Salted Caramel Brownies



Caramel Ingredients
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup full fat plain yogurt or sour cream 
Brownie Ingredients
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate {I used 99% pure chocolate}
  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • sea salt or kosher salt for topping 
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of light corn syrup on medium heat for 5 minutes. At this point the sugar should start to melt. Begin to stir the sugar continuously to prevent it from burning. Continue to cook the sugar for 5 more minutes, or until it starts to boil.
  2. Once the sugar has started boiling, it should be light brown in color. Continue stirring until it has reached 350 F, or medium brown in color. Do not let the sugar burn, you will definitely be able to smell if it has burnt. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let sit for one minute.
  3. Slowly whisk the cream into the melted sugar. Put the saucepan back on the burner and bring the caramel to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the yogurt. Place the caramel back on the stove and heat for 2 -3 minutes.
  4. Remove the caramel from the heat and transfer to a glass mason jar or bowl and let cool to room temperature for 20 minutes in the fridge, or 1 – 2 hours on the counter. Don’t worry if your caramel is runny, it will thicken once cooled. Once the caramel has cooled, preheat the oven to 325 F.
  5. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and chocolate and then set to the side. In a large bowl whisk the sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Add in the warm chocolate to the egg mixture and stir. Next, add the flour and mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  6. Line a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and then spray with cooking oil. Pour 2/3 of the batter into the baking pan, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Spread half of the caramel sauce over the brownie layer and save the rest for a rainy day. Gently top the caramel with the the remaining brownie batter.
  8. Bake the brownies for 15 minutes, remove from the oven, sprinkle sea or kosher salt on the top, and continue baking for 5 more minutes. The brownies should be soft in texture. Do not over bake.
  9.  Remove from the oven and let cool overnight. Pull the parchment paper out of the pan, and cut the brownies into squares.
