A friend asked me the other day what my favorite dessert is and instantly I float into this fake little dessert world. In this world, there is a big plate with a slightly undercooked brownie in the center of it, dripping with salted caramel, topped with toasted pecans, with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Im melting into my chair as I think about that….give me a second…
Alright I’m back.
But really, how delicious does that sound?
So you know what, I made it! Well, a slightly less decadent version…but the taste has not been sacrificed, I assure you that.
Since we (sadly) don’t all have that time to sit down with that giant plate of dripping caramel, this brownie has a layer of caramel and chopped pecans on top. This way, you can chop it into a square and grab it as you go sink into the couch, under a warm blanket.
Video of Bubbling Sugar. I just had to include this.
After you’ve made that caramel topping, you’re going to look at that pan and think “Oh man this is going to be a pain in the butt to clean”. Fear not, I have a great tip!
TIP TIME: Fill sugar encrusted pot, and any utensils covered in sugar, with water and heat to a boil. This will boil away the hardened sugar and make it easy to clean off.
