Ingredients

For the brownies:

  • 1 box brownie mix 18.4 ounces
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water

For the nougat layer:

  • 1 container marshmallow fluff 7 ounces
  • 2/3 cup chocolate spread

For the caramel layer:

  • 1 package caramels 11 ounces
  • 6 tablespoons milk

For the chocolate layer:

  • 1 package milk chocolate chips 11.5 ounces
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9" X 13" pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine brownie mix, oil, eggs and water. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 23-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out almost clean. Edges will appear dry and the center will still look a little moist. Let cool completely.
  • In a medium bowl mix marshmallow fluff and chocolate spread. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave another 30 seconds until the mixture is a spreadable consistency. Spread over cooled brownies, working quickly. Refrigerate while you make the caramel mixture.
  • Put caramels and milk in a medium bowl and microwave in one minute intervals, stirring each time, for 2 minutes, then 30 second intervals until caramels are melted. (Mine took a total of 3 minutes.) Spread over nougat mixture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Place chocolate chips and shortening in a bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, unitl melted. (Mine took 1 minute.) Poor over caramel layer. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before cutting and serving.
  • Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.

Notes

Make sure to use microwave safe bowls for this, and be careful because the bowls could get hot. You can also do this in a double boiler.
You can substitute Nutella for the chocolate spread if you would like.
Cooling and resting time is an estimate.
