A word of caution… these are decadent. So decadent that you’ll have a hard time putting them away after a few bites. Full disclosure: I take no responsibility if you wind up in front of the TV with a pan of Caramel Brownies and a spoon while watching a marathon of the Real Housewives of wherever. It’s been known to happen so I’m just giving you a heads up. Self control + Caramel Brownies… it’s just not possible.

  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. Hey girlie! Lots of excitement going on over here. I bet you are SUPER glad graduation is over 🙂 These look melty and heavenly

  4. That brownie there needs a big 'ol scoop of vanilla ice cream!! And then some more caramel drizzled on top 🙂

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

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

  6. Delicious! These look so wonderful! I might need to avoid sugar for two weeks too, to be able to eat these 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 5 stars
    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!

  10. In your list of ingredients, you call for 3/4 cup evaporated milk, but in the listed steps, only use 1/2 cup. What’s up?

    1. 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

  11. i didn’t have any evaporated milk so used regular milk and I wanted to get them done quick so I added the caramel in with the batter and when they were done they were amazing I didnt have much caramel someone ate half my bag of caramel bites so I just used them up. 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

  12. 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!)
