  • cup cocoa
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp espresso powder optional
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25 caramel candies unwrapped
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream


  • 6 caramel candies unwrapped
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • flaky sea salt



  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC (350ºF).
  • Line a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8) square pan with foil or baking paper, leaving a couple of cm (inches) to overhang on two sides.
  • Lightly grease the foil or baking paper.
  • Using a large mixing bowl, blend the cocoa, sugar, salt, flour, espresso, and chocolate chips.
  • Whisk until well blended. Add the eggs, oil, water, and vanilla and stir with a rubber spatula until blended.
  • Scoop half of the batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer.
  • Place your 25 caramel candies and 2 tbsp cream in a microwave-safe mixing bowl.
  • Cook in 20 to 30 seconds intervals, stirring continuously until the caramel candies are melted and completely smooth.
  • Pour the caramel sauce evenly over the brownie batter in the pan.
  • Add the remaining brownie batter on top of the caramel sauce.
  • I usually drop spoonfuls of batter all around the pan and then carefully spread it into an even layer.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until brownies are baked through but still fudgy.
  • Be careful not to over bake, remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool down for 30 minutes before topping it.


  • Microwave caramel candies and cream until melted and smooth.
  • After the brownies have cooled down for 30 minutes, dribble the topping over the whole pan of brownies.
  • Immediately sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  • Allow the brownies to finish cooling on the cooling rack.
