Chocolate Caramel Brownies

I got this recipe out of our ward's cookbook. They were good and fairly easy and super chocolately and gooey. Mmmm...The most time consuming part was unwrapping all of those caramels.
1 lb. caramels
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup melted butter (one and a half cubes)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
(1 cup of nuts are optional...I did not use)

Melt the caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk on low on the stove. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine 1/3 cup evaporated milk, melted butter and cake mix. Spread half the of cake mixture in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 6 minutes. Sprinkle with chocolate chips (and nuts). Drizzle caramel over that. Spread remainder of cake over the top (this is more like dropping small amounts of the batter all over the top) Bake for 15 minutes at 350. Cool and then refrigerate to set caramel.

  1. I have this exact recipe! We call them Ooey Gooies. They are soooooo good! Sometimes I double them (but not the caramel part) but still put them in a 9x13. Then they're huge, tall & even more amazingly overindulgent! LOL
