I wasn’t sure if this qualified as a “cake” or as “brownies”. It’s a brownie mix, but, it’s baked in two cake pans. It was a conundrum . 🤔

So, I simply called it a “dessert”. But, whatever you want to call it… is delicious.

What Ingredients are Needed?

  • Brownie mix + ingredients called for on the box.
  • Whipped topping ( ex: Cool Whip/Tru Whip)
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Caramel sauce

Brownie Mix: Any brand of brownie mix can be used or your favorite homemade recipe. However, it will need to be a recipe/box that normally fills a 13 x 9 pan.

Whipped Topping: Again, any brand is OK. You can also go with any variety ( ex: low fat, fat free, etc)

Chocolate Frosting: I used a standard 16 oz container of store bought chocolate frosting. Go with your favorite!

Caramel Sauce: Store bought or make it homemade.

What are The Layers?

  • First Layer: Brownie
  • Second Layer: Chocolate frosting
  • Third Layer: Whipped topping
  • Fourth Layer: Brownie
  • Fifth Layer: More chocolate frosting
  • Final Layer: Caramel sauce

A few things to note:

  • Be sure to let your brownie layers cool completely before building your dessert.
  • Start with smaller portions…it’s a whole lotta dessert!
