Twix Caramel Brownies

Jump to Recipe

Last week we hosted a barbeque for our good family friends. I couldn’t decide what dessert to make, so I made three:) I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone to enjoy, plus, you all know I love an excuse to bake:) I decided to make brownies, because brownies are always a hit at parties. I didn’t want to make plain chocolate brownies so I jazzed them up with Twix candy bars and caramel. I think that was the best decision I have made in a long time! These Twix Caramel Brownies take brownies to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Josh and I both love Twix candy bars. Crispy crunchy cookie, smooth creamy chocolate, and chewy caramel-what’s not to love? We don’t buy or eat candy bars very often, but I had to splurge for these brownies. I chopped up the candy bars into chunks. It was hard not to eat them right then and there, but I knew the brownies would be worth the wait:)

I stirred the Twix candy bar chunks into the rich, chocolaty brownie batter. Again, I wanted to just eat the brownie batter and Twix chunks with a big spoon, but I refrained. It sure was hard though!

I poured the batter into the pan and drizzled caramel sauceΒ evenly over the brownies. If you want, you can use my homemade salted caramel sauce. It is SO good!

Next, I took a toothpick and swirled the caramel into the brownie batter. The brownies baked for about 40 minutes and that was the longest 40 minutes of my life. I love the smell of brownies baking and my chocolate craving was through the roof at this point. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of these decadent brownies.

After I impatiently let the brownies cool, I cut them into squares and placed them on a platter for the barbeque. I was going to wait until the guests arrived to try one, but temptation got the best of me. I grabbed a brownie from the platter and enjoyed every single bite. The brownies are divine. The Twix candy bar chunks add a pleasant crunch to the fudgy brownies and the caramel creates tunnels of sweet, ooey, gooey, goodness. The brownies are very rich so I was satisfied with just one…for awhile. I had to have another one at the party. I didn’t want our guests to think the brownies were unsafe to eat. I had to set a good example:)

If you are looking for a simple and fun way to jazz up the traditional brownie, try this Twix Caramel Brownie recipe.

  1. I’m right there with you, baking time is always the hardest to get through when you’re forced to smell whatever you’re making! But the wait is always worth it in the end πŸ™‚

    I’m a Twix fanatic, too. I don’t eat candy bars often but you can’t pass up a Twix. Great recipe!

  2. Twix are my very favorite candy bar! I don’t buy them much because I have no self control around them. These brownies would be extra dangerous to have around πŸ™‚

  3. Twix are Abe’s favorite! I will for sure be making these πŸ™‚ MIss you! I will be calling you soon to catch up!

  4. Seriously, your Josh and my Josh….they could be food twinkies! Josh loves twix! In fact, as a special treat I bought him a frozen twix ice cream bar this week! The brownies look divine! I’m sure your guests just loved them

  5. Oh my sweet goodness. Two of my favorite things in one. Twix bars are being added to my shopping list so I can make this soon.

  6. All I can say is that it’s a good thing I did not read this post while my teenagers were home. One look and I’d be forced to drop everything and make these….
    Now at least I can do it on my schedule since they do look, sound and I am sure are fabulous!!!

  7. holy smokes !! i love caramel, actually the word LOVE isn’t even enough to express how much i really really really really really feel. i wish i could just reach into the screen and grab one!

  8. Twix = my favouuurrittee choccy bar (i admit i have a lot of favourites, but twix have held their place in my affection the longest!) so these brownies look like a dream come true! Gorgeous recipe, got me craving something silly πŸ™‚

  9. Twix are one of the few candy bars I will pick out of my kids’ Halloween baskets – I love them! What a great idea to make brownies with them – these would be dangerous for me.

  10. TWIX IS MY FAVE!!!! THIS LOOKS DEADLY SINFUL I DONT EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT THE CALORIES BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD TOTALLY MAKE ONE OF THESE YUM!

  11. Made these tonight and they are SOOOO rich and divine. But mine seemed to just fall apart and there was NO way to keep them in a nice bar form, even after totally cooled. I ended up with a sort of pile of brownie hunks instead of bars. Any advice on this? Maybe I used too much caramel sauce (I didn’t exactly measure 1/3 c. I just poured it on!) or something?

