From scratch: Salted caramel brownies

Before I continue with my Cebu escapade, I thought I’d interrupt with another one of my ‘from scratch’ posts. Miss my chocolate recipes? Good, because you’re going to love this one.

Wow, I have not been doing right by you. I feel like I’ve been letting you guys down, not updating my blog more often (and soon enough), so I’m glad to buckle down and do this now. I’d like to start with a bit of honesty: I made these waffles a while back, so it really should have been up months ago. So now that that’s out of the way…
