to the challenge with altitude-adjusted recipes for sweet tooth fanatics like today’s Salted Caramel Brownies (come on now, you wouldn’t say no to one of those) to cakes, cookies, and even a smattering of savory dishes. And don’t worry, for those closer to sea level, she’ll tell you what you need to know. Now, head over to She Makes and Bakes to see what Emily has cooking!
