I created these caramel brownies on a whim one afternoon.  I had some caramel buttercream frosting left over from when I had made  Snickers cupcakes and I sure wasn’t going to let it go to waste.  I also had a bag of toffee chips and a package of Rolos in my baking cabinet that had been calling my name.  I knew that Brian would want to share these with his coworkers, so I decided to bake them in cupcake liners to make them easier for him to serve.  Fudgey brownies stuffed with chocolate and caramel, topped with that sinful frosting and a smattering of toffee chips.  OH. EM. GEE.

As I had hoped, they were a grand slam home run.  Winner winner caramel brownies for dinner!

Total time: 
Chewy, fudgy brownies filled with creamy caramel and topped with decadent caramel buttercream and rich toffee pieces.
WHAT'S NEEDED
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 Rolo candies, cut in half
  • 1 cup of crushed toffee pieces
  • Caramel buttercream frosting
HOW TO MAKE IT
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a standard cupcake tin with 12 paper liners. Spray each lightly with non-stick spray.
  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in sugar and bring to a boil, whisking frequently; boil 1 minute. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and salt; whisk until combined.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs until combined. Whisk in melted butter-sugar mixture until well combined. Stir in flour mixture until just combined.
  6. Fill each liner 1/3 full with the brownie batter and place a Rolo into each liner.
  7. Place more batter into each liner, filling each one approximately 3/4 full. Sprinkle toffee pieces on the top of each brownie before baking.
  8. Bake brownies for 20-24 minutes, or until edges are browned but the center of each brownie is still slightly soft. Allow them to cool completely in pan before frosting them with the caramel buttercream. Sprinkle tops with more toffee pieces if desired.

    Oh, so many things I’d like to buy… my first purchase would probably have to be their cocoa. I think my customers would be happy if I used this extra rich cocoa in my goodies.

    I would love to have the Precision Pancake and Batter Dispenser (4 cup) and the cake pop decorating stand. Of course they will be more than 10$ but it would help lol
