Ooey Gooey Caramel Brownies

I saw this recipe from Yesterday on Tuesday and decided it was in my sweet tooth’s best interest to make them! I mean, how could I resist chocolate and caramel right?!  

Found recipe at: Yesterday on Tuesday

  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk 
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a heavy saucepan, combine caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth; set aside.
Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, melted butter and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk by hand until dough holds together.
Press half of the dough into the prepared pan, reserving the rest.
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crust, pour the caramel mixture evenly over the chips. Crumble the remaining dough over the caramel layer and return to the oven.
Bake for an additional 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven.
Cool in refrigerator to set the caramel before cutting into bars.

    I make these same bars, and they are so good! Even my husband who isn't really a chocolate fan loves these! Yours look perfect!

    Oh, I've made these before! Yum! I put in too much butter (two sticks instead of 1.5?), but it still turned out okay. They were a Christmas present for my sister.

    (And Daphne, the Blizzard is pretty great!)

    Oh man… I've been resisting the urge to come check these out since you posted this. Your pics are very problematic for me, ya know… thanks for the good idea!

    This is one of my favorite recipes ever! I use devil's food cake mix for mine so they're nice and chocolatey.

  8. Can't wait to make these!! I have a question though, you say to use cake mix, is this instead of brownie mix? Just want to double check so I can buy the right ingredients!
