I can’t take any ownership for this recipe because you literally just buy a box of brownie mix, follow the directions and add some more candy to jazz them up a bit. You could legit make these appropriate for any holiday or celebration throughout the year. I’ve made a rocky road brownie by adding peanuts and marshmallows on top of a caramel drizzle, or dried cherries and raspberry jam mixed into the mix before you bake. But everyone will think you’re fancy by adding a little something extra to your brownie mix and I’ll take that all day long!
If you don’t own a brownie pan (or honestly, any sort of bar can get made in this pan!) then you are MISSING OUT. I had made raspberry oat bars, blondies, lemon bars and even oatmeal bars using this pan (which we are restocking ASAP). All of the Chicago Metallic pieces we have on Olive Lane get used in our home more than you would expect. Our mini muffin tins (also great for snack trays when you have kids or are hosting kids!), cookie dunker pan (so fun for hot chocolate or ice cream!), mini loaf pan (the best way to deliver mini banana breads to neighbors) or even our pizza crisper are a few favorites.
How to jazz up a box of brownie mix!
1 brownie box mix
1 bag of Ghirardelli chocolate caramel squares
Non-stick cooking spray
**depending on your size/quantity needed, I often double this recipe!
Mix your brownie batter by following the directions on the box. Spray your brownie pan with nonstick spray (I like coconut oil) and layer brownie batter into pan. Using your chocolate caramel squares, place them on top with a little space apart (to define each brownie). Bake following the instructions on the brownie mix box!
Once done, remove from oven and immediately top with sprinkles. Let cool completely before cutting or removing from your brownie pan. Enjoy!
