Caramel Brownie Tarts

Grab a drink in one hand and a pastry bag in the another, we are going to hit this Sandra Lee style. Objections? I don’t think so. Sometimes everyone needs a fancy semi-homemade treat. And if we are going to do it, lets do it with some ready-made brownie bites for the base, ready-made caramel for a filling and homemade brûlée meringue to finish.

Caramel Brownie Tarts

See—easy.  You can do this while sipping on something. Well, maybe between sips—might be safer with the torch and all.

Carmel Brownie Tarts

Yield: 1 dozen 1.5 tarts

Ingredients:

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 3/4  cups sugar
  • 1 dozen 1.5-inch brownie bites
  • 6 oz. caramel dip

Directions:

  1. Combine egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer bowl and place it over (not on) simmering water. Heat mixture to 160 degrees F while whisking constantly.
  2. Transfer mixer bowl to stand mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium high speed (speed 8 on a KitchenAid stand mixer) until mixture cools, doubles in volume and forms stiff peaks; about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag and pipe it along the perimeter of brownie. Torch meringue and fill center with caramel.

    I’m all about a partially pre-made dessert now and then. Sometimes the shortest past to a sugar rush is the best!

    So simple and yet still super impressive! That’s how you roll, isn’t it? Well, maybe not always simple, but the impressive part for sure :) Thanks for the torch advice!

    Is it weird that I use a gas lighter whenever I need to torch a dessert?

    I’m always up for semi-homemade… Especially when it looks as amazing as this! Also, just bought a torch from WE, but I had a gift card and it’d been on my list for a while. You’re right though. The regular propane torches are cheaper.

    Um, yes. Semi-home-made perfection here. You’re right, sometimes, that is what everyone needs. All I needed to hear was easy+brownie+caramel. I’m sold!
