Chewy, chocolatey, rich, decadent Rolo brownies. Guys, I love these brownies so much.
And I won't even tell you how much the boyfriend loved them. Brownies are his favorite treat, and these really won him over.
It's the best thing ever when you take a bite of brownie and get that gooey caramely bite with the Rolo in it.
And these are the easiest brownies you will ever make. Seriously, so easy.
**If you're a brownie or chocolate lover, you'll also love my all time favorite Caramel Marshmallow Crunch Brownies they are also pretty darn easy to make with gooey caramel and marshmallow, and rice krispies to add that extra "crisp" factor**
So guys, I like to use a brownie mix. So are these brownies totally from scratch?? No. Definitely not. Honestly, I'm not really interested in making brownies from scratch at this point in my life.
I know from scratch is better, but these are just easier, and super amazing. And I know how busy you guys are.
While you can use any brownie mix for thees brownies, my favorite is the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie mix (affiliate link - I earn a small commission if you buy through this link).
It is perfectly fudgy and chocolaty with added chocolate chips. The brownies always come out nice a chewy (just the way I like them).
And then you need Rolos. If you've never had a Rolo, then you've never lived. You need these in your life. Chewy caramel and milk chocolate in a individual bite size, I love these things (affiliate link - I earn a small commission if you buy through this link):
Step By Step Instructions
Make the brownie batter according to the package on the box. Pour the batter into a parchment paper lined 8x8 baking dish.
If you haven't been using parchment paper in your baking yet, you should totally try it. It makes it so much easier to lift the brownies out of the pan and slice them. No more struggling to slice and remove them from the pan!
Count out 16 Rolos and unwrap them. Push them into the batter at even intervals. It is ok if they don't go all the way into the batter, they will melt as the brownies bake.
Cook the batter according to the directions on the package. I typically cut the cooking time by about 1-2 minutes because I like extra gooey brownies. I cooked these brownies for 38 minutes.
Eat some Rolos while you wait. This isn't mandatory, but highly recommended.
Let the brownies cool fully, lift out of the pan, cut and serve.

I have never tasted a boxed brownie I didn't like. Ghirardelli is my family favorite brownie mix. These look incredible, Danielle!
They have a great brownie mix! Thanks Thao 🙂

Oh my...these looks downright addicting! I love a good caramel/chocolate combination - what a great idea to use Rolo's!
The Ghirardelli brownie mix is also my go to when I don't have the time to make homemade brownies. I can't wait to add rolos next time to make them even better. Thanks for the tip!
It's the best brownie mix IMO! And I never seem to have time to make homemade brownies!!
What a tasty treat! I love Rolos and I think my kids are going to love it.
Thanks Lisa! Totally easy to make too 🙂
These were some of my all time favorite brownies ever!
