Salted Caramel Brownies

IMG_3175

These Salted Caramel Brownies are insanely delicious! I already have a few eggless brownie recipes but you can’t have too many so I wanted to adapt one of my recipes to have salted caramel frosting. This is an easy salted caramel frosting. Also, I was watching the Cake Boss and he added honey to his brownies so I decided to try it out!

If you want to make a brownie without honey but use the salted caramel frosting, then use one of my other recipes for the brownie.

 

Salted Caramel Brownies

Mix together:

  • 1 and 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Then add in:

  • 1 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (or egg replacer equivalent to 4 eggs)

Mix well and then add in dry ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cup cocoa 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Mix until smooth. Bake 325 degrees F in a parchment lined 9 by 13 inch pan for approximately 40 minutes.

Cool and top with frosting.

 

Salted Caramel Frosting

Melt butter in a small saucepan and then add in the brown sugar, cream and salt:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (35%)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Make sure the sugar and the salt is dissolved and bring to a boil on medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add in:

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Allow to cool to room temperature and then gradually beat in the icing sugar until the consistency you want:

  • 2-3 cups icing sugar

Spread over cool brownies. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Note: Refrigeration will make these even fudgier!
