These brownies really do speak for themselves with their oozy salted caramel spilling out onto the plate – YUM! 😍

Salted caramel chocolate brownies

I found a BBC Good Food recipe through Pinterest so I adapted that to make these brownies. The original recipe is here.


  • 200g unsalted butter, plus a little extra for greasing
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 100g chocolate milk chocolate (or more dark if you prefer)
  • 397g can Carnation caramel
  • 1 tsp sea salt (I prefer Maldon)
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 130g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder


Step one.

Heat oven to 180°C (160°C fan). Grease then line a 23cm square traybake tin with baking parchment. Melt the butter in a medium pan, break in all the chocolate, then remove the pan from the heat and wait for the cubes to melt.

Step two.

In a small bowl, mix 175g of the caramel with 1 tsp sea salt. Put the rest of the caramel in a large bowl with the sugar and eggs, and beat with an electric hand mixer or balloon whisk until even.

Step three.

Whisk in the chocolate and butter. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa and a good pinch of table salt, then sift this on top of the chocolate mix. Beat briefly until smooth.

Step four.

Pour half the brownie batter into the tin and level it with a spatula. Using a teaspoon, spoon half of the salted caramel on top of the batter layer in 5 thick, evenly spaced stripes. Spoon the rest of the brownie batter on top and smooth it out, trying not to disturb the caramel beneath. Top with the rest of the caramel in the same stripy fashion. Drag a skewer or tip of a knife through the caramel to make a feathered pattern on the top.

Step five.

Scatter with a little more sea salt, then bake for 25-30 mins or until risen all the way to the middle with a firm crust on top. When ready, the brownie will jiggle just a little when you shake the tin. Let it cool completely in the tin, then cut into squares.

Keep in an air tight container. I like to reheat before I eat so they’re extra tasty!
