Salted Caramel Brownies

Since I have a slight addiction to the salty sweet combination, I knew I could not resist these brownies! I could have eaten the whole pan, but that is where having guests for dinner and having a good neighbor to pass along these treats to comes in! I hope you like these as much as I did!

Makes 20 ( 4 points + )

  • ¾ c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • ¾ c. unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 6 T. light stick butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  • 4 T. butter
  • ¼ c. brown sugar
  • 3-½ T. milk, divided
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ c. powdered sugar
  • 1 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • ⅛ tsp. coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9" square baking dish with nonstick spray.
For brownies, combine flour and next four ingredients. Combine melted butter, eggs and vanilla. Add butter mixture to flour mixture, stirring to combine. Scrape batter into baking dish and bake for 19 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

For topping, melt 4 T. butter in a saucepan. Add ¼ c. brown sugar and 1-½ T. milk; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread over brownies and let stand until set ( about 30 minutes)

Combine 2 T. milk and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt and drizzle over caramel. Sprinkle with sea salt; let stand until set.
