  • Line a shallow bowl or pie pan with parchment (spray with oil just in case).
  • Melt your sugar in a medium, dry saucepan over medium-high heat while stirring as needed to break up large chunks. You’re looking for a copper color and no solid pieces of sugar. (approx. 5 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and stir in butter, doing your best to incorporate the butter entirely.
  • Stir in cream and salt.
  • Return the saucepan to the stove over medium-high heat bringing it back to a simmer.
  • Cook simmering caramel for a few more minutes.
  • Pour the caramel out into shallow bowl or pie pan and transfer to your freezer.
  • Freeze until solid, around 30 minutes


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F and line your brownie pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large heavy-based pan.
  • In a bowl or large wide-mouthed measuring cup, beat the eggs with vanilla and sugar.
  • Measure the flour and salt into another bowl.
  • Once the chocolate mixture has melted, let it cool a bit before beating in the eggs and sugar.
  • Add the salt and flour mixture as well, beating it to combine smoothly.
  • Scrape a portion of the batter into the lined pan.
  • Top with pieces of the hardened caramels.
  • Cover with the remaining brownie batter.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes, checking in after 20 minutes. You’re looking for the top to have dried to a paler brown speckle while the middle is still dark, dense and gooey
