Chocolate Caramel Brownies Recipe

If you have read this blog for a bit you know I frequently make brownies, I personally like eating the batter( I know it's bad for you) and then I give the Brownies to family, friends and co-workers. This is a recipe that I found on Pinterest,  there are several out there to include one that is made from scratch and another that uses a baking mix.

Because I was pressed for time I used a mix, and everyone that ate these loved them. The recipe could not get any easier.

Caramel Chocolate Brownies
Adapted from Annie's Eats


1 Box dark chocolate brownie mix
1 14 oz bag of caramels
1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
cup of chocolate chips.


Spray 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Heat oven to 350. Make brownies according to directions on reverse of box. Place half of brownie mixture into pan, bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 20 minutes. In meantime over low heat, place unwrapped caramels and 1/4 cup of whipping cream. Stir until melted. Pour caramels over the cooled brownies. Pour remainder of brownie mix over the caramel. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool completely and then cut.

In many of the photos on Pinterest as well as Annie's Eats, the caramel is oozing out of the brownies. I did not have that experience. Also, several people mentioned that these brownies were very fudgy, almost raw, again not for me but then again I baked mine longer.

I hope you enjoy and have a great day!!
