  1. In a small sauce pan over medium/low heat combine all ingredients for the caramel. Stir and let it bubble for 2-4 minutes. Transfer to a small plate lined with parchment paper. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes until solid. Then cut into 1/4″ squares.
  2. In a double boiler melt chocolate and butter (or palm shortening) together over low heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine, flour, sugar, eggs, and salt, then stir in the melted chocolate and butter. Pour batter into a 8″ by 8″ square baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  4. Sprinkle half the caramel squares over the brownie batter. Bake on 350F for 35-40 minutes (more or less for more cakey or gooey), then remove and cool for 15-20 minutes to solidify, they will crumble if you don’t let them cool. (you can place brownies in the freezer for 10 minutes to speed up the cooling process).
  5. Sprinkle with remaining caramel squares and sea salt flakes, cut, and serve!
Recipe Notes

*If your caramel doesn’t set up after freezing, it means it is undercooked. The longer caramel cooks, the harder it becomes.
