In search of a decadent treat to share with friends? These salted caramel brownies are the answer! Easy to make and perfect for a crowd.
Hey yall! Kelley from the Grant life here again to share an easy dessert recipe. Today I have a super easy and oh so delicious brownie recipe for yall. Salted caramel brownies! Ohhhh yes!
A few weeks ago I made a pie and had half leftover so I texted my friend and asked if she wanted it. (Instead of having to toss it since no one at my house wanted anymore!) She said no since she wasn’t home but her husband would love it. Great! I packaged it up and dropped it off at their house.
A few hours later I got a text that he had eaten the half ALL BY HIMSELF! He shared one bite of it but ate the rest himself. (It was a really good pie!) But I felt bad that she didn’t get any so I asked “What dessert do you like?” She replied anything with salted caramel. Well, I can do that!
I took a basic (but delicious!) brownie recipe and covered in it salted caramel. I mean I laid the caramel on pretty thick. Then sprinkled some coarse sea salt on top and bam! Salted caramel brownies.
I dropped off the pan (minus one or two!) at her house later that day. She was so excited! I was happy to get them out of my house because let me tell you – they are good! Ooey gooey and THICK! You totally need a glass of milk with these bad boys. But they are perfect for gift giving or holiday parties. Or just because.
