This is a recipe that was given to me about 15 years ago at a church function by a girl that was visiting our Bible class. I don't remember who she was, what she looked like or whatever happened to her and her husband. I don't think they ever placed membership with our congregation. Anyway, she brought this to a young couples dinner and I asked her for the recipe. It is still on the piece of paper that she wrote it on. I found it going through my messy recipe box. I have been trying to go through it and rewrite the ones that are like this, scratched on a piece of paper...and write them all on cards and file them in the appropriate category. It's going slowly....just in case you are wondering. I have a lot of "chicken scratch" recipes!
almost 1 c. evaporated milk, divided
1 German chocolate cake mix
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt caramels and 1/2 c. evaporated milk in microwave or on stove top. In separate bowl, mix together cake mix, 1/3 c. evaporated milk and melted butter. Spread 1/2 of cake mix mixture in a 9x13 pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Spread semi-sweet morsels over cooked brownies, then spread caramel mixture, and top with the remaining cake mix. Bake again 18-20 minutes.
These brownies are very rich and gooey. A great twist to the traditional brownie!
