Method

  • Step 1

    Line a 20cm square, loose-based brownie/cake tin and set to one side. You can line with either parchment or cling film.

  • Step 2

    Place all ingredients into the BOWL in the order listed, then install the blade assembly. Select MIX, then press START/STOP. Twist anti-clockwise continuously while blending until the program is complete.

  • Step 3

    Carefully remove the blades and transfer the mixture to the cake tin. Press down with your hands into an even layer then level off with an offset spatula if you wish. Place into the freezer whilst you make the ganache.

  • Step 4

    Place all of the ganache ingredients into the 700ml Single-Serve Cup in the order listed. Secure the blades then place into the unit. Select BLEND. Once the programme has finished remove the tin from the freezer and pour over the ganache. Tap out any air bubbles then freeze for 1 hour.

  • Step 5

    Wash out the Single-Serve Cup then add all of the caramel ingredients in the order listed. Select BLEND. Once the programme has finished remove the tin from the freezer and pour over the ganache layer. Tap out any air bubbles then freeze for 3 hours until set. You can also sprinkle over any toppings before freezing if you wish.

  • Step 6

    Remove from the freezer and cut into 16 equal squares using a hot, damp knife, being sure to wipe the knife between cuts.

    Notes:

    For an extra decadent treat melt 100g-200g of dark chocolate and pour over the top. Set in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes before slicing.
