Caramel Chocolate Brownie Tartlets

I wanted to do something different. I was at the mercy of what I had on hand, since as most of you know, I live out in the country. A quick dash out to the grocery store does not exist out here! I had a box brownie mix in the pantry, some chocolate chips (very few since the hubby found them and has been munching on them in secret!) and caramels. (very few of them also since my son found them...) Hmmm... what to do? I didn't want just plain old brownies, so I made more of a cookie batter and stuffed them!

Cookie Batter:
1 Milk Chocolate Brownie Mix
1 egg
4 oz cream cheese, room temp
1/4 cup butter, melted

Caramels, cut each into 4 pieces
Chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini-tart pan with oil. Combine ingredients in a large bowl, and beat until well combined.

Scoop with a cookie batter scoop and place in pan.
Place a caramel on the center and push into batter, but do not cover it. 

Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Take out of the oven and place 2 chocolate chips on each tart.

Cool and serve.


  1. What a clever dessert! My pantry never has good stuff like yours. :) I need to get shopping.

  2. I made these for a very casual dinner party and they were quite the success! Had a number of friends wanting the recipe!

  3. Oh my goodness gracious!!! Thank you for sharing these on Manic Monday!! Pinned them and shared on FB ad Twitter :)
