Extra Chocolatey Brownies with Salted Caramel Drizzle

Now that fall has arrived it’s time my baking hits high gear. I was really wanting to making brownies, because for some reason this is the hardest thing for me to master still. However, I wanted to incorporate a little bit of fall flavor into my brownies. Which is how I came up with brownies with salted caramel drizzle. I didn’t truly create either of the recipes I used. I tweaked this brownie recipe, and used a Bobby Flay salted caramel recipe.

Items I used:

Kitchenmaid Stand Mixer

Rubber Spatula (Mine are this brand, I just can’t find the exact ones)

Aluminum Pan

Squeeze Bottle

Brownies

The first thing I did was pre-heat my oven. After that I melted butter, and added it to my KitchenAid with sugar. Once those were combined, I added cocoa powder.

I followed that up by adding the rest of the ingredients (eggs, coffee, baking powder, vanilla), minus the flour. One ingredient I added that the original recipe didn’t have was brewed coffee. I believe that the coffee bring out more of a chocolatey flavor. Once that is all combined, I slowly added the flour a little at a time to get an even and smooth batter.

I removed the bowl from the KitchenAid to fold in the chocolate chips, because I don’t want to over mix the batter. Once  the chips were evenly distributed throughout the batter I pour it into my pan. I don’t have any good baking dishes for brownies, and I hate doing the dishes, so I used an aluminum pan and it worked great.

I put those in the oven for around 60 minutes. Which is way longer than I thought it would be. The original recipe said 30 minutes, but I think that all the extra chocolate chips might have made it take longer. Plus, every oven is different.

Salted Caramel

While that was baking in the oven I made the salted caramel. Honestly, the entire process is fairly quick paced so I completely forgot to snap more than one picture. I combined the sugar and water and let the caramelize for about 10 minutes. While that was caramelizing I warmed the cream, and whisked it into the caramel. I removed the mixture off of the heat, and added the butter and salt. Once that cooled a bit, I transferred it into a squeeze bottle. I wanted the caramel to look like it was drizzled on, and this definitely gave me my desired look.

Final Result

Once the brownies were done I let them cool for about 10 minutes. Honestly, this is very important. When I tried to cut them right out of the oven it was a mess. After I cut them up and transferred them to a plate, I drizzled on the salted caramel. I don’t think there is too much when it comes to adding the salted caramel. These brownies are very chocolatey, which I love, but I needed a glass of water afterwards. The salted caramel definitely helps bring another dimension of flavor to these brownies.
