A Sweet Little Recipe: Caramel Walnut Brownies {#BKCreamery}

caramel walnut brownie recipe

I recently shared with you guys that I’d be testing out a new product from Brooklyn Creamery. I trekked out to the ‘burbs to watch a product demo, gorge on free samples, and procure my own my stash. Well folks, the final verdict is in: Extra Thick Double Cream absolutely rocks!

In general, I try to keep my sweet tooth at bay. However, if I had to name my personal vice, it would definitely be salted caramel… and chocolate chip cookies… oh, and warm apple pie! But I digress…

I decided the perfect way to put Brooklyn Creamery’s Double Cream to the test would be to make a good old fashion caramel sauce. But what good is a batch of warm, sticky, ooey-gooey deliciousness without a rich decadent chocolate brownie to go with it? Amiright? Of course, I am!

Here goes the full recipe. Let me know what you think in the comments.



  • 4 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 5 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 egg yolks
  • kosher salt
  • pinch of maldon salt (optional)

Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Extra Thick Double Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Roughly chop walnuts
  3. Grease insides of 4 ramekins, and set aside.
  4. Separate egg yolks, and set aside 4 tablespoons chocolate chips for stirring in whole.
  5. Melt 8 tablespoons of butter in a large microwavesafe bowl for about 30 seconds, or in a small pot over medium heat. Add remaining chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  6. Add espresso, sugar, vanilla extract, and egg yolks. Stir to combine well.
  7. In a separate medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
  8. Add chocolate mixture to bowl with flour mixture and stir just to combine and flour is no longer visible.
  9. Gently stir in walnuts and reserved 4 tablespoons chocolate chips.
  10. Divide batter evenly between ramekins. Place on a baking sheet and bake until set, about 20 minutes. Begin making caramel sauce while brownies bake in the oven.
  11. Add sugar to a small sauce pan and cook over medium-high heat until melted.
  12. Once sugar reaches a deep brown color, add all the butter and stir until completely melted.
  13. Add vanilla and double cream, and whisk until you have a consistent sauce.
  14. Stir in salt, and set aside to cool.
  15. Remove brownies from oven and allow to cool slightly, about 3 minutes.
  16. Carefully invert ramekins onto plates to remove brownies, and immediately sprinkle over caramel sauce and Maldon salt. Serve warm.

I made these the other day, and they disappeared immediately. The brownies have a unique light, slightly crumbly texture and pair so well with the caramel sauce. You can also store any remaining sauce in the fridge for up to two weeks (though I doubt it will last that long!) and serve it over icecream, pancakes, or waffles… YUM!

    Wow delicious! I used to live in London and I had double cream all the time; it’s about time they started making it here.

    Wow that brownie looks so good! Love your pictures! I usually add more salt to my caramel sauce, I like that salty bite cutting through the sweetness of the sugar and double cream.

      Thanks! I love salted caramel as well! 🙂 But since I sprinkled a bit of maldon salt on top of the brownies, I didn’t want to overdo it with the sauce this time around.
