Caramel Pretzel Brownies


If you love chocolate, caramel, and pretzels mixed together, you'll love these pretzel brownies. If you have a good caramel recipe, use it; it would sure beat unwrapping all of the caramel candies! The same goes if you have a great brownie recipe.

18 brownies


  • 1 (14 ounce) bag individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped, divided

  • 1 (18.3 ounce) package fudge brownie mix (such as Betty Crocker®)

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • 1 cup chopped pretzels

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips

  • cup chocolate-covered toffee bits


  1. Preheat the 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 in a bowl until well combined. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish. Press three rows of 6 caramel halves into the brownie batter so there will be one 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. Remove from the oven.

  4. Combine remaining caramels, butter, and milk in a microwave-safe, glass or ceramic bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted, 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave).

  5. Pour caramel mixture over warm brownies. Scatter pretzels, chocolate chips, and toffee bits over top. Cool for 20 minutes before cutting into 18 squares.

Editor's Note:

If you use another brand's fudge brownie mix, just follow the baking instructions on the box.
