This incredible dedication to connecting with these children will change their lives forever and create ever lasting memories.
BAKE BACK AMERICA
Bake Back America & Camp Pontiac Summer of Giving Back with Ossining Children's Center
LET THIS SUMMER BEGIN
⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
¾ cup chocolate chips, I prefer milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate
3 large eggs
½ cup vegetable or canola oil
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
25 unwrapped caramel candies
2 tablespoons heavy cream or half & half
6 unwrapped caramel candies
1 tablespoon heavy cream or half & half
flaky sea salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8 square pan* with foil or parchment paper, leaving a couple of inches of overhang on two sides (this will allow you to lift the whole tray of brownies out of the pan for easy removal). Lightly grease the foil/parchment.
In a large bowl combine cocoa powder, sugar, salt, flour, espresso powder, and chocolate chips. Whisk until combined. Add eggs, oil, water, and vanilla and stir with a rubber spatula until combined (it will be fairly thick).
Scoop half of the batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer.
Place 25 unwrapped caramels and 2 tablespoons cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in 20-30 second increments, stirring occasionally until the caramels are melted and completely smooth. Pour the caramel sauce evenly over the brownie batter in the pan.
Add the remaining brownie batter on top of the caramel. I drop spoonfuls of batter all around the pan, then carefully press/spread it into an even layer.
Bake for 35-42 minutes, until the brownies are baked through, but still fudgy. Be careful not to over-bake. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool for 30 minutes before proceeding with the topping.
