Salted Caramel Brownies

Gooey, fudgy, chocolately and indulgent. These salted caramel brownies are exactly what you need for that end of the week treat!


  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 397g can of caramel
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 130g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder


  1. Begin by heating your oven to 180°C / 160°C / Gas Mark 4, then grease a 23cm square baking tray and line with baking parchment.
  2. Take a saucepan and melt the butter over a gentle heat, then break in the chocolate. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the chocolate to melt in the residual heat.
  3. Mix together 175g of the caramel with the sea salt in a small bowl
  4. Pop the rest of the caramel in a large bowl and tip in the sugar and the eggs. Beat with an electric whisk until even, and then whisk in the chocolate and butter mixture.
  5. Grab another bowl and combine the flour and cocoa powder along with a pinch of salt. Sift this into the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.
  6. Pour half of your brownie mixture into the lined tin and smooth off with a spatula. Now spoon half of the salted caramel on top in 5 thick, evenly spaced stripes.
  7. Pour the rest of the brownie batter over the top and smooth again, then top with the rest of the caramel, repeating the stripes. Drag a skewer through the top layer of salted caramel to make a pattern on top.
  8. Scatter a little more sea salt over the top, then bake for around 25-30 minutes until risen with a firm crust on top. Allow to cool completely, then cut into squares and dig in!
