Caramel Center:

  • 11 ounces Kraft caramels
  • ⅓ cup evaporated milk


  • 18 ounces brownie mix
  • 1 to 2 eggs (as directed on the brownie package)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Prepare the Oven and Pan:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Caramel:
    • In a small saucepan, melt the caramels with the evaporated milk over medium heat, stirring constantly until smooth, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Mix the Brownie Batter:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water according to the package instructions.
  4. Layer the Brownie and Caramel:
    • Spread two-thirds of the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish.
    • Drop the caramel mixture in dollops over the brownie layer.
    • Top with the remaining brownie batter, dropping it in dollops to cover the caramel.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the hot brownies.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into squares.


  • Oven Accuracy: Ensure your oven is accurately calibrated for the best baking results.
  • Flavor Enhancements: Consider adding chopped nuts or a sprinkle of sea salt to the caramel layer for added texture and a balance of flavors.
  • Storage: Store the brownies in an airtight container at room temperature to maintain freshness.
