Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
What better way to show appreciation to your host or hostess than with chocolate. Especially if that chocolate covered in caramel and sea salt! They make a great gift to bring with you when invited to someone’s home. I’ve also wrapped them individually, tied with ribbon, and placed in a pretty basket for guests to take as they leave MY home.
Salted Caramel Brownies — modified from Cooking Light Magazine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, both sugars, cocoa, and baking powder in a large bowl. Stir well with whisk.
Combine 6 Tbs butter, eggs, and 1 tsp vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir to combine.
Pour batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 19 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Cool on a wire rack.
For topping, melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and heavy cream. Cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Stir with whisk until smooth.
Spread mixture evenly over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
Let stand for 20 minutes until set.
I love this new combo everybody is using with the sea salt…awesome.
This is a lovely recipe. I really enjoy salted caramel and imagine it would be so delicious on a brownie.
Thanks! Yes…the flavors together equals YUM! 🙂
What a great idea to give this homemade delight inside of buying a box of chocolates. I don’t know very many people who don’t like brownies. Pinterest here I come! ~Thea
Thanks so much for pinning AND tweeting Thea!! Glad you like them!

First think I said when I saw this title was OMG! I am so trying these Kenley. As you know it may be a while until I get to since we haven’t even started building yet. A story about that to come. I love this recipe, thanks!
Thanks Cynthia!! And these will be great to make once your kitchen has walls…and a ceiling…and perhaps a floor, an oven, and you know….those basics! 😉
We were just thinking about homemade brownies last night! This post couldn’t have come at a better time 🙂 Can’t wait to make some!
Thanks! Hope you enjoy them!
The salt is such a perfect addition, since it gives such a wonderful contrast to ultra sweetness of the brownie. Looks delicious!
Thanks! And you are so right! 🙂
These would be popular with everyone. (licking lips)
Ooohhhhh YUM!! I really don’t know if this is a good idea for a hostess gift – I would EAT IT ALL ON ROUTE 😉
Haha! That’s why you make two batches. 😉
YUM need I say more?
I think that about covers it! 🙂
Man – those look fantastic! I love a little salty with my sweet!
I do too! Favorite way to have sweets is with a little salty goodness! 😉
It’s hard to go wrong with caramel and sea salt!
You got that right! 🙂

Thanks Eileen! And I think that friend will be quite happy. 🙂
Ummm salted caramel brownies made by cooking light?? I didn’t know that was possible to lighten up any parts of that title haha. These look AMAZING!
I am totally addicted to Cooking Light Magazine — so many amazing recipes that are healthier versions. 🙂
oh yum! and I’d have to make an extra batch for myself, I think!
