While they might not technically be ‘brown’ these Caramilk brownies (or blondies) have the most amazing golden colour and caramel taste. Drizzle the brownies with a little extra melted Caramilk for more caramel goodness.
These delicious brownies are basically white chocolate blondies, but with the white chocolate substituted for Caramilk. The caramelised taste of Caramilk works perfectly in these brownies, with extra chunks of Caramilk dotted through the brownies.
This brownie recipe is super quick and easy, and as a bonus it’s a one bowl recipe. That means less cleaning up afterwards, leaving more time to enjoy this delicious treat.
Tips for making Caramilk Brownies
- I used the microwave to melt my butter and chocolate, but you can do this using the stovetop if you prefer. Simply fill a saucepan with a little water and bring to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan and add the butter and chocolate. Stir until both have melted, making sure the simmering water in the saucepan never touches the bottom of the bowl.
- I melted a little extra Caramilk and drizzled it over the finished brownie slices. However this is completely optional.
- If you don’t like the taste of Caramilk (I know not everybody does), simply substitute the Caramilk for white chocolate.
- Allow these brownies to cool in the slice tin completely before attempting to remove them.

Ingredients and substitutions
- Caramilk chocolate – The Caramilk is the star of these brownies, but if you don’t like Caramilk or don’t have any available, try making this recipe with white chocolate.
- Butter – Salted butter was used in this recipe, but this can be substituted with unsalted butter.
- Eggs – 3 large sized eggs (approximately 58g each) were used in this recipe.
- White sugar – The white sugar could be substituted with brown sugar, which would slightly alter the texture of the blondies, but also add even more of a caramel taste.
- Plain flour – To keep these brownies fudgy, be sure to use plain flour, to help control the level of rise.
- Baking powder – The baking powder will give a slight rise to the brownies.
Yes, this brownie recipe can easily be doubled. Use an approximately 23cm x 33cm pan, and increase the cooking time slightly, watching closely toward the end of the baking time.
Yes, fold approximately 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks through the batter just before pouring into the pan. You could also sprinkle over a few extra chocolate chips or chunks just before baking.
The best way to melt the chocolate is using the ‘double boiler’ method on the stovetop, with the chocolate sitting in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. However, I usually melt my chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring each time I remove it from the microwave, and cooking until only just melted.
