Salted caramel is quite the food darling right now. Ice cream, desserts, candies…it’s everywhere. Have you ever had those amazing Mouth Party caramels? Holy-eat-the-entire-bag goodness. One reason salted caramel is big of course, is that it’s not too sweet and not too salty. I’m not a big sweets person. Give me some salty onion dip and potato chips…that’s a guilty pleasure for me, hon. But I know plenty of people who’d much rather have a chocolate bar, mocha latte or some? other sweet tooth craving. I still like those people. They are my friends…and my mom, totally.
I found this dessert on the absolutely addictive website, Pinterest, which my friend calls “crack cocaine” – not really appropriate but you get the idea. Try it out, you will get hooked – it’s sorta like a virtual bulletin board. Super fun. Anyhow, I looked at the photo of these brownies on the site and clicked through to the recipe. Repinned it. Looked at it again. Then, I put my computer away and it kept coming back into my head: Salted Caramel Brownies. Salted Caramel Brownies. Salted Caramel Brownies.
So, I checked the ‘ol pantry and somehow, I actually had all of the recipe ingredients on hand. Since I don’t have the sweetest tooth in Charm City, I don’t really make that many desserts – usually just for other people or if I happen to taste something amazing and want to replicate it. However, I am completely in love with Taharka Brothers salted caramel ice cream, so…duh. There I went into my tiny Hampden kitchen.
The perfect little sweet salty bite. Bliss. Again, here is the recipe. Insanely good.
