What is a chocolate brownie?
- A brownie is dessert that is usually baked in a square shape.
- Brownies can include nuts, chocolate chips, cream cheese, candy, cookies, and so much more.

How do you make Salted Caramel Brownies?
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Over medium heat melt chocolate chips and one cube of butter, stirring often.
- Remove from heat and add in flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
- Pour into a lightly greased 9×13 baking pan. Space caramels out evenly amongst brownie batter and gently push them into it.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. In a small saucepan add remaining caramels and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream. Melt caramels over medium heat stirring often until it forms a creamy consistency.
- Drizzle over the top of warm brownies and add a dash of sea salt flakes before the caramel sets. Cut into squares and enjoy.
Do you have to make your own caramel sauce?
No. You can buy caramel sauce and drizzle over the top if you prefer or are short on time. I would recommend warming it first and then adding it to the top of the brownies.
What is the difference between a baking pan and a baking dish?
- A baking pan is dark in color and resembles a metal pan.
- A baking dish refers to a glass or ceramic dish, that is oven safe.
