Millionaire Brownies

IMG_7720

Who doesn’t like a millionaire short bread? And who doesn’t like a brownie? What if we combined them together – all that soft gooey cakiness topped with caramel and chocolate. What is not to like?

I like a good proportion of caramel in my millionaire goodies so here is my recipe with the proportions I like most.

You Will Need:

For the Brownies:

  • 135g Dark Chocolate (broken into squares)
  • 135g Butter
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 135g Plain Flour
  • 1/2tsp baking Powder

Caramel:

  • 1 Can of Condensed Milk (about 200g)
  • 2 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 60g Butter

Chocolate:

  • 150g Dark chocolate – melted

Method:

  • Grease and line a square 20cm tin and preheat the oven to 180degrees
  • Melt the chocolate and the butter together over a bain marie (heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water), take care not to overheat the chocolate and butter.
  • Once the butter and chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and stir well, put to one side and allow to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved in the eggs and it looks thick and creamy.
  • Gentle fold the chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar making sure it is well incorporated.
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold though to ensure there are no lumps of flour.
  • Pour into the prepared tin and cook for 20-30mins.
  • Allow to cool in the tin. The brownie may sink a little in the middle, this is fine.

Caramel:

  • Melt the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter together in a pan.
  • Bring to the boil while stirring constantly.
  • Then simmer for about 5 minutes or until the caramel has thickened and is slightly darker in colour.
  • Pour over the cooled brownie.

Chocolate:

  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (a bain marie).
  • Once melted pour this over the caramel.

Allow the chocolate to set, cut up into squares and serve.

I cut mine into 16 squares, but it all depends on how big you like yours!
