Salted Caramel Brownies

Salted Caramel Brownies \\
These are my go to brownies. Like, the best brownie recipe ever. The only brownie recipe you will need. I have been baking them for two years trying to find a way to make them not disappear before the camera got a moment to snap a pic. Trying to snap a pic without stealing a bite and smearing caramel everywhere. Debating on if you guys realllly needed to know what the best brownie recipe in the world was. I mean, we have set some boundaries. Keep some secrets from one another. Right? Otherwise this relationship just may start to get serious. And, I like the mystery.

But, I’m feeling a hankering for some amazing chocolaty goodness and these salted caramel brownies are going to really satisfy that craving. Since I’m already making a batch, might as well share some with you. I’m nice like that. Watch out, you may never come back from this recipe.

  • 1/2 lbs unsalted butter
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips, plus 6 oz
  • 3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tbs instant coffee granules
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 2 tbs
  • 1/2 cup flour, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 teas baking powder
  • 1/2 teas salt
  • 5 to 6 ounces good caramel sauce
  • 2 to 3 teas large flaked seas salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 12 baking dish with foil and grease.

In the bowl of a double boiler over simmering water, melt the butter with the 8 oz chocolate chips and the chopped chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove form heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Add the eggs and whisk in the coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar. Let cool for 10 minutes longer.

Whisk the 1/2 cup flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture. In another bowl, toss the remaining 6 oz chocolate chips with the remaining 2 tbs flour. Quickly stir into the brownie batter without worrying about perfection. Pour into the prepared pan and shake a bit to even out.

Bake for 33-35 minutes, until just set. Be careful not to over-bake. Remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool.

Heat the caramel sauce until smooth and pour-able. Spoon over the brownies and sprinkle with salt.

When cool, divide into bars and serve.

  1. I’ve been craving brownies for weeks. Gah! Why did you do this to me?

  2. Those may be the best looking brownies I’ve ever seen. They make me want to weep (that’s a good thing). They just need more caramel. In fact, just pass the bowl of that over and I’ll dunk as I eat.

  3. These brownies look so yummy!! Love the salted caramel!

  4. Thanks for sharing your secrets!!!

  5. They certainly look dense and chewy enough to qualify as the best brownies to me! I’ll try not to get too clingy now that you’ve shared such a secret with me ;-)

  6. I think you could pour salted caramel on just about anything, and I’d totally eat it… maybe even liver. (OK, maybe not liver. But everything else still goes.)
    But pour it on top of brownies, which might just be my favouritest food in the world ever? Yeah, I’m done for.

  7. These look SO GOOD, Kita! Isn’t it funny how it’s the recipes people make most often that never make it to the blogs? I’m so happy you got around to posting these because I can already feel my life becoming more whole just by looking at the picture….

  8. Oh my heavens – Kita – these look amazing! Isabelle is right – salted caramel is the piece de resistance and to meld it with a brownie – *sigh* I know what I’ll be making this weekend!!

  9. These look amazing. I love the caramel sauce along with the salt. I love the sweet and salty combination.

  10. Whoa! I love salted caramel. Great idea!

  11. Look at those fudgy beauties. Now I have a hankering for thick brownies drizzled with a double dose of salted caramel. Om nom nom!

  12. This is my absolute favorite kind of brownie!! SO good!
