Update: brownie sale!
At one point in the past, I had made a box of brownies for a friend of mine. He and his parents LOVED them. Upon hearing that I was making baked goods for charity, his mother requested another box. She offered to pay 10$ as she really enjoys giving to a good cause. 10$! That’s quite a bit! Anyway, I made said brownies and their family enjoyed them greatly. I wasn’t able to take a decent picture of the brownies themselves, so I am including a picture and a link from the original recipe which I found on a blog called Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. All of her recipes are fantastic!

This recipe was a great find for me as I had always struggled with adding caramel to brownies. The secret is to use Wilky Way Simply Caramel candy bars or any other caramel filled candy and sandwich it in between two layers of brownie. This recipe calls for two boxes of brownie mix. I have tried it with brownie mix and homemade brownie batter and both work just fine. The brownie mix is a bit easier as it pours and spreads much better than brownie batter which is thick and more like dough.
Ingredients with brownie mix:
- 2 boxes Duncan Hines fudge brownie mix or another similar kind
- I large bag or 2 smaller bags of caramel filled chocolate candy
Mix one box of brownie mix according to directions. Pour into a 9×13 inch pan and bake for 20 minutes. While baking, unwrap all of the candy. Take the brownies out of the oven and place the candy in a spaced out in a single layer on top. Bake for five minutes. Take out of the oven and smoosh the candy down to create a solid layer of caramel and chocolate. Mix the second box of brownie mix and pour on top. Bake for another 35 to 45 minutes until fully cooked.
In order to replace the brownie mix with homemade batter, just substitute a double recipe of your favorite brownies! Make one recipe and press the batter into the pan and cook for 15-20 minutes until slightly baked, and follow the same instructions above. Press the second recipe of the batter on top and bake until fully cooked.
I will post a recipe for my favorite homemade brownies sometime soon!
