Caramel Brownies

These babies will knock your socks off!  They are a party fave and requested all the time by my besties. The greatest thing is how easy they are to make. I've been making these since highschool (Geez!) I thought I had this baby posted already but alas....well, here they are!
Ingredients

• 1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix

• 1/3 cup Evaporated Milk

• 3/4 cups Butter, Melted

• 1/3 cup plus 1T Evaporated Milk (additional)

• ¾ Bag of Caramels, Unwrapped – about 40

• 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, and melted butter. Stir together until totally combined. Mixture will be very thick.

Press ¾ of the mixture into a well-greased 8 ½ X 13 inch baking pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside.

In a double boiler (or microwave) melt caramels with additional 1/3 cup plus 1T evaporated milk. When melted and combined, pour over brownie base. Sprinkle chocolate chips as evenly as you can over the caramel.

Take remaining brownie batter and flatten a piece at a time and set it on top of the caramel and chocolate chips so some caramel is exposed and some is covered by batter.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for several hours –or eat hot but you’ll need a spoon!

  1. We love these too! Rather than melt the caramels, I use Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch caramel ice cream topping, FABULOUS! And our recipe has an icing too, ready made frosting thinned with some water then drizzled on the top of the cooled brownies.
    My favorite way to eat these is with a scoop (or 2) of ice cream and then some more caramel sauce on top!
