Caramel Kit Kat Brownies

These are so rich and delicious, I think I ate half the pan by myself. These again were for my sister’s graduation party and I used the leftover caramel from my Caramel Macchiato Cake to top the brownies with. When you just want to kick up your everyday brownies, these will be gone in a flash.

Soft and chewy brownies with rich kit kats in the middle. Topped with a caramel swirl for that extra special touch.


  • 2 20 oz Boxes Ghirardelli Brownie Mix
  • Additional Ingredients needed according to box ( eggs, oil, water)
  • 6 kit kat bars 1.5 oz each
  • ½ cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ⅛ cup butter
  • 7 oz. condensed milk ( about ½ a can)


  1. Make the caramel: Add all ingredients into a small-medium saucepan and cook on medium low till caramel is a dark golden brown color, stirring frequently, so it does not burn. Set aside once done.
  2. Preheat oven according to box instructions. Lightly grease a 9 by 13 glass pan. Make batter according to box instructions. Pour 1/2 of batter into the pan and spread evenly. Break kit kat bars apart and lay evenly in batter. Add the other 1/2 of batter, spreading evenly. Spoon caramel over batter into a swirl pattern.
  3. Place in oven and bake according to box instructions till the brownies spring back when touched ( because we made a double batch we cooked them for an hour and 15 min @ 325). Enjoy!


If you don’t want to take the time to make caramel, you can always buy pre-made at the store. No one will judge.
