These unpretentious little brownies took a luxurious trip to the dark side with caramel sauce (sinful). I’ve made countless Brownies since I’ve become Vegan – fudgy ones, cake-like brownies and even tried various recipes online in the past…you name it. This brownie was just another one of my creations to add to the brownie collection. More people really should bake in my opinion. Brownies, Cookies and Cake are pretty much the easiest thing to make. Mix a few ingredients together and 10, 15, 20 minutes later you have dessert! These brownies came out light and crumbly, they were not considerably sweet either. However, the caramel sauce is sweet and provided that perfect balance for the brownie in this recipe. I kicked the brownies up another level by sprinkling course sea salt on top…oh my! Oh wait, what is this…another level of guilt? Of course, so I added Ice cream to boot. I used So Delicious Vanilla Ice cream.
Tip: Warm the brownie…Cold Ice cream on a warm brownie with Caramel sauce Mmm. All this equals = Divinity plus a few mouthgasms. I’ll quote my husband after his first bite “Oh my goodness…Oh my goodness…you need to go to confession after that!” 🙂
Your taste buds will dance and salivary glands will certainly be stimulated to the point of climax at least with the trifecta anyway. Enjoy! 🙂
