Ingredients

  • 150 g good quality dark chocolate
  • 185 g unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 275 g golden caster sugar
  • 50 g plain flour
  • 40 g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 60 g ground almonds
  • 170 g frozen Cadbury's Caramel from a 200g bar 24 chunks from a 28 chunk bar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180c and line a baking tray that's approx. 20cmx30cm and 3cm deep with baking parchment. Leave a little of the parchment overhanging the tray to make it easier to get the brownie out later.
  • Melt the dark chocolate and butter together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl isn't touching the water though). Or alternatively melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, giving it a stir each 30 seconds. Then add the butter for the last 30 seconds to melt. Stir and leave to cool slightly.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar on medium until thick and creamy in a large bowl using a mixer or hand whisk. The mixture should leave a trail that sinks after a second or two when you lift the whisk.
  • Slowly whisk again, and pour the melted chocolate butter in. Pour it at the side of the bowl in a thin stream, whisking all the time, so that the eggs don't scramble with the warm chocolate.
  • When the chocolate is thoroughly mixed in, sieve the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder over the mixture, and then add the ground almonds. Fold into the mix gently, in a figure of eight. This will help to keep the air in.
  • Pour the mixture into your baking tray, and use a palette knife to ensure it goes all the way to the edges.
  • Take the caramel bar out of the freezer and break into pieces. Distribute the pieces on top of the brownie mix evenly, so there is 1 piece per portion of brownie. Push the caramel into the mixture slightly and place the tray in the oven.
  • Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tray. Lift the brownie out of the tray using the baking parchment and place on a chopping board. Use a sharp knife to slice the brownie into portions. It will crumble slightly when you cut it, but it crumbles less, the longer you leave it to cool.
