Rolo Stuffed Brownies

Rolo Stuffed Brownies - these are amazing, gooey, and just dripping with caramel!What’s a girl to do with a bag of Rolo’s? I could stash them in my freezer.

But then the caramel would get too hard, and I don’t need a reason to see my dentist more than twice a year. I could leave them in my pantry.

Now.. we all know that’s dangerous.

So I baked them into brownies. And not just any old brownies, my favorite brownie recipe. Even more dangerous.

Rolo Stuffed Brownies - these are amazing, gooey, and just dripping with caramel!This recipe is good for type A people and type B people. Even if we can’t agree on how quickly the folded laundry needs to be put away, we can agree that brownies stuffed with rolos is a really good idea.

It doesn’t matter if you carefully unwrap each rolo, gently placing it bottom side down in the brownies, in a neat grid of course or if you get gold wrapper flakes all over your kitchen and kind of just throw the rolo’s into the brownie batter.. we will both end up with amazing, gooey rolo stuffed brownies.

I’m the type who likes my rolo’s neatly and evenly distributed throughout the brownie batter.

I want an even ratio of rolo’s to brownies in every brownie.

But maybe your the type of person who wouldn’t mind a mountain of rolo’s piled high in the middle of one of your brownies. It does sound delicious and caramel-y, like it would require a gallon of milk.

Rolo Stuffed Brownies

Yield: one 9x13 inch pan

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 & 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chopped chocolate chunks
  • 10 oz dark chocolate morsels
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 package of Rolo’s, unwrapped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally butter a 9×13 inch baking pan. Remove the eggs from the fridge.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, cocoa powder and chopped chocolate chunks. Set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the dark chocolate morsels, and butter. Stir the mixture occasionally until everything is melted. Once melted, remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Add the sugar and brown sugar to the chocolate mixture in the saucepan and mix. If the mixture is not already at room temperature, allow it to cool for a few minutes before adding the eggs.
  5. Add three eggs to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Add the remaining two eggs, and mix again. Stir in the vanilla.
  6. Slowly combine the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture, stirring to mix. Avoid over mixing, if a little bit of the flour is visible that’s okay.
  7. Transfer half of the batter into the 9×13 inch pan, spreading evenly. Place 1 bag of unwrapped Rolo’s in the pan and then cover with the rest of the batter.
  8. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, rotating the pan at 15 minutes. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting.

If you pop your brownie in the microwave for a few seconds before eating, the rolo’s will soften up and the caramel will become gooey – bring on the caramel!

  14. Can I do this with box mix? If so, would i need two boxes?

    • Hi Alison, I’m not entirely sure, you could buy 2 boxes just in case, start with one and see how that goes!

  15. How many grams is 2 sticks of butter?

  16. I feel like there are some days where we just NEED sweets. Maybe you’ve been super stressed, maybe you didn’t get to have your morning cup of coffee, maybe your kids have been reminiscent of devil-spawn, or maybe you saw a photo on Instagram that just made you mouth water and sparked that instant craving. When I feel a dessert craving, my usual go-to is a brownie. And by A brownie, I really mean SOME brownies lol.
