The wonderful people at Werther's Original was kind enough to send me a huge party kit full of free Werther's Original Baking Caramels to host a Werther's Original Baking Bash MommyParty!
I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. I have a love of Caramels that dates back to childhood, and to think, I am sitting here with a box full of my favorite treat!
I'm about to create some caramel based masterpieces people.
I started off by baking up a rich batch of brownies in a springform pan. I used this pan because I didn't want any rough edges on my brownies and also for the cake like appearance.
Don't forget to spray the pan with cooking spray before baking up the brownies.
After the brownies cooled completely. I took some softened vanilla ice cream and packed it in tightly on top the brownies. I am using the pan as a mold to hold all this goodness!
Next, cover the pan with saran wrap, pressing the saran wrap on top of the ice cream. Freeze the brownie/ice cream cake for a couple of hours to harden.
While the cake hardened, I prepared my caramel. Place the unwrapped baking caramels in a microwave proof bowl, add a little evaporated milk and in 2 minutes, you have creamy caramel.
Note: it's very important that you place the hot caramel on the bottom of the plate. Then put the brownie on top. What happens is the hot caramel, heats the brownie up and magic takes place.
You have bites of hot caramel, warm brownie and frozen ice cream. It's a party people...each and every bite...is pure joy!
