When I first saw the recipe for these Twix Caramel Brownies on the blog ‘Two Peas and Their Pod’, I could not get them out of my mind. I mean, how can you resist brownies made out of chocolate, caramel, and Twix bars?? I absolutely love the combination of chocolate and caramel, so I knew I would love these brownies. After a few days went by and I still couldn’t stop thinking about these brownies, I finally decided it was time to give into my craving, so I picked up some Twix bars and caramel sauce at the grocery store, and then got to work in my kitchen.
And all I can say is wow. These brownies are amazing! They are definitely some of the best brownies I have ever had. They are so fudgy, rich, and chocolaty. And the addition of caramel and Twix bars takes them over the top – I love the extra little bit of crunch and sweetness that the Twix bars impart. If you are in the mood for a fancier variation of classic brownies, try these Twix caramel brownies!
Twix Caramel Brownies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- ¾ cup cocoa
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups chopped Twix candy bars
- 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Place butter in a medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined. Stir in Twix candy bar chunks. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3. Drizzle caramel evenly over the brownies. Using a toothpick, swirl caramel into brownies. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into squares and serve.
