  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup flour (can substitute with Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour)
  • ¾ cup leftover chocolate candies chopped
  • ¼ cup caramel
  • vanilla bean ice cream for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium high heat.
  • Add the sugar and cocoa powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat.
  • Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs and continuously whisk until the eggs are combined.
  • Add the baking powder and flour and continue to mix. Add in your chopped up leftover candy. Stir until incorporated.
  • Transfer to a greased 12 inch cast iron skillet. Drizzle the caramel on top, and drag a knife through the caramel to spread the caramel throughout the brownie.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 35 - 40 minutes until done. Once the brownie is removed from the oven, place additional candy pieces on top for presentation. Allow to cool for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving.
  • Serve with another drizzle of caramel and ice cream.


Leftover chocolate candies work best in this dish.
You can substitute the flour with Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour and still achieve the same consistency.
