  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup Dr Pepper
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 1½ teaspoons flaky salt, plus extra for garnish


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup Dr Pepper
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • Caramel: Place brown sugar, ¾ cup Dr Pepper, and mini marshmallows in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium. Whisk, and let mixture come to a simmer. By the time the marshmallows have melted, mixture should be syrupy. Pour in heavy cream and flaky salt. Stir, and let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Let caramel rest in the freezer to cool while you make the brownie batter.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • In pot, melt the butter. Add in chocolate chips and sugar. Whisk together until melted. Remove pot from heat. Whisk in ½ cup Dr Pepper. Let mixture cool for 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in eggs, salt, and baking powder until smooth. Whisk in flour and cocoa powder.
  • Prepare a parchment-lined 9x13-inch baking pan. Pour brownie batter into the pan. Top with the caramel. Drag a silicone spatula through the caramel and batter to form a swirl pattern. Sprinkle with more flaky salt. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • Let cool before slicing.
