These are the most outrageous brownies ever. Chocolate on top of caramel on top of chocolate on top of… you guessed it more chocolate!
Let me explain them to you…
Rich, gooey brownies loaded with melted Snicker chunks topped with sticky sweet caramel and sprinkled with white, milk and dark chocolate chunks. Too much chocolate? Never! These brownies are a chocoholic’s dream but certainly not for the faint hearted; so please bake and consume at your own risk 😉
Ingredients (makes 12 brownies)
For the brownie:
150g unsalted butter, soft at room temp
175g good quality 70% dark chocolate, roughly broken
150g self-raising flour
225g caster sugar
2 large eggs, at room temp
3 x 46g Snicker bars, chopped into small chunks
For the caramel topping:
1 x can condensed milk (396g)
50g unsalted butter, soft at room temp
50g light muscavado sugar
For the topping:
50g milk/dark/white chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and line a 23x23cm baking tin with baking paper.
Start by making the brownie mixture:
Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of water on a medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until fully melted, remove from the heat and leave to cool. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until frothy. Now add in the chocolate mixture and the flour and fold together until fully combined.
Transfer 3/4 of the mixture to the prepared tin, smoothing it out into an even layer. Now dot the Snicker chunks all over on top of the brownie layer. Pour the remaining brownie mixture on top and use a spoon to conceal the Snickers. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes – until the top is no longer shiny and the edges have started to crack. Leave to cool completely.
Now make your caramel:
First measure all of the ingredients into a medium-sized saucepan. Now, on a low to medium heat, melt the ingredients gently until smooth and the sugar has completely dissolved.
Turn up the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring all the time. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture, stirring continuously, for approx. 15 minutes until it has thickened slightly. Turn off the heat and leave the caramel to sit for 5 minutes to thicken up.
Pour the caramel on top of the brownies and use a spoon to spread it into an even layer, covering the whole top. Leave to cool (approx. 20 mins) before scattering the chocolate chunks on top, cut into 12 and serve.
