Holy Heck Brownies

These Holy Heck Brownies are the perfect brownie filled with caramel, Snickers and white chocolate chips…Over the top good!

Does the world need another brownie recipe?



Well, yes.

Because there’s a brownie out there for everyone…chewy, cakey, fudgy…dark, milk, white…frosting, no frosting…caramel filled, peanut butter filled…

The list goes on for infinity.


So today I will add to the list.

And these suckers are bad to the bone.


You’ve got a fudgy brownie…filled with white chocolate, Snickers, caramel, and chocolate chips.

Totally Holy Heck.


And they’re pretty easy too.  Let’s have a look.

First whisk together your flour, sugar, salt, cocoa powder… almost all the things…

Take 1 cup of batter out and reserve it.


Then spread the rest of the batter into a prepared pan..

By the way, I used these nifty unwrapped Snickers Bites I found.  Dangerrrrr.

First white chocolate chips, then Snickers Bites, then caramel.

Finally mix the remaining batter with a little milk to thin it out and add in your mini chocolate chips, and spread that on top.


The reason I like to thin the batter slightly for the top layer, is because it will spread much easier.  The base needs to be a thick batter to hold up all those fillings, but the top can be a little thinner.

Just think of it like a brownie hat.  Or something.


Wait until they are completly cool to cut them into squares…

Holy Heck Brownies
makes 16 brownies
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chopped Snickers or 1 bag of Snicker Bites
  • 1 cup caramel sauce (or 1 cup of caramels melted with 1-2 tbsp of milk)
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line an 8x8 pan with foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. In medium bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt and both sugars. Set aside.
  5. In bowl of stand mixer beat together 2 eggs, vanilla and melted butter until combined.
  6. Turn mixer to low and add in dry ingredients.
  7. Scoop out 1 cup of the batter and set aside.
  8. Spread the remaining batter into your prepared pan.
  9. Top with white chocolate chips, then Snickers and then caramel.
  10. Place reserved batter back into mixing bowl. Add 2 Tbsp of milk and beat until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Spread this on top of caramel.
  11. Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is almost set.
  12. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
You can use either caramel sauce or melted caramel in the recipe. If you choose to unwrap and melt caramels, you will need to add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to thin the caramel.

I also used the unwrapped Snickers Bites but if you can't find those, just chop up Snickers bars.

Holy heck is right, Shelly!
I am the worlds biggest brownie fan, and I’m actually kind of mad that I don’t have a pan of these right in front of me. You don’t happen to know a magical way to zap these to me instantly, do you??
Pinning now, and making these for sure (unless they magically appear in my lap)!

Yummy. It’s sound delicious. I want to try it. I think it’s good for weekend tea table.

I made these this weekend and since I cannot eat gluten i could not taste them, but….the people i made them for loved them. The batter was very very thick and i made some slight subs based on what i had. i only had a little bit of caramel so i used what i had but it was prob only about 1/4 cup. I also subed pb chips instead of white chocolate and used regular sized choc chips in the topping based on what i had on hand. Baked for 30-32 mins. I’m told the brownies were gooey and fudge… Read more »
