Brownie Caramel Candles

Brownie Caramel Candles

It’s spooky season, and I’ve got a fun treat for you – fudgy brownie candles filled with Carnation caramel drizzle sauce to share and enjoy with your loved ones this Halloween.


BROWNIES (Makes 9 single layer 2” candles / 4 double layer 2” candles / 2 double layer 3” candles):

  • 6.7 ounces butter or buttery baking spread (about 190g)
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate (under 60% cocoa, about 200g)
  • 6.7 ounces plain flour (about 190g)
  • 1.8 ounces cocoa powder (about 50g)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6.7 ounces caster sugar (about 190g)
  • 2.1 ounces light brown sugar (about 60g)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Carnation Caramel drizzle sauce


  • 10.6 ounces dark chocolate (about 300g)
  • 5.4 ounces double or heavy cream (about 160ml)
  • 2 tablespoons black food coloring for chocolate


  • 3.5 ounces dark chocolate (about 100g)
  • 2 tablespoons black food coloring for chocolate


  1. For the Brownies: Start by melting the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave, heating it for 20 seconds at a time. Set it aside to cool a bit.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric beater or stand mixer until it’s creamy. Then pour in the melted chocolate and butter and mix with a spatula until well combined.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa, and salt into the wet ingredients and mix until everything comes together.
  4. Pour the brownie mixture into a lined 20cm square baking tin and bake for 25 minutes at 338°F (170°C).
  5. For the Ganache: Heat the chocolate and cream together in the microwave, 20 seconds at a time, until the chocolate is soft. Mix them together and add 2 tablespoons of black food coloring for chocolate.
  6. While the ganache is cooling, use cookie cutters to cut out 9 circles of 2″ size from the brownies.
  7. To create tall brownie candles, stack 2 brownies on top of each other using 1 teaspoon of ganache. Otherwise, leave them as single-layer candles.
  8. Cover the brownies with cling film and place them in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  9. Cut a hole in the middle of the brownies and fill it with 1/2-1 tablespoon of Carnation caramel drizzle.
  10. Once the ganache has cooled and thickened, spread it all over the brownies to create a candle shape.
  11. Melt 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate in the microwave and add 1-2 tablespoons of black food coloring for chocolate. Drizzle it down the sides of the brownie candles.
  12. Finally, push a candle into the top of each brownie. Just remember to remove the candles before serving. Enjoy your Halloween treat! 🎃🕯️😋
