  • 1 roll refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough I used Pillsbury; use whatever brand or flavor you like-it doesn’t have to be peanut butter
  • 1 box brownie mix made for an 9x13-inch pan plus water, eggs, and oil called for to make the brownies
  • 1 1/2 cups caramel bits you can find them in the baking section or other candy


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Slice cookie dough roll into 1/4” thick slices. Press evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle with caramel bits.
  • Mix brownie mix according to package directions. Pour over caramel bits and spread carefully with a spatula.
  • Bake for about 25-35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean along the edge of the brownies. You can eat these after they’ve cooled about 15 minutes in pan, but they won’t cut easily unless they’ve completely cooled.



Use any flavor cookie dough and any candy in the center you want!
