Ingredients

  • 11 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate cut into small pieces
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Fleur de Sel

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream eggs, both sugars and vanilla in a medium bowl using electric hand mixer or standing mixer with paddle.
  3. Add baking powder and salt, mix thoroughly.
  4. In small sauce pan, melt butter over low heat. Add chocolate and stir with wooden spoon until fully melted. A wooden spoon helps for the mixture to not stick too much.
  5. Mix chocolate and butter into sugar mixture. Incorporate flour. Stir until just mixed. Do not over mix, this can cause the brownies to be tough.
  6. Spray a 9X9 square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread brownie batter evenly into the pan.
  7. Cook for 35-40 minutes. When sides begin to pull from the sides remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  8. After brownies and caramel have cooled, drizzle caramel over the top of brownies. Sprinkle Fluer de Sel over brownies allowing it to stick to the caramel. Salt preferences vary.
