We've used a mixture of dark chocolate in these brownies which we think works best but you can adapt them to whatever you like.  Great served warm with some raspberries and a small scoop of vanilla ice cream mmm...

These are insanely good – perfect for family treats, Valentines Day, Sunday pudding, charity bake sales, birthdays, Tuesdays…

I run a market stall, every time we serve this it sells out fast. Give this a try - it can't fail to please. We love it!

Buttery baking spread* or butter, plus a little extra for greasing

200g

Dark chocolate (we used half 70% and half 50% cocoa solids)

200g

Flaky sea salt

1 level tsp

Caster sugar

200g

Eggs 

4

Plain flour

130g

Cocoa powder

50g

*recipe based on 70% fat baking spread

You will also need...

23cm (9in) square baking tin, greased and lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 7

Watch our salted caramel brownie recipe video before you get started!

Step 2 of 7

Step 1 brownies

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens) Gas Mark 4. Prepare the ingredients.

Step 3 of 7

Melt the butter and chocolate together over a low heat in a saucepan or 20 second burst in the microwave. 

Don’t rush this stage to avoid burning the chocolate.

Step 4 of 7

Step 2 brownies

In a small bowl, beat half the caramel from the can with the sea salt – it will loosen. Put the rest of the caramel in a large bowl with the sugar and eggs, and beat with an electric hand mixer or balloon whisk. Beat in the chocolate and butter.

Step 5 of 7

Step 3 brownies

In another bowl, combine the plain flour, cocoa powder and then sift this on top of the chocolate mix. Mix until smooth. Pour half the brownie batter into the tin and spread out to the edges with a spoon or spatula.

Step 6 of 7

Step 4 brownies

Using a teaspoon, drizzle half of the salted caramel on top of the brownie mixture in long stripes. Spoon the rest of the brownie batter on top and smooth it out, trying not to disturb the caramel beneath.

Step 7 of 7

step 5 brownies

Top with the rest of the caramel in lines once again and then use a skewer to marble the caramel and brownie mixture slightly. Bake for 30-35 mins or until risen. The top should be a little crusty and the centre should wobble very slightly when you shake the tin. Let it cool completely in the tin, then cut into squares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! My grandchildren love making these brownies when they visit, so I always make sure I’ve got the ingredients ready in the cupboard for when they come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous & Gooey!! I’ve made these a few times now, and I always have to make a double batch, as they don’t last very long in our house!! So quick and easy to make. The video is great to follow. I also like to put a larger quantity of the caramel in the middle rather than the top, as it’s so yummy biting into a a gooey caramel bit. I cook mine for 45 mins and they come out perfectly. As hard as it is to wait until they cool completely before you cut them into squares, do try to be patient!! It’s well worth the wait!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! This is a lovely recipe. After reading the reviews I decided to only use a tablespoon of the caramel for the drizzle on the top so that I could put more of the caramel in the centre. I also cooked it for 50 mins at 160 in a fan oven and let them cool for a hour so that they could firm up before cutting into them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible...best ever brownies Had a tin of caramel to use up so gave this recipe a go. Well it didn't disappoint. The most fudgiest, caramelly, gooey brownies. Just one tip, they take a lot longer to cook than what's stated in the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh so delicious Made the salted caramel chocolate Brownie easy to make, didn't take long to cook but they lied about the portions, they said 18 portions or cut into 18 but oh no 4 of us devoured it in a day so yummy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bake! Absolutely loved these and so easy to make. Next time I will add more caramel to the middle layer I think as it got a bit lost with the chocolate. The caramel on top just seemed to be decoration rather than flavour so I don’t think it will detract from the flavour. Will make again and add some chopped nuts for texture
