Conjured Mana Brownie - World of Warcraft

This is a recipe where I wish I had a scratch and sniff blog. My kitchen smelled so wonderful with the brownie and the caramel aromas intermingling. 

I used a brownie mix for this recipe but if you are anti-mix  or just want to make them from scratch. here is a great brownie recipe I use all the time.
To make the Salted Caramel Sauce, you will need:
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon fine sea salt 

 If you are like me and never have heavy cream, here is how to make it.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Combine slowly, whisk.
If the butter clumps in the milk. Don't fret, just microwave it for 5 or 10 seconds.
It will melt again and combine properly.

 Ta-da! Heavy cream!
 Now back to the caramel glaze.
Add the sugar to a pan.
Add the water.
 Bring to a boil. It will look like the above photo. It is OK if it bubbles.
 You will stare at the bubbling sugar for about 10 minutes. Stir frequently.
When it browns into a light amber color, remove from heat.
 Add butter and stir.
Slowly add heavy cream. It will foam up, don't be alarmed.
Add salt.
Put aside to let it sit and cool.
 Remove the brownie from the pan and slice in to servings.
Spoon sauce over brownie. Serve.
