Baking brownies can be kind of intimidating because it’s one of those “mess up one thing and it’s all over” activities, which is why generally I avoid all forms of baking—I’m the type of person who makes a cake fall.
But, I love desserts and having a brownie every now and then. Sadly, I can’t run to a bakery every time I want them. Whenever I want brownies but don’t want a lot of work, I can make these. Seriously, they are so easy, even I could make them without burning down the kitchen—and they taste pretty great too. Check out the recipe for these simple treats below.
Caramel Covered Brownies
- Prep Time:15 minutes
- Cook Time:1 hour
- Total Time:1 hr 15 mins
- Servings:12 servings
- 12 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 jar caramel sauce (Can be made or bought from the store)
Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a pan with parchment paper or grease it.
#Spoontip: Use parchment paper because nothing sticks to it and it has fewer calories than butter.
Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl.
Combine the butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl. I used my hand mixer but a spatula would work just as well.
Add in the cocoa powder and flour.
Pour the batter into the lined/greased pan. Bake for 1 hour.
Pour caramel sauce (as much or as little as you want) over the brownies before serving.
