Best Caramel Brownies Recipe: The Ultimate Caramel Brownie Recipe for When You Want a Serious Sugar Rush

When I worked at NBC, our group had an administrative assistant, Roberta, that was like our second mother. Among her many talents were her baking skills. She was the BEST baker! One of my favorite treats she would make for us were her amazing caramel brownies. They were an incredible dessert, or for when we just needed a chocolate fix. 

I was ecstatic when I rediscovered her delicious brownie recipe. Now you, too, can enjoy Roberta's ultimate caramel brownies. They're for when you want a serious sugar rush, and I dare you to eat just one!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 45 minutes

Servings: 12


  • 1 bag (11 ounces) Kraft Caramels
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk (1 small 5-ounce can)
  • 1 package Devil's Food Cake Mix (or any chocolate flavor cake or brownie mix you like)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package (12 ounces) mini chocolate chips

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Melt caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk gently over low heat, or microwave for 3 minutes, stirring after every minute. (First minute you cannot really stir, but after the second minute they do start to melt).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13x9-inch pan. (I actually used a nonstick aluminum foil and they come out of the pan easier.)
  3. In large bowl, combine cake/brownie mix, remaining 1/3 cup of the evaporated milk and butter until blended. The batter will be stiff but you can get it blended. Press 2/3 of resulting cake/brownie mixture in bottom of pan. Bake for 6 minutes.
  4. After removing baked cake/brownie mixture from oven, pour melted caramel mixture over it evenly. Cover with chocolate chips. Crumble remaining cake/brownie mixture on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool well before cutting.
