Last weekend I made brownies. I used this recipe but made a few changes based on what I could find/had available. So my actual recipe is below.
- 1 box (15.25 Ounce) German Chocolate Cake Mix - the original recipe calls for a larger box but my grocery store only had this size in German Chocolate
- 1/3 cup Evaporated Milk
- 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk (additional)
- 1/2 cup Butter, Melted
- 60 whole Caramels, Unwrapped
- 1/3 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
I put half the batter in my greased 8x8 and baked it at 350 for 8ish minutes. Meanwhile, I melted the 60 caramels with 1/2 evaporated milk in the microwave.
I poured most of it over the bottom layer of brownie, saving the rest since I didn't want the caramel layer to be too thick. I sprinkled 1/3 cup of chocolate chips over the caramel, then put the second layer of batter over it all. I found it helpful to shape the rest of the batter into an approx. 8x8 square because it would have been difficult to spread over hot caramel. Oh, I also stirred a handful of chocolate chips into the second layer of batter because I didn't use the pecans called for in the original recipe. Because I didn't know if the person I was making the brownies for liked pecans.
I baked the whole thing for 25ish minutes. Let cool to room temperature, put it in the refrigerator for a few hours to let everything firm up, then sprinkled the whole thing with powdered sugar.
They were delicious. Seriously.
