Ingredients
  

Brownies

  • 1⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salted sweet cream butter
  • cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • cup unwrapped Rolos sliced in half

Ganache

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • cup unwrapped Rolos halved

Instructions
 

Brownies

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with a parchment paper sling. Spray the lined baking dish with baking spray (Baker’s Joy or a generic version). Set it aside.
  • Using a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set it aside.
  • Using a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl, combine the dark chocolate chips and butter. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, heat in 15-second intervals until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  • Add the brown and white sugars to the chocolate mixture, and continue stirring until incorporated.
  • Stir in the eggs, one at a time, until no egg streaks are visible.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Stir in ½ of the flour mixture at a time. Stir just until all the flour mixture is added, and do not overmix.
  • Spoon ½ of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Spread the batter to the edges of the pan.
  • Evenly place the unwrapped and halved Rolos over the batter.
  • Spoon and spread the remaining batter over the top of the Rolo layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes away clean.

Ganache

  • Using a small heat-safe mixing bowl, add the ½ cup dark chocolate and heavy cream. Microwave for 30 to 40 seconds. Stir until the ganache is smooth.
  • Once the brownies are baked, pour the ganache over the top of the brownies, spreading the ganache to the edges.
  • Evenly space the Rolos over the top of the ganache. Allow the brownies to completely cool before slicing.

Notes

Note: Lining the pan with parchment paper will allow you to lift the entire baked brownies out of the pan for easier cutting once cooled. You can also grease the pan instead if you would prefer.
 
Note: Place Rolos in the fridge for 10 minutes to make them much easier to cut in half.
 
Note: Adding the halved Rolos to the ganache while it is warm encourages the caramel centers to ooze just the right amount when cutting and biting into the brownie square.
