Ingredients

  • 1 x 260g jar of Taste the Difference salted caramel sauce
  • 150g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 250g dark chocolate, 72% cocoa solids, roughly chopped
  • 4 medium eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g plain flour
  • 4 x 32g Crunchie bars, cut into large shards

Step by step

Get ahead

Chill the caramel the day before. Brownies can be kept in the fridge for 1 day before the Crunchie topping starts to soften. Without the topping, they keep for up to 4 days in the fridge, or can be frozen for up to 1 month.

  1. You need the caramel to be firm, otherwise it will dissolve into the brownie when baking, so pop it in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, but preferably overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 170°C, fan 150°C, gas 3. Grease and line a 20cm square fixed-base cake tin. Put the butter, caster sugar and syrup in a heavy-based saucepan and place over a medium low heat. Stir the mixture until it’s smooth and the sugar has almost melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate until smooth. Pour into a bowl and cool for 20 minutes until lukewarm, then mix in the eggs and vanilla. Sift in the flour and a pinch of salt, and fold through until just combined.

  3. Pour half of the mixture into the tin and use a tablespoon to dollop over 16 equally sized spoonfuls of the salted caramel. Sprinkle on the shards of 2 Crunchie bars, then pour the remaining brownie mixture over the top to cover. Bake for 40-45 minutes. The brownie will still have a wobble to it, but will set during cooling. Sprinkle over the remaining Crunchie shards if using and press in very lightly.

  4. Cool in the tin for 20 minutes, then transfer to the fridge for 2 hours to set before slicing.
