    Hi can you use coco powder instead of chocolate?

    Carnation says:
    Hello Carla, using cocoa in place of chocolate will give a different texture and flavour.

    This recipe works great, no doubt will do this one again.
    I gave it five mins more in oven than recipe states.....perfect!
    Also used mixed chopped nuts instead of walnuts.

    I made this earlier and followed the recipe to a tee, it looked lovely after 35 mins I took it out of the oven to cool and a few mins later I looked again and it had collapsed. What did I do wrong?

    Carnation says:
    Hi Trina, it could be that the brownies were not ready to come out of the oven. Always remember that different ovens will result in different cooking times. Cakes will usually shrink a it but it is important to ensure they are coked before removing. Hope you have better luck next time!

    Hi could anyone tell me can the carnation caramel be frozen?

    Carnation says:
    Hi Piper, We do not recommend keeping any of the tinned products in the fridge or freezer. However once it has been decanted it can be frozen.

    Have made these a couple of times, the first following the video recipe and the second time the recipe on the left, both are devine but the first has the edge for being sqidgy and dense! loved by all who shared them with me. thank you.

    watched video before trying recipe and order in which ingredients are added differs, also the eggs are only mixed with the sugar and not beaten until light and fluffy, does it matter which you follow?

    Carnation says:
    Hi Heather, the video shows how quick and easy the brownies can be to make. However if you have time its always better to whisk your eggs till light and fluffy it will be well worth the effort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes amazing but doesn't make 20 the texture of this brownie is absolutely perfect. It's so easy to make too... I was making for 20 hungry lads so I doubled the recipe that should make 20, and it only made 17 decent size pieces. Unless you want the pieces to be the 'mini bite size' pieces that you can buy in a box from the supermarket, you will need to double this recipe - or triple it like I did. After making a double lot, I decided to make another lot and it's so easy I hardly needed the recipe and it was in the oven in 15 mins. The brownie tastes amazing, texture is perfect mix between sdodgy and chewy and it's so easy to make. 5star!
