baking, dessert, sweet


Not so long ago I posted a recipe for a salted caramel apple pie. When I first tested the recipe for that, I ended up with leftover salted caramel sauce, so I had think about what other sweet treat I could come up with to use it up. I’d been planning to make my chocolate orange brownies that weekend, so instead decided to combine the two to make salted caramel chocolate brownies.

The gooey-ness of the salted caramel chocolate brownies combined with the crunchy topping of the salted pretzels makes for an interesting and tasty texture combination.

For the salted caramel sauce:
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of caster sugar
2 tablespoons of vegan butter
1/2 cup of soy milk
1 teaspoon of salt

For the brownies:
2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of white sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of aquafaba*
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of soy milk
1/2 cup of chocolate chips

9 salted pretzels

*Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of chickpeas.

1. Start by making the salted caramel sauce. Add the brown sugar, caster sugar, soy milk and butter to a small saucepan. Simmer over a low heat until the sauce starts to thicken, stirring regularly (this should take around 10 minutes). Once thickened, stir in the salt. Leave this to cool slightly while you make the brownies mixture.

2. To make the brownies, mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add in the aquafaba, vegetable oil and soy milk and mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.

3. Pour the brownie mixture into a baking tin lined with baking paper. Drizzle over the salted caramel sauce and the top with the pretzels.

4. Cook for 25-30 mins at 200 degrees. You want the brownies to be gooey rather than cake like, so don’t leave them in for too long! Leave to cool slightly before cutting.  Serve the salted caramel chocolate brownies with vegan vanilla ice cream.
