I’m a huge fan of using cake mixes and brownie mixes as a cooking hack. I love these salted caramel brownie cookies and they’re so easy to make with a box of brownie mix. They’re sweet, salty, and just absolutely decadent.
These cookies are easy and they bake very quickly as well. They’re great for when you want something sweet but you don’t want the hassle of a complicated recipe.
Not a salted caramel fan? The brownie cookies are still very good without the salted caramel sauce. I always top mine with caramel when I’m ready to eat them.
Are these stuffed with caramels?
I’ve found that when I made caramel stuffed brownie cookies, the caramel tended to leak out and burn. Talk about a disappointment. I think a much better option is topping these brownie cookies with a salted caramel sauce which is easy peasy to make and top the cookies with.
What kind of caramel do I use?
For this recipe, I used a bottle of caramel sauce. The cookies are quick and easy so to keep things simple, I kept the salted caramel sauce easy too.

How do I make these brownie cookies?
To make these brownie cookies, first round up your ingredients and measure them out. You will need:
- 1 box of brownie mix (unprepared)
- 1 large egg
- ⅓ cup of vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons of water
- 2 tablespoons of sea salt
- Caramel sauce
Next, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine the brownie mix, egg, oil, and water. Mix well with a hand mixer until the batter is no longer lumpy and is well mixed. Use a medium cookie scoop (about 1 ½ tbsp) to form the dough into balls. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake your cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the cookies with sea salt when they’re right of the oven. Let them cool and then drizzle with caramel sauce before serving.
Wait to top any extras with caramel sauce and store any extras in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. When ready to serve again, top with caramel sauce.
