Burnt Caramel Frosted Brownies are a heavenly treat that are sinfully addictive.  You need to be prayed up before biting into one of these sweet treats.

Pinterest and Kroger are full of  caramel swirled brownies, but burnt caramel frosting topping the brownies????? Yes friends, and it’s mouthwateringly amazing.

I mean, what could be wrong here, it’s decadent, rich, fudgey brownies below a thick layer of divine burnt caramel frosting.

Burnt caramel frosted brownies are so easy.  I made a simple, homemade (no boxes allowed on this site) brownie recipe.  Then a simple burnt caramel frosting, that doesn’t involve caramelizing your sugar.  Easy peasy.

Originally, I made these as bundtlettes using my Bundtlette Brownie Pan.  They turned out so dainty and cute.  However, I realized most people don’t own one of these and made another batch using an 8×8 pan. 

No matter how you make these, you’ll find them easy to make and impossible to put down.  Remember pray hard before consuming.!!!!!

  • 1 cup Chopped nuts Optional

Ingredients for Burnt Caramel Frosting

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Butter
  • ¼ cup Heavy cream I used whipping cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions for Burnt Caramel Frosting

  • Stir together butter and cream in a saucepan over low to medium heat.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Cook until thickened. I usually cook from 5-7 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla
  • Ice brownies after they've cooled around 10 minutes. For bundtlettes see notes below.


I usually do the frosting right after I’ve removed the brownies from the oven and they are cooling.

For Bundtlettes:

  • I filled each cup 2/3’s full.
  • For baking time, I started checking around 20 minutes.
  • For frosting I put about 1 tablespoon, maybe a little more, on each and let it cascade over the sides.
