Salted caramel things are pretty fashionable right now, and I wanna be cool, so I’ve finally gotten around to making something with this flavor combo. 

But really though, it’s a pretty great flavor combination, and if you haven’t had the salted caramel hot chocolate at Starbucks, you gotta get that. 

Homemade Brownies


This time around, I decided to re-do my old brownie recipe. While it was always tasty, I thought it needed a bit of a texture revamp. Then, I topped it with a caramel sauce and coarse sea salt that popular flavor combo. Still, this new recipe is even better than the last, and it’s a great brownie all on its own. 

Salted Caramel Brownies


I added chocolate chips to the brownies just to add an extra kick of chocolate and sweetness, and you could also add nuts if you prefer. I prefer just straight chocolate because… well because nuts take up room for more chocolate.
