Easy Caramel Brownies

Caramel Brownies 1



Did you ever see a recipe somewhere and think,”Well , duh..why didn’t I think of that”?
Yep, that is this recipe. My friend Lori over at Recipe Girl posted it and I just slapped my forehead.
I usually only post my original recipes here on my site, but I just had to  make and share this one!

No making caramel! You see, I have a love hate relationship with making caramel. I ALWAYS burn my first batch….always..without fail. So the fact that I don’t have to make my own caramel makes this recipe 5 star in my book!

It starts with some glorious Dove Chocolate caramel candies.

Caramel Brownies


Spread half your batter ( not a family size box) into a 9 x 9 pan.

Arrange the unwrapped Dove Chocolates over the batter (look away OCD friends, the Doves are not all facing the same way)

Add the remaining batter onto.

Por the remaining batter

For the original printable recipe..head on over to Lori

Oh and if you plan on using a family size brownie mix in a 9 x 13 pan, just use two packages of Dove candies.

    I have a love/hate relationship with making caramel too! But I think I’d have a love love relationship with these brownies! Leave it to Recipe Girl to come up with something like this! And your recreation looks absolutely amazing!

    Holy crap. I need these in my life STAT. Counting calories will have to wait.

  5. 5

    I’ve done this with peppermint patties and chocolate chips but don’t know why I haven’t experimented with different chocolate candies!

  6. 6

    I cannot believed you pointed out that all the candies were not facing the same way. What do I do now? I’ll have to use your picture as an example. ;^D BTW, Dove candies ROCK. Love the dark chocolate especially–in the purple wrappers.

    Definitely a great brownie–I’ve done the same thing before. Now I want to do it again. 😉

    I made these last night for a family get-together, and lord have mercy! They were probably the best brownies I have ever eaten. Folks, they’re just as incredible as you imagine they might be! 🙂 I used a Ghirardelli brownie mix.

  12. 13

    I want this now, yum, why didn’t I think of caramels?! I’ve done the same thing with a Ghiradelli mix and 2 of the King Size Symphony Toffee Almond Candy Bars. Hide them or you’ll eat 1/2 the pan at once!


  1. […] why? Anyway, I might have been able to forget about my favorite little bars except yesterday, Leslie reminded me of a recipe Lori made a while back. Darn you Leslie!! Once I saw it, the wheels started […]
