Wagon Wheel Brownies Recipe
Kids unhappy about heading back to school? Put a smile on their faces with these easy Wagon Wheel Brownies. I saw these in the back of the last issue of Taste magazine and they instantly put a smile on my face!
We went to a BBQ on the weekend and I knew these would be just perfect to take along because everyone loves brownies and everyone loves wagon wheels.
There’s a layer of wagon wheels on the bottom, an easy brownie mix (melted ingredients in the microwave combined with flour and eggs), poured on top and baked. The chocolate topping is just more chocolate with a bit of butter in the microwave and then pop more wagon wheel on top for decoration!

- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 150g butter, chopped
- 120g dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup self-raising flour
- 1/3 cup plain flour
- 2 packets of 190g Arnott's Wagon Wheels Minis
- 120g dark chocolate, extra for topping
- 40g butter, extra for topping
- Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C fan-forced. Line a 20cm square baking dish with non-stick baking paper, making sure it comes up the sides. Place 12 Wagon Wheels in the base of the pan, trimming to fit.
- Combine the sugar, butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every minute.
- Combine the flours and cocoa in a large bowl. Add the eggs and chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth. Pour over the prepared base. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre come out with a few crumbs clinging. Cool completely in the pan.
- For the topping, combine the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until melted and smooth. Stir every 30 seconds.
- Cut the brownie into 16 squares. Cut the remaining Wagon Wheels into quarters. Spoon a little chocolate topping onto each brownie square. Top with a Wagon Wheel quarter.
Carolyn started her blog Pinkpostitnote.com just over a year ago as a way to deal with her obsession of trying new recipes from the copious collection of cookbooks that she owns (and continues to buy). She is particularly fond of “man” food, both cooking it and eating it. She will happily elbow people out of the road at the sight, sound and smell of a pulled pork burger. When she’s not lying awake at 5am wondering if she should buy chooks and a cow to deal with the constant need for eggs and butter, she’s dealing with all the paperwork associated with owning a bunch of tip trucks and her favorite time of the day is wine five o-clock.
