It's safe to say I'm pretty obsessed with baking at the moment, especially brownies. I decided to have a go at combining a few of my favourite things with them: salted caramel and popcorn.

The first attempt I put the caramel on top but it went rock hard in the oven. I had another go, this time layering the caramel in the middle, and they came out perfectly gooey and chewy! Here's my salted caramel and popcorn brownie recipe.

Ingredients

200g dark chocolate

175g butter

325g caster sugar

130g plain flour

3 medium eggs

397g can of condensed milk

The Cornish Sea Salt Co original salt

a few handfuls of plain popcorn

Step 1: Brownies

200g dark chocolate

175g butter

325g caster sugar

130g plain flour

3 medium eggs

Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted and smooth, remove from the heat and stir in the sugar, then stir in the flour and finally the eggs.

Step 2: Salted caramel

397g can of condensed milk

2-3 pinches of salt – I used salt from the The Cornish Sea Salt Co

Empty the condensed milk into a pan, add 2-3 pinches of salt – you can add more or less depending on your taste – and heat gently, stirring all the while. It will start to thicken; when you can turn a spoon upside down without any caramel falling off it's ready! Don't be tempted to overcook it.

Step 3: Putting it all together

Pour half of your brownie batter into your lined baking tray. Spoon over your salted caramel. Sprinkle over a few handfuls of popcorn. Pour over the other half of the brownie batter.

Step 4: Bake!

Bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes at 170 degrees.

Step 5: Enjoy!

I'm totally blowing my own trumpet here, but these are the most amazing brownies in the world! You have got to try making them, they're really quick and easy to do. The only problem is, it's hard to stop at one...
