Caramel Brownies

I haven’t eaten any sugar in about 2 weeks. (well, except for those few pieces of dark chocolate but those don’t count) I know. It’s a sin. I don’t know what the heck is wrong with me. But not to worry – I remedied this problem a few days ago when I made these sinful Caramel Brownies. Holy cow. They totally changed my life.

Let me preface this recipe by saying these brownies are not for the faint hearted. They are decadent.

They will make your mouth water and any self control that you think you have – well it might just fly out the window when you crack into the brownie pan!

Go make these now. You can thank me later. Just go for it. And enjoy. And eat them straight out of the pan with a spoon – because they are better that way!

Caramel Brownies

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste or 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 10 oz caramels
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk


  1. In a small pot combine the peeled caramels and evaporated milk. Heat over medium heat and stir until all caramels are melted.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and line a 9x9 baking tin with parchment.
  3. In a pot over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar, cocoa power and salt and mix for 2 minutes. Add the vanilla paste and eggs and combine. Stir in the flour and set aside.
  4. Pour half of the batter into the prepare pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven, pour the caramel mixture over the brownies. If the brownie batter gets mixed in - no need to worry! Top the caramel mixture with the chocolate chips and the remaining brownie batter. Just scoop the brownie batter over the caramel with a spoon. Finish baking for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool for about 90 minutes before slicing into these brownies.
  6. Note - these are best eaten with a spoon directly out of the pan - just sayin

  1. Gaby, you have to stop making all these mouth watering desserts! I'm gaining weight just reading your posts!! They look wonderful.

  2. These look to be finger-licking good!! I have an after tennis match get together and am designated to bring a snack. I think these would be perfect – so I am off to the market with my basket to pick up some ingredients. I can always count on you for some great ideas.

  3. Ooooo, I want brownies oozing ooey gooey caramel!! Yes, I'm missing out.

    Btw, I'll be back to continue checking out your archives!

  4. These look incredible. I love brownies that are rich and moist, and your caramel ones would certainly fit the bill. I’m imagining how great these would be with a sprinkling of sea salt on top.

  5. There is no sweet I enjoy in this world more than caramel brownies! This recipe looks absolutely ah-maaaazing and I am very excited to make them and eat the whole pan with a spoon, while watching some trashy reality TV!

  6. I made this for father’s day (a while ago) and HOLY COW it was soooo good! Usually, every person in my family has different tastes when it comes to desserts, but this was looooooved by everyone. It may be in my top recipes!

    • Thanks for catching the Jane!! The ingredients should just call for 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and that gets combined with the caramels! Thanks so much

I wanted to get them done so I could make my tie dye cake for my dads birthday I though id surprise him with brownies and a cake. thanks for the recipe its one the first that I found using the cocoa powder

  10. WOW. These brownies are beyond amazing. (and I’ve tried a lot of brownies!) These brownies got me through the worst day of work and a mega-stressful night of wedding planning. Thank you Gaby!
    (these brownies are super sweet and mega-caramel flavoured so if you’re not into that, you won’t like them. If you are into that-then these brownies will make you smile!)
