Better than "Better than Sex Cake" Brownies

Clever name, huh?

One of my all-time favorite desserts to make (and eat) is 'Better than Sex Cake'--well, last night I had the idea of "Hmm.. I wonder how that would taste if it were a brownie instead of cake.."

Best. Idea. Ever. 

I now present to you the Better than 'Better than Sex Cake' Brownies.

  • 1 box brownie mix 
  • 1 (16 oz.) jar Caramel topping (to make it a little more guilt free, you can get the fat free kind--it doesn't taste much different and always makes me feel a little better about eating this delicious dessert).
  • 1 (8 oz) tub whipped cream (again, I always go fat free to make myself feel better).
  • 4 ounces of toffee bits
Here's the secret: immediately after removing the brownies from the oven, cut small slits into the brownies and add the caramel all over the top. The caramel will seep into the brownies as well as create a delicious, gooey outside. You'll then have to set it in the refrigerator for about an hour to let the brownies cool before adding the whipped cream--this also helps the caramel set even more.
  1. Bake brownies as directed on box.
  2. Remove brownies, follow Annie's secret trick, add caramel and set in fridge for an hour.
  3. Spread whipped cream to top of cooled cake. 
  4. Sprinkle toffee bits.
Once you've finished, go ahead and go for a brisk walk (that's what I have to do to feel less guilty).. or have a glass of wine. Either works.
