Caramel brownies recipes

caramel brownies Sorry about the overdose of so many cakes and other bakes. But I had so many of them unposted, so thought of doing it subsequently. I will then be posting some delicious spicy recipes too. So bear with me for sometime!!!But this brownie was really good and was quite eager to post this since the day I made it, but it could not make its way due to other posts for different (food blog)events.
I got this recipe from sanjeev kapoor's sweets and desserts. I loved the recipe and tried it immediately. It was really good. I modified it a little by adding cocoa powder as I did not have baking chocolate as required in the original recipe. But I dont think it would have created a major difference to the taste.
I just saw Aquadaze hosting a event called "Lets go nuts" and she has asked us to send food with walnuts and pecans. As this brownie contains walnuts, I would like to send it for her event if she accepts it(as am not sure whether the entry should contain pecan nuts too).

Ingredients-
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Fat/oil- to grease
Walnut kernels-1/2 cup
Cocoa powder- 3tbsp
Butter- 8 tbsp
Eggs-4
Vanilla essence- 2/3 drops
Powdered sugar-1 cup
All purpose flour- 1 cup
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Chocolate chips- 1/2 cup

Method-
Preheat oven to 180c. Grease a baking sheet with oil/fat. Crush walnuts a little. Combine sugar granules with 2tablespoons of water in a pan and bring it to a boil. Cook stirring all the time until mixture is deep caramel in colour. Set it aside and keep it warm on a pan of hot water.
Now combine powdered sugar and butter and beat it till creamy. Beat eggs with vanilla essence till frothy and add it to the sugar and butter mixture. No mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add it to the above wet ingredients folding it lightly and carefully without losing much aeration.
Spread half of the batter in a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 6 minutes at 180c. Remove from oven and spread the caramel carefully over the baked layer.Sprinkle choco chips. Stir in the walnuts in the remaining batter and spread over the caramel layer .
Bake for 20 minutes at 180c. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. Refigerate before cutting into squares.
