Chocolate Caramel Layered Brownies with a Salty Twist


  • 1 box chewy fudge brownie mix
  • 1 bag (11 oz) caramel bits
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Sea salt (optional, for a salted caramel version)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.
  2. Prepare Brownie Mix:
    • Follow the instructions on the brownie mix box to prepare the brownie batter.
  3. Layer the Brownie Mix:
    • Pour half of the brownie batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly to cover the bottom.
  4. Prepare Caramel Layer:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramel bits and water. Microwave in short intervals, stirring in between, until the caramel is completely melted and smooth.
  5. Add Caramel Layer:
    • Pour the melted caramel over the layer of brownie batter in the pan.
  6. Top with Remaining Brownie Batter:
    • Pour the remaining brownie batter over the caramel layer. Do not mix; let the layers form naturally.
  7. Optional Sea Salt Addition:
    • For a salted caramel twist, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt evenly over the top of the brownie batter.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The caramel layer might make the toothpick a little sticky, so be sure to check for brownie crumbs.
  9. Cooling:
    • Allow the brownies to cool in the pan on a wire rack. This helps the layers set.
  10. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once cooled, cut the brownies into squares and serve. The combination of rich chocolate, gooey caramel, and, if added, the hint of sea salt creates a delightful treat.

Optional Serving Suggestion:

  • Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent dessert experience.

These Chocolate Caramel Layered Brownies with a Salty Twist are sure to be a hit, especially for those who love chocolate and caramel desserts. Enjoy!
