Rolo Brownies

Brownies are definitely my favorite chocolate-based sweet food. I love the gooey texture and the rich chocolate taste. When I saw Rolo's at the supermarket I knew that I had to make some brownies.

Brownies are a great treat to whip up. The prep work is easy and takes minimal time. And of course, they are a pleasure to eat!

I always use at least half brown sugar in my brownie recipes. The brown sugar gives the brownies a fantastic fudginess that is difficult to achieve with white sugar alone.

Rolo Brownies

Makes 18 pieces

200 g (7 oz) butter
200 g (7 oz) milk or dark chocolate, broken into squares
1 Cup caster sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup plain flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract
200 g (7 oz) Rolos

1. Preheat oven to 180C (355F)

2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large bowl. Whisk in the sugars and then the eggs and vanilla.

3. Sift in the flour and cocoa, mix well.

4. Pour half of the mixture into a greased or lined baking dish. Spread the Rolos evenly over the top and pour over the remaining brownie mix.

5. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.


  1. Rolos were my fave as a kid, why weren't these brownies around then? They look so good.

  2. These look so enticing! What a great holiday gift!

  3. How I love Rolos!! These look so delicious with fudgy brownies... which coincidently is my favourite kind of brownie! Definitely pinning these! :)

  4. These look soooo good! I love rolos, I haven't had them in a long time though - in a brownie is definitely the best way to have them though I'm sure! I also like to use at least half brown sugar in brownies, it definitely makes them that much fudgier!

  5. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your fabulous recipe this week at Foodie Fridays.Hope to see you again tonight!
