Decadent chocolate caramel brownies

image

This week I had half a can of delicious condensed caramel sitting in the fridge after making mini banoffee pies last weekend. I wanted some inspiration for using up the remaining and came across this delicious recipe from Carnation. It was a huge hit with our Life Group on Wednesday night, so much so I decided to make a double batch for Church and our monthly Contact the Elderly tea party tomorrow. I doubt we’ll have leftovers. They are truly divine and super easy to make.  If you’re doubling the batch you’ll need a bigger pan and of course you’ll need to lengthen the cooking time. Mine took about 55 minutes at 180oC.

Dimple’s Decadent Mint Chocolate Brownies

image

I recently discovered the most amazing food blog, Shivaay Delights. Dimple has been following me for a while,  but I only got around to checking out her blog recently and I’m kicking myself I didn’t do it sooner. Her recipes are inspired, and I couldn’t resist trying out these Decadent Mint Chocolate Brownies for an afternoon tea party today.

They’re everything you’d want a chocolate brownie to be… moist, gooey and rich, but with the added surprise of a welcome refreshing, almost palette  cleansing property, given by the addition of fresh mint. They are truly sublime and delightfully straight forward to make. I added a swirl of chocolate buttercream and a fresh mint leaf from the garden, to let my guests know they were mint chocolate. Enjoy the pics, and be sure to check out Dimple’s blog here.
