Taylor went to a birthday party the other night and came home raving about the caramel brownies they served. I called for the recipe the next day. These are delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream.
1 box German chocolate cake mix
3/4 c. butter, melted
5 oz. can evaporated milk, divided
12 oz. pkg. caramels, unwrapped
1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
Combine cake mix, butter and 1/3 cup of the evaporated milk. Spread half of the batter in the bottom of a greased 13x9 inch pan )this layer will be very thin). Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Meanwhile, place caramels and the rest of the evaporated milk in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir until caramel is melted and smooth. Remove brownies from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Pour caramel over the top, then place spoonfuls of the remaining cake mix on top of that (do not mix). Bake again at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes.
