  • 1 box Pillsbury chocolate fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 c canola oil
  • 1/4 c hot water
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 c half and half
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line a square baking pan with parchment paper
  • In a bowl mix together the brownie mix, eggs, oil and hot water
  • Add the chocolate chips, mix
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, brown sugar, half and half, vanilla and salt
  • Bring to a bubble, whisking for 5 minutes (turn the heat down if its boiling too rapidly)
  • Add the baking soda, it will foam up
  • Turn the heat down to low and whisk
  • Pour 3/4 of the brownie batter into the baking pan
  • Pour in the caramel, keeping it away from the edges
  • Pour the rest of the brownie mixture on top
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until the internal temperature of the brownies reach at least 180 degrees
  • Remove from the oven, let the brownies cool for at least 2 hours on a cooling rack before taking out of the pan. I find the best texture is to let them cool 6 hours before cutting in to them, this gives them time to fully set up.
  • Cut in to squares and serve!
