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 sauce 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:)

  1. 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!

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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?

  6. 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!
