Caramel Fudge Brownies

We branded the last of the calves a few weeks ago so that meant I was knee deep in soapy water and elbow deep in bread dough for 4 days. One day I drug out an oldie, but a goody for dessert. This recipe's been in my favorite's file for over 30 years. My sister-in-law gave it to me before she was my sister-in-law. :)  I haven't made it in a long time and figured I'd make it one day and share it with ya'll. It starts with a cake mix, but don't judge me. You could just as easily make a German Chocolate mix from scratch, however, although I make most everything from scratch, I do have a few shortcuts and  I will use a cake mix for some desert recipes that call for them.


                                

Caramel Fudge Brownies

1 German Chocolate Cake mix
2/3 C evaporated milk
3/4 C butter, softened
50 caramels
6 oz chocolate chips

*Mix cake mix, butter, and 1/3 C evaporated milk until creamy - may need to add a little more milk - I usually do. Spread half of dough in greased 9x13" cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. While cake is baking, melt caramels with 1/3 C milk. Spread on top of first layer and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Spread remaining dough on top and bake about 25 minutes or until top is set. Let cool and cut into squares. I keep them in the icebox before serving them. Everyone requested seconds without me asking and that's a pretty good indication of a winning recipe!

Oh my! How can I ever loose weight when you publish such yummy recipes? I gotta try this one! I'll just have to half it with a friend recovering from knee surgery, that way I can't eat too many! Hmmm, don't have the German mix, wonder would it work with just a chocolate mix?

Brownies AND caramels - a winning combination. Too bad computers don't have smell o'vision.
