For the brownies

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80g flour, sifted

  2. Preheat the oven to 170 C/Gas mark 3. Grease and line a 23 x 23cm brownie pan with baking parchment.
  3. To make the brownies, melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool for a couple of minutes. Add the eggs, along with the sugars, salt and vanilla. Fold in the flour.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Drizzle half to two thirds of the caramel over the top and use a skewer to swirl it around. Sprinkle with cocoa nibs. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until set on top but slightly wobby in the middle still. Leave to cool completely in the tin then cut into squares.
