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

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream eggs, both sugars and vanilla in a medium bowl using electric hand mixer or standing mixer with paddle.
  • Add baking powder and salt, mix thoroughly.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spray a 9X9 square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread brownie batter evenly into the pan.
  • Cook for 35-40 minutes. When sides begin to pull from the sides remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • 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.

Notes

  • Easy variation: Buy a box mix of brownies, bake according to package. Use pre-made caramel sauce, drizzle over brownies, salt with Fleur de Sel.
