Amazingly Delicious Caramilk Brownies

CARAMILK IS BACK! Yes, that’s right. Caramilk is back and New Zealand has gone crazy. It took me a few tries to actually manage to find some on the shelves, but when I finally found it I knew exactly what I needed to do with it… BROWNIES OF COURSE!


Last time we had Caramilk, it definitely didn’t stick around long enough to bake with. But this time around I made sure I had a block specifically for trying out this recipe. These brownies are so amazingly delicious, no one in our house has been able to stop at just one! Pair a slice (or two) with a cup of coffee and you have the perfect treat to indulge in while you kick back with your feet up.

To make the brownies extra special, I used Pepper & Me Bakers Grind in the recipe. I am a massive fan of all Pepper & Me products, but I particularly love the Bakers Grind! It goes well in any recipe, but it is a match made in heaven with the Caramilk!

Pepper & Me and Caramilk

But if you don’t have Bakers Grind, worry not! It will still be delicious with another baking spice, or none at all! It’s all up to you. However you choose to make these, I can guarantee they will be amazing!

Oh and I almost forgot to mention a little bakers bonus… this recipe calls for 3/4 cup of Caramilk Chocolate, which is not quite a whole bar… this leaves the baker a few sneaky squares to snack on during the preparation. You’re welcome! So what are yous still doing here… start baking!



  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 Egg, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup Flour, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Caramilk Chocolate, chopped
  • OPTIONAL* – 1 tsp Pepper & Me Bakers Grind, or any other baking spice you choose


  1. Preheat over to 180º C
  2. Line a square baking pan with foil, and grease with butter or cooking oil
  3. Mix together melted Butter and Sugar
  4. Make sure mixture has cooled, then mix in Egg and Vanilla
  5. Fold in sifted Flour, Salt and Bakers Grind*
  6. Add chopped Caramilk Chocolate and mix till evenly through the batter
  7. Pour batter into baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, until top is golden and sides start to pull away from the pan
  8. Let the brownie completely cool before slicing and serving

    What does baker’s grind taste like? I’ve never heard of that before? These brownies look amazing!

      It’s delicious! It’s a mix of cardamon, star anise, cinnamon, vanilla bean, rock salt and rock sugar, and you grind it up like you would salt. It honestly gives all my baking a next level flavor!

      And thank you! I had so much fun creating the recipe… and eating the finished product too of course.
