Caramel-filled Chocolate Brownies

These are based on the salted caramel brownies that Alexa Chung made on the recent Comic Relief Great British Bake Off. I made them for my boyfriend's birthday as I wanted him to have something nice in his lunchbox at work; they also made for a quick dessert that evening at home (we had his family over for dinner). And they tasted amazing!

I followed the recipe which is here, though as I was short of time I used a tin of Carnation Caramel as the filling, which worked perfectly. I also added a little condensed milk to the brownie mixture as I had a tin open from another recipe and thought it might be nice!

After preheating the oven, I spread half the brownie mixture into a greased pan and spread the caramel on top.

Then cover with the rest of the brownie mixture so there are no gaps.

When it has cooled, drizzle with melted white chocolate

You can see here the caramel in the middle - it tasted amazing!

Plenty for my boyfriend to enjoy in his lunchbox

I'm sharing my brownies with Alphabakes, the blog challenge I co-host with Ros of The More Than Occasional Baker, as the letter I have chosen is B.

I'm also sharing this with Kitchen Clearout over at Madhouse Family Reviews, which is a roundup of dishes and recipes made from things found lurking at the back of the cupboard - which was the case with the Carnation caramel.

The theme for this month's Tea Time Treats, hosted by Karen at Lavender and Lovage and Jane at The Hedgecombers, is chocolate.


  1. Ooh these look amazing, fabulous idea giving them a caramel filling - I might have to give them a go (which is bad news for the diet ! lol). Thanks for linking up with the #KitchenClearout linkie - I always like seeing what other people have lurking in their cupboards !

  2. oooh, I love the oozing caramel, so special. I've never made anything like this with a caramel layer, I must give it a go!
