I’m going to make a big statement here… I honestly think these Salted Caramel Egg Brownies are one of the best things I’ve ever made! They are absolutely heavenly and I could eat them every day! The chocolate brownie is the perfect level of gooeyness and fudgeyness, it’s filled with salted caramel sauce, and each piece is topped with half a Cadbury’s Caramel Egg that I’ve sprinkled some sea salt on. My mouth is actually watering as I type this, I’m not kidding! Go and make these Salted Caramel Egg Brownies immediately – you will not regret it!
Step by step…
I started by melting the dark chocolate and butter together in a pan on a low heat. I let it cool for 5 minutes. In a bowl I whisked together the eggs and light brown sugar.
I added the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly as I poured it in. Then I added the plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. I poured the batter into a lined traybake tin, then added blobs of salted caramel sauce all over.
While it baked for 20 minutes, I cut the Caramel Eggs in half and sprinkled coarse sea salt over them.
I took the brownies out of the oven, pressed the eggs in, then they went back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
What caramel sauce should I use?
My favourite caramel sauce to use is my Homemade Caramel Sauce, it’s rich, smooth and absolutely divine! You can also easily add salt to it to make it into a salted caramel sauce. If you don’t want to make your own, it’s quite easy nowadays to find a good quality ready made caramel (or salted caramel) sauce in the shops or online. I have used Tesco’s Finest, Bonn Maman and Carnation Caramel in the past with great results.
