Caramel Cornflake Brownies

This recipe is inspired by the amazing guys at Crumbs and Doilies, if you don’t already know about them you need to check them out. This recipe is super delicious and has everything you need in a brownie. There is a little bit more to do than with a traditional brownie but sooo worth it, so give it a go and make sure you read the whole recipe before you start.

Prep Time: 30 mins

Cook Time: 20-24 mins

Portions: 12 Brownies or 24 Mini Brownies (I like to cut these smaller as they are very sweet)

Ingredients

  • 125g Cornflakes
  • 40g Sugar
  • 40g Butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 200g Dark Chocolate
  • 200g Butter
  • 4 Eggs
  • 270g Caster Sugar
  • 90g Plain Flour
  • 35g Cocoa Powder
  • 225g Sugar
  • 150g Cream
  • 75g Butter

Method

  1. First of all you need to pre heat your oven to 140c ready to toast your cornflakes and prepared your baking tin ready for your brownies
  2. Now take your cornflakes and mix in 40g of sugar and 40g of melted butter, then put this on a baking tray and bake for 10 mins until they become lightly toasted, once they are done put to one side
  3. You will now need to turn your oven up too 160c and then you can start making your brownies. So first you need to take your eggs and sugar and whisk together until they are light and fluffy, this will take some time so I would use an electric mixer to save your arms. You will now need to melt your butter and sugar together either over a bain-marie or in the microwave, both work fine. You can now slowly pour your melted chocolate and butter mixture into your eggs and mix with a spatula slowly, then fold in your flour and cocoa powder. Now pour into your tin and bake for about 25mis so it’s nice and fudgy in the middle
  4. When your brownie is half way through you can start your caramel. First take 225g of sugar and melt in a sauce pan. Try not to stir the sugar until you can see it has nearly melt as it will start to crystalize, and you don’t want that.
  5. Now pour in your cream slowly, but be careful as the sugar will be extremely. You can now add your butter and stir until it is all melted
  6. Now you need to let the caramel boil for a little (just a few mins), but not to much as it will start to burn
  7. You can now pour this over your cornflakes and mix well
  8. By now your brownie should be done.
  9. Leave the brownie in the tin and pour your cornflake mix on top covering the top of the brownie. Now leave them to cool completely before you cut and then enjoy
