Salted Caramel Brownie Sandwiches

This is a rich and decadent dessert that you will only need one of, but it is oh so good. The sandwich is a perfect combination between a cookie and a brownie and the salted caramel frosting in-between could not get much better. The salted caramel is not too salty but has just the right kick to offset the sweetness.

For the Brownie Cookie:
12 oz Chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons of Butter
2 Eggs
2/3 cup of Sugar
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup of Flour
1/4 teaspoon of Baking Powder

For Salted Caramel Frosting:
1 cup of Butter, softened
2 cups of Powdered Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup of Caramel


For the Brownie Cookie:

First, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Next, place 7 oz. of the chopped chocolate and the butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until melted. Set this aside.

Now, using a mixer, mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla for 15 minutes. When it has reached a pale and creamy consistency, add the flour, baking powder, melted chocolate mixture, and remaining chopped chocolate, mix well.

Now, let the brownie cookie mixture rest for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cover two sheet pans in wax or parchment paper.

Finally, spoon the mixture, about one tablespoon, onto the wax paper and bake 8-10 minutes or until done. Let them cool completely on the tray.

For the Salted Caramel Frosting:

First, place the butter in a bowl and beat until creamed. Add the powdered sugar and salt and mix until combined. 

Now, add the caramel and mix until combined.

The LAST step, take one brownie cookie and spread frosting, then add the other cookie on top.
