Salted Caramel and Walnut Brownies

Do you ever have trouble getting your kids to pack their toys away or put their dirty clothes in the laundry? Are you ever met with resistance when you request that they go back and brush their teeth again because it wasn't done properly the first time? Do your kids roll their eyes when you ask them to make their beds or stack the dish washer? Make them a batch of these and they'll be putty in your hands.

Salted Caramel and Walnut Brownies
from Everyday Gourmet

300g butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 cup plain flour, sifted
1 cup cocoa powder, sifted
100g walnuts, roughly chopped
24 Fantales, unwrapped and roughly chopped (or any other favourite chocolate covered caramel)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt flakes

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.

Lightly grease and line a 30cm x 20cm baking tin with baking paper.

With an electric mixer beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Now add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. On low speed, mix through the cocoa powder and flour. Add the chopped caramels and walnuts and stir through evenly. Pour the mixture into the baking tin and sprinkle with the salt.

Cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before turning out and cutting into squares. Dust with cocoa if you wish.

Best eaten warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


  1. Love how it looks, and guess it tastes even better!! I'll surely make this!! :))

  2. you've got me in a brownie daydream....

  3. Haha, you're a kindred spirit Ally :)

  4. Not sure if I should make these! I've been eyeing this recipe since it came out, but, (hoping to find some americanized units) I clicked where you got the recipe from and those brownies look completely different from yours. They look dry and basic whereas to yours look chewy and delicious. I am sad to have to pass this recipe up, once again, but I have no time to spare. Maybe next time :(

  5. There are lots of conversion charts that you can google - here's one of thousands available on the net. I always use metric as I'm an Australian and we use the metric system. I hope you can try these brownies sometime as they really are delicious.
