How would you like a brownie with caramel and chocolate? The combination is interestingly good; brownie,caramel and chocolates.Certainly you will not pass on this.When I first made these bars..I never thought its gonna be that good..but gosh,they’re heavenly.
For the brownie:
1 cup butter,cubed
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup black cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
For the caramel:
2/3 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1 can condensed milk
1/4 cup cornstarch dispersed in 3 tbsp water
In a saucepan,combine all ingredients except cornstarch with water.Cook until thick and caramel in color for about 30 minutes, then stir in cornstarch with water,mix until caramel is thick.
For the chocolate topping:
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
1 tbsp butter
3 tbsp heavy cream
Combine all in a dish. Microwave until just half melted.Stir until melted and combined.Set aside.
1.Prepare a square baking pan 8x12x2inch,line it with aluminum foil.Spray with oil or smear with butter.
2.In a saucepan,put butter,cocoa powder and tablea .Stir over low heat until melted and smooth.
3.Remove from heat.Add sugar and stir until incorporated.Add vanilla and eggs,one at a time.
4.Stir in the flour until just combined.Spread the mixture in a ready baking pan and bake it at 180 or Â at bake it at 180 or 350 for 30 minutes.Let it cool.
5.Once caramel is done,immediately pour over the baked brownie.Chill for about an hour in the fridge.Then proceed on making the topping.Spread over the caramel layer and chill until set.You will have about 24 squares.
Note: Caramel is best done after baking the brownie.If you want a better squared cut, use a sharp knife dip in hot water,dry then cut.
Hmmnnn…I know you wont say no..I tried to cut them nice and clean…but sorry I’m not that good in that area.I just want to grab them, eat them…
I really..really tried my best not to eat..but the chocolate seems to melt in my fingers..and I realized I must go ahead and try..why not. Lets eat.Lets giggle.Lets be merry.
