Caramel Brownies

If you were to look at my starred items category in Google Reader, you’d find that I’ve starred more brownie recipes than any other type. But if you look in my blog archives, you’ll see that I really haven’t posted that many different versions of this sweet treat. I have one particular brownie recipe that I consider The Ultimate Brownies, and that’s always my go-to. But then sometimes I see a recipe that I can’t stop thinking about until I make it, and this is one of them. Chocolate and caramel is one of my favorite combinations, and I just knew these brownies were going to be fantastic. And they are.

This recipe uses a boxed cake mix, but the end result really doesn’t taste “boxed” at all. These are gooey, chocolaty, rich, and decadent, and everyone who tried them loved them. I mean, really, how could you not? The hardest part of the recipe was waiting for them to cool before I cut them. Thanks for a great recipe, Natalie!

Caramel Brownies

1 package German chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup melted butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk, divided
1 bag individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.

2. Combine cake mix, melted butter, and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Mix well and pour 1/2 the batter into the pan. Bake for 8 minutes and remove from oven.

3. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and pour over cake.

4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the caramel. Top with spoonfuls of remaining batter and carefully spread to cover caramel. Bake for 20 minutes.

5. Remove from oven and allow to cool at least half an hour before cutting.

Starring this right now...

I tried to make caramel brownies just by putting a caramel in the middle of each brownie. Didn't turn so well, so I'm really excited to try this!

Oh lord...what I wouldn't give to have one of those with a nice big glass of cold milk right about now! Going to the grocery Saturday and I do believe these will be made.
