Those of you who follow me on Instagram would have noticed some really fun photos from Boston last week. I was very lucky to have been chosen to go on a trip to visit Boston and learn more about American Heritage Chocolate. I will have a post up next week sharing more about what I did while I was there but I wanted to share this delicious Salted Caramel Brownie Recipe that uses American Heritage Chocolate with you today.

Salted Caramel Brownie Recipe – Gluten Free
American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products—based on a recipe from the 1750s. I love it because it’s all natural and contains no preservatives. The American Heritage Chocolate Chocolate Block can be substituted ounce for ounce in any recipe that calls for semi-sweet chocolate. In this recipe, I used the American Heritage Chocolate Finely Grated Chocolate Drink instead of cocoa powder as an exact substitution. I used a gluten-free flour blend so everyone in the house could enjoy it.

- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup American Heritage Chocolate Finely Grated Chocolate Drink
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup gluten free flour, baking blend
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp xantham gum
- 1 chopped American Heritage Chocolate Stick
- Salted caramel:
- 1 cup of sugar
- 6 tbsp butter, room temperature, cut in tbsp
- 1/2 cup heavy cream, room temperature
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Make the caramel:
- In a medium pan, heat the sugar on medium high for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. It will be lumpy in the beginning but will melt and turn brown.
- Once it's completely melted and darkens, remove from the heat and add the butter. Don't freak out, it's going to sizzle and bubble when you add the butter.
- Stir 1-2 minutes until completely melted.
- Put back on stove and add the heavy cream and the sea salt, stirring constantly until blended.
- Cool for 15 minutes.
- Make the brownies:
- While the caramel cools, preheat the oven to 350F. Line 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.
- Place the sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt in a bowl and mix.
- Melt the butter and add it to the bowl. Stir until blended.
- Add the American Heritage Chocolate Finely Grated Chocolate Drink, flour blend and xantham gum. Stir until blended.
- Add the chopped American Heritage Chocolate Stick
- Pour half of the brownie mix in the lined pan.
- Pour 3/4 cup of caramel over the brownies but not quite to the edge. It will spread.
- Pour the rest of the brownie mix over the caramel and spread over the caramel. You won't be able to cover it completely but do your best.
- Bake 40 minutes or until a knife tested in the middle comes out clean.
- Cool completely & cut.
You will have caramel left over so feel free to pour it over your brownie, add a bit more sea salt to the top and enjoy!