  12. Cannot wait to try these, look wonderful. I’ve recently found your blog and you have tons of great recipes. Just wondering for these brownies, did you use sweetened or unsweetened cocoa or does it really matter?

    Thanks!

  13. Hey quick question…I made these brownies tonight, and I’ve also made your zucchini brownies…which tasted fantastic. My question is that I can’t seem to make really fudgey/chewy brownies. I follow the directions exactly, but they come out more like cake than brownies. What am I doing wrong?

  14. Just made these today. WOW! Just the brownie recipe by itself is a solidly delicious one bowl brownie, but the addition of candy bars and ice cream topping sends it wildly over the top. I baked them as is this time, but I’m already imagining the myriad of possibilities for the future: Jr. Mints and marshmallow topping, Heath Bars and caramel, I could go on and on . . . .
    Thanks for this great recipe and I love your site.

  15. These look amazing! Although, I’m just curious, what kind of cocoa powder did you use? Dutch processed, unsweetened? I can’t wait to try them:)

  16. I’m using a glass pan for these brownies, and they look great, but I just want to warn people that are going to bake them that you should probably expect to extend the baking time about 10 – 15 minutes. πŸ™‚
    BTW – They smell GREAT!:)

  17. I made these this weekend for hubby’s b-day party…….they were a HIT!! They were easy to make and oh so yummy!! But I hafta say……yours are a lot prettier than mine!! My brownies looked “marbled” with the caramel……but I see yours don’t have that appearance. (Does that make sense?) Anyway……they were yummy and I guess I’ll just HAVE to make these again to see if I can get mine to look like yours!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

  18. Bookmarked and can’t wait to try out the recipe tomorrow! Question though; would it matter if the butter’s melted by double boiling or it’d be better if melted? Cheers!

  19. I just made these and they’re fantastic! I didn’t have any caramel so I added chocolate chips to keep up the indulgence level. They baked up wonderfully (with a gorgeous smooth and craggy top, if that’s possible). After a bad day, I needed a perfect recipe…thank you so much!!!

  20. I can’t tell from the pictures, but what type of pan did you use when you made these–glass or nonstick? Just curious, because I have glass pans and sometimes the bake time varies. I tried making these before, but the top didn’t come out nice and flaky like yours did:(
    They were still DELICIOUS though!:)

  21. I made these tonight. THEY. ARE. AMAZING!! I have followed you for the past few years and have yet to be disappointed by anything I’ve made of yours. I tell others about your site all the time. thanks for being so good at what you do.

  22. Ok first… Holy snot that looks perfect!
    Second, I love that you were worried about your guests’ well being so much as to sacrifice yourself in leading by example. πŸ˜‰
    Third, I think that being able to wait until they were cool and cut is WAY more self control than I would have had.
    Keep up the chocolate amazingness!

  23. I made these for the second time tonight, and since I didn’t have Twix bars, I used Reeses PB cups. These were a hit too! πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  24. omg… i just stumbled upon these… while i’m on a no sugar challenge for 2 weeks.. and training for my first 5k. but let me tell you as SOON as that is done I WILL be eating these!

  25. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or blog posts in this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i am happy to exhibit that I have an incredibly excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I most indubitably will make sure to do not forget this web site and provides it a glance regularly.

  26. Omg these brownies were out of this world… Made them for family gathering lastnight and they were a hit. Two were left and I had to hide them for my cousin to have who hosted the party and lied to his brother and told him they were all gone!! Lol this way he could have a midnight snack! Thanks for posting! This is a keeper!

  27. I have been making this recipe of yours for a long time now, sometimes with the twix bars and caramel, sometimes with just a handful of chocolate chips instead. I had to comment that I quadrupled this recipe to make dessert for my son’s marching band. They are marching in a competition today. To say it was a hit with hungry teenagers is a huge understatement! Love this recipe! It was super simple to quadruple too!! Love your site!
