Salted Caramel Swirled Brownies with Pistachios
Recipe Type: Baking, Chocolate, Dessert
Rich chocolate brownie batter is swirled with salted caramel and topped with crunchy green pistachios before baking. Beautiful and delicious.
  • 180 gr (1 cup) dark chocolate
  • 150 gr (2/3 cup) unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 gr (7/8 cup) sugar
  • 150 gr (1 + ΒΌ cup) ground almonds
  • Salt
  • 3 tbsp Dulce de Leche (see the link above for recipe)
  • 1 tbsp pistachios (unsalted and not roasted), chopped coarsely
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 356 F
  2. Put the chocolate and butter in a pan with a thick bottom
  3. Put on low heat on the stove, to let it melt without burning
  4. Once melted, take off the heat, and set aside to cool
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar
  6. Mix the egg-sugar mixture in with the now cooled melted butter and chocolate
  7. Now, add the ground almonds and a pinch of salt, and mix everything together
  8. Line a brownie tin with baking paper, and pour in the mixture
  9. Mix the dulce de leche with salt to your liking, and swirl over the brownie mixture (if the dulce the leche isn't fluid enough, mix it with a bit of water)
  10. Finally, sprinkle over the chopped pistachios
  11. Bake for 35 minutes, take it out of the oven and use a skewer to test if it's done (if the skewer comes out dry, it's done). And remember it will continue to cook a bit after you take them out of the oven.
  12. Cut into squares and enjoy!
