Caramel Brownies Tips
What kind of caramels should you use to make caramel brownies?
When making caramel brownies, we generally recommend using chewy caramels instead of hard caramels. Chewy caramels melt more easily, creating a rich, gooey caramel layer within the brownies. Hard caramels may not fully melt, resulting in a less desirable texture.
How can you make caramel brownies your own?
To make caramel brownies your own, experiment by adding mix-ins to the brownie batter using your favorite brownie recipes
as inspiration. Additions like chopped nuts are fantastic for adding texture, while adding a little coffee gives these treats a complex flavor profile. For a delightful sweet-and-salty contrast, try drizzling extra caramel sauce on top and sprinkling a little sea salt over the caramel layer.
How do you store caramel brownies?
To keep caramel desserts
like these brownies as soft as possible, we recommend storing them in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. They will last up to a week when stored in the refrigerator, but you’ll want to let the brownies come up to room temperature before serving for the best flavor. Since you can store these for a few days, these would make a great make-ahead potluck brownie recipe
for your summer gatherings.
Can you freeze caramel brownies?
You can freeze caramel brownies for up to 3 months. The texture may not be as luscious as before they were frozen, but they will still taste great. Defrost the brownies in the refrigerator overnight before serving. —Lindsay Mattison, Taste of Home Contributing Writer
