  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Cut 9 caramels in half.
  2. Beat brownie mix, vegetable oil, water, and eggs together in a bowl until batter is well-combined. Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Place caramel halves in 3 rows of 6 in the brownie batter so that there will be a caramel half in the center of each brownie.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Melt remaining caramels, butter, and milk together in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Pour caramel mixture over warm brownies and top with pretzels, chocolate chips, and toffee bits. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Turned out fabulous. I didn't have any chocolate chips so I used leftover Christmas candy (chopped in a food processor). I also used caramel topping instead of caramels.

So good, even though I stuck with just the caramel and pretzel topping. The additional caramels inside and toffee bits on top, would have been way too sweet. I kept an additional box of brownies...

I made these for a church event, and they were a big hit. They turned out more like fudge than brownies, probably because I used caramel ice cream topping instead of unwrapping caramel candies....

OMG! These were amazing!! I ended up incorporating mini chocolate chips into the batter before baking instead of on top as directed - only because I misread the recipe. Will definitely make ag...

Used Carmel topping! Grandkids loved it!


Made them to sell at a bake sell and they sold out in 10 minutes. Everyone loved them!

It was delicious! Make sure the caramel is very thin though.
