Chocolate fudge caramel brownies

Chocolate fudge caramel brownies that are easy to make, rich, chewy and simply amazing. You are going to love these!

Now I know I just posted healthy recipe ideas and the majority of the country is on a diet right now… but a lot of you on instagram requested this recipe after I posted a picture on Sunday. We always bake a treat on Sunday, it’s pretty much a family tradition. I also know a lot of you (like me) have been snowed in the past week, so baking up something yummy was about the only thing we could do to take our minds off being stuck inside. Our schools going on 5 “snow days.” Pretty crazy! With the black ice on the roads and temps -40, I TOTALLY get it but we were definitely going stir-crazy. Makes me miss the AZ sunshine. Sigh. These caramel brownies definitely warmed us all up though. We all loved them! Anything with the words chocolate and caramel I love. ;)

Caramel brownies on I Heart Nap Time

Chocolate fudge caramel brownies

Ingredients

  • Fudge brownie mix (+ ingredients the box calls for)
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (11oz) pkg caramel bits (or wrapped caramels)
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°. Line a 9x13 pan with foil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the fudge brownie mix + the ingredients that the box calls for. Then mix in 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk and the chocolate chips.
  3. Next, combine your caramels and 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk in a small pan over medium heat.
  4. While the caramel is warming up, pour half of the batter into the pan and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Stir the caramel mixture until smooth (about 10 min) and then pull out the brownie pan and drizzle the caramel over the bottom layer. Then pour the remaining brownie batter over top. Continue to bake the brownies for approximately 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean.
  6. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool. Then lift the foil and brownies out of the pan for easy cutting.
  7. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!

    I only have semi-sweet chocolate chips. Will that be okay? I can’t wait to make these! Thanks!

    Did not turn out looking like yours. The pan I feel should be smaller so you can actually get a full layer over caramels. Will make again and put in a 9″ square. Also stuck to tin foil.Help!

      Hi Barbara! You can definitely try a 9″ to make them thicker, I used a 9×13 and it covered mine! I’m sorry that they stuck to the foil…mine have always come right off. Maybe try spraying nonstick spray on top of the foil next time! :)

    I’m wondering if using a jar of Mrs. Richardson’s caramel would work? I haven’t any caramel squares on hand. How well set does your caramel get?

    • Jamielyn replied on March 12th, 2014 at 6:52 pm

      I’m not sure Kristi, I’ve never tried it with a jar of caramel. I am guessing that it probably won’t be as thick and it might run out the sides. My caramel sets pretty well, it is still chewy though! :)

        Well I had given it a try. I had added a few tbsp on flour to it (I do this with another bar recipe I make) to help thicken it. However, after baking the bottom part for the time stated, when I added the caramel it sunk completely to the bottom of the pan since the brownies hadn’t even really thickened/baked. So I’m thinking that sticking to the squares would be a better idea. :)

    Will these freeze well?

      Hi Karen! I have never tried freezing them, they are always gone too fast. :) But they should freeze just fine. Be sure to put them in an airtight container!
