Sneakily Caramel Brownies

There are a couple of lessons to be learnt in making these brownies:

1. There is absolutely no sensation more wonderful in this world than melting chocolate over a pan of simmering water. It’s probably the nicest feeling in the world. Nothing seems to happen for the longest time and then suddenly the chunks disappear and you are left with silky, runny, chocolate loveliness.

2. It is very difficult to make brownies this gooey look good. But hey, sometimes food doesn’t have to look good, okay? Sometimes it’s all about the taste.

Speaking of taste…

These are delicious. For a start, they are too gooey for words, so that’s always a good thing. And also, they have sneaky caramel them, which adds to the gooeyness.

Sneaky- no we aren’t making caramel for our brownies. That’s waaay too much effort for the kind of chocolate indulgence we need on this cold January Tuesday.

We are throwing in some Rolos! This was probably the best brownies addition ever. You can’t actually tell when you get a bite of Rolo, the whole thing just has an overall caramel essence that is unmistakable and truly decadent!

Melt the chocolate over a pan over simmering water, and allow it to cool.

While it is cooling, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into a bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, the syrup and milk. Once the chocolate is cool, add that.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Add the rolos.

Bake in a well lined tin for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
