So you think you love Knock You Naked Brownies, also known as Caramel Brownies? Just wait until you try these Peanut Butter Caramel Brownies!
Is Peanut Butter Still Good If It Separates?
Yes, it just means the oil and solids have separated.
You can give it a good stir, or store it upside down until the oil is reincorporated into the solids.
I know we’ve chatted about my Mom’s Famous Caramel Brownies before but things just got serious over here as we’ve kind of created the ULTIMATE brownie recipe. I mean, this is it, folks. Everything you love in one place.
How Do You Know When Brownies Are Done?
Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted towards the center of the pan comes out with a few moist crumbs still clinging to it.
The Secret to how to make caramel brownies from a box is back in our caramel brownie post I linked to above. This recipe is a good one to make with a box of cake mix or from scratch which is how we do it in our cookbook, Our Sweet Basil Kitchen.
Peanut butter and caramel totally go together. Isn’t there a peanut butter Milky Way or Snickers candy bar? I think I’ve seen one. It all kind of melts together but you can taste each flavor which is amazing. Just make sure you give them time to cool as these brownies are incredibly gooey in the center so it needs time to set up. We like to let them rest on the counter and then in the fridge for a bit. We don’t store them in the fridge though, that creates a really firm brownie which ruins the gooey factor.
How Long Will Brownies Keep?
Brownies should be covered and stored at room temperature.
They will keep for 3-4 days.
No matter if you choose to go from scratch or the box just make these today. Or tomorrow if you must, but make it happen. The 4th of July is our caramel brownie tradition and these peanut butter caramel brownies are about to take over the world.

This is it! Whether you call them Knock You Naked Brownies or Caramel brownies doesn’t matter. This is the caramel brownies recipe that uses a cake mix!
So no egg required at all in the recipe, correct?
Keeper for cold days, definitely ! Thank you !
OMGosh! These are amazing! You can really taste all the flavors in each bite.
One note tho, make sure you unwrap the caramels ahead of time – the 8 minutes of the first baking time was not enough time for me. lol. But it turned out wonderful.
Great tip! Thanks so much Wendy!
