Earlier this month I had serious chocolate cravings. I spent a few minutes on Pinterest before I found this recipe for Salted Caramel Brownies that sounded divine, by the Smitten Kitchen. It’s a pretty straightforward recipe, I was only a bit scared of making the caramel as I heard it’s very easy to burn it but, thankfully I didn’t have any issues with it.
There are a lot of warnings in the recipe about the brownies being a bit messy, and that’s true. While we were waiting for them to cool, The Boy actually said that they looked like a gooey mess. But then we tried one and it was just so very good! Like, I can’t even describe how delicious they were. The brownies were incredibly soft and chocolate-y and then there were little pools of smooth, slightly salty caramel in every bite. I’m getting a craving for them as I write. So, I may not have a picture of them (a brown, gooey square is not very photogenic) but I highly recommend this recipe. In fact, I will be making it again soon to try and make them more presentable.
Then last week, I wanted to make something easy for dessert so I tried Joy the Baker’s Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding. (I suppose salty and sweet is my kind of flavour combination.) Apart from the whisking, these are very easy to make. I loved how the two flavour layers looked and they were very tasty. Joy suggests topping them with whipped cream but I thought they were sweet enough as they were, and also I’m lazy, so we just had them plain.
The last pin that I completed was this one for Chipotle Sweet Potato Chips by the Minimalist Kitchen. They were deliciously sweet and spicy and salty and they worked wonderfully with a simple vegetable soup for lunch on a cold, grey day.
P.S. Here are my previous adventures with Pin it and Do it.
