Ingredients

For the brownie base

  • 130 grams Plain flour All Purpose, (1 cup + 2 tablespoons)
  • 40 grams good quality cocoa powder (3/8 cup)
  • 100 grams light brown sugar (1/2 cup lightly packed)
  • 125 grams granulated sugar (1/2 cup + 1 and 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 160 millilitres vegetable oil (2/3'rds cup)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 160 grams salted peanuts (1 cup)
  • 30 grams mini marshmallows (1/2 cup)

For the topping

  • 210 grams salted caramel sauce (3/4 cup)
  • 40 grams salted peanuts - crushed (1/4 cup)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F / Gas mark 4 and lightly grease and line a 9 inch square pan with baking parchment and place to one side.
  • In a large mixing bowl add in the flour, cocoa and both sugars. Give them a gentle whisk to combine them together.
  • Pour in the vanilla extract, vegetable oil and all the eggs. Mix everything together until you have a thick glossy batter.
  • Add in the salted peanuts and mini marshmallows and mix till evenly distributed.
  • Pour the batter into your prepare tin and pop it in the middle of your oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Like most brownies the edges will be firmer than the middle when they are ready to come out of the oven.
  • Leave them in the tin too fully cool down.
  • If you keep your salted caramel in the fridge, then take it out an hour before needing it so it is easier to spread. As I mentioned above it doesn't matter if you use homemade or shop bought salted caramel sauce.
  • Once the brownie is cooled to room temperature lift it out of the pan and peel off any parchment paper still attached and place the brownie on a flat serving plate.
  • Gently spread your caramel sauce all over the top of your brownie taking it right to the edges. Place your peanuts in a small zip lock bag and give your peanuts a little bash breaking them up. Then sprinkle all over the top of your brownie. Cut up into 15 squares and serve.
  • Kept in an airtight tin these brownies will keep for up to 5 days.
