Salted Caramel Brownies…Heaven on a Plate

Baked Bree

Baked Bree

We have a Brewster’s Ice Cream shop across the street from our home and this summer they decided to introduce a Salted Caramel (with and without toffee) flavor of pure heaven in a cone that I now cannot live without.  It’s rediculous…first, that they would make it, and second that I keep buying more.  I can’t stop!

I would hate to be the only one overindulging, therefore I am presenting you with the recipe for the most amazing Salted Caramel Brownies ever made (that might be a bit of an overstatement, but seriously, they’re sooo good).  Friday night, a couple of these warm on a plate with a big glass of milk and shameless Bravo television…yeah, that sounds about right.

Salted Caramel

1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon fleur de del
1/4 cup sour cream

Brownies

1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons cocoa
11 ounces bittersweet chocolate (I had an assortment of different kinds)

Bring sugar, water, and corn syrup to a boil over medium-high heat.

While the sugar is coming to a boil, get everything ready to go. Trust me, sugar can go from perfect to burnt in about 5 seconds.

When the sugar turns a deep amber color (around 350 degrees, but I do not use a thermometer for this), Slowly pour in the cream. Whisk constantly. The mixture may seize, especially if your cream is cold, but keep whisking, it will come back together. Add the sour cream and fleur de sel.
