Rolo Brownies Recipe

Line an 8” x 8” square pan with parchment paper and spray well with non-stick cooking spray. Set the baking tin aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, place butter and chopped Baker’s chocolate into the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir well. If not fully melted, continue to heat in 30-second intervals (stirring after every 30 seconds) until fully melted. You want this melted but not very hot.

Stir or gently whisk granulated sugar and light brown sugar into the melted chocolate mixture. All of the mixing for these brownies should be done by hand with a spatula and not mixed with an electric mixer. Using an electric mixer or overbeating will result in a cake-textured brownie, not fudgy. Then, stir in eggs, one at a time, until fully mixed in. After that. stir in vanilla extract, flour, salt, and chocolate chips.

Using a spatula, pour half the brownie mix into the prepared baking dish. Evenly place 49 Rolos on the first layer of brownie batter.  Use a spatula to pour the remaining brownie batter evenly over the Rolo layer. Place in oven and bake for 60 to 65 minutes. Brownies are done when the sides and middle of the top of brownies look set (have slightly risen).

Chocolate Ganache Topping

 In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt Baker’s chocolate and butter for one minute in the microwave on high. Stir well after the first minute. If the chocolate hasn’t completely melted yet, continue to heat in 30-second intervals (stirring every 30 seconds) until fully melted. 

Chocolate Ganache Recipe

Pour ganache topping evenly over cooled brownies (still in the baking tray). Place a baking pan of brownies in the fridge for at least 3 hours (or overnight) to let chill. These brownies are extremely fudgy so they need several hours to chill in the fridge to be able to hold their shape when cutting.

Freezer Recipe

If sealed properly in a food-safe container these brownies can be frozen for up to 3 months. I’d recommend wrapping each square individually in plastic food wrap and just taking each out of the freezer as you want them. Bring back to room temperature before serving.

Notes

  1. Store brownies at room temperature (in a sealed food-safe container) for up to 4 days or in the fridge for up to 6 days.
  2. It’s important to use Baker’s chocolate, not regular chocolate chips since chocolate chips have a coating on them that prevents them from melting as smoothly as Baker’s chocolate.  
  3. Why should I not use an electric mixer for these fudgy Rolo brownies? Overbeating the brownie batter will result in a cake-like texture of brownies after baking instead of the fudgy texture. 
  4. These brownies are extremely fudgy! They are meant to be super chewy like biting into a piece of fudge. It’s important that they cool completely at room temperature before topping with ganache frosting then chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours (preferably overnight) before cutting into squares.
