These are every bit as rich, decadent, and indulgent as they look. A super thick and fudgy brownie filled with chocolate chips topped which a sticky layer of salted caramel. If you’re into ooey, gooey, and fudgy– you do not want to miss out on this recipe.
I mean, really. Stop what you are doing and make these brownies.
Ok. Let’s talk about this recipe.
It is so, SO, so easy. I simply used my current favorite homemade brownie recipe (from these Triple Decker Bars) and a jar of caramel sauce sprinkled with sea salt.
I adore this brownie recipe. Which says a lot, because anyone who knows me knows that I am a box-mix-brownie girl. But these brownies? I’d pick these over a box mix. Let’s talk about what makes them so thick and fudgy… basically, it comes down to using a few really good ingredients: butter, sugar, eggs, CHOCOLATE, a little bit of cocoa powder to intensify the flavor, and a little flour.
The proportions of the ingredients are really important to the fudginess of these brownies. You’ll see that compared to the amount of flour there is a LOT of butter and sugar. And no leavening agents at all like baking soda or baking powder. This makes the brownies very dense, exactly how I like them. This recipe also calls for both chocolate and cocoa powder. The chocolate (use a good quality baking chocolate if you can rather than chocolate chips) give these brownies that deep chocolate flavor intensified by the cocoa powder.
