A while back, my aunt tagged me in a Facebook post containing the recipe to these brownies, asking me to make them for her. They looked delicious, but I just never really got around to it. When I finally decided to make them, I did NOT regret it! If anything, I regret not making them SOONER! I am not a big chocolate lover, but these brownies are the most amazing dessert I have EVER had. I would recommend these to any and every one!
You will need:
~50 caramels (unwrapped)
15.25 oz. German chocolate cake mix
1 cup evaporated milk (divided)
¾ cup salted butter (melted)
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Non-stick cooking spray
Flour (any kind, for the pan)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease and flour a 9×9 in. pan.
In a medium saucepan over medium to low heat, melt the caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk. Stir together until the caramels are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 2/3 cup evaporated milk, and the butter. Mix together with a spoon until the batter is completely combined and smooth.
Pour a little over half of the batter into the prepped pan. Bake for 8 minutes ONLY.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips all over the top of the batter. Drizzle the caramel over the chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls of batter on top of the caramel. The remaining batter will probably not cover all of the caramel and this is fine.
Bake for 18-20 more minutes or until the brownies feel pretty set on top. The edges should be lightly browned and slightly crisped.
Let the brownies cool completely before you cut into them. This takes a little while. The longer they have to cool, the firmer they will become. This will make them much easier to cut and way less messy!
I am not being dramatic when I say “the best brownies you will ever taste”. These are a MUST-TRY!!!
