Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9-by-9-inch baking pan.

Begin by pouring 1/3 cup evaporated milk into a bowl with the cake mix. Add the melted butter and the chopped pecans. Mix the ingredients together; it'll be pretty thick!

Divide the dough in half down the middle. Press half of it into the bottom of the prepared pan to make the first brownie layer. Bake until slightly set, 8 to 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and set aside.

While the brownie layer is baking, in a double boiler (or glass bowl set over a bowl of simmering water) combine the caramels and the remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk. Stir occasionally until the caramels are totally melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour the caramel mixture over the first baked layer, spreading so it's evenly distributed. Sprinkle the chocolate chips all over the top.

Next, on a clean surface or a sheet of waxed paper, press the remaining dough into a square shape slightly smaller than the baking pan. Carefully set it on top of the chocolate chips. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let the brownies cool to room temperature. Cover the pan and refrigerate the brownies for several hours to allow them to set.

When you're ready to serve them (or give them to someone you love!) sprinkle generously with the powdered sugar and cut them into large rectangles before removing from the pan. These are absolutely killer, my friends. Make them for someone you really, really love... or someone you want to love you back.

It'll work. Guarantee it.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !! Thank you for this delicious recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These brownies are unbelievable - so decadent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these Knock-You-Naked Brownies today and OMG ... so delicious! The caramel in the middle is just simply wonderful! I did however use the suggestion in one review to melt the caramels with the evaporated milk in the microwave ... much easier than on the stove ... thank you for sharing this recipe it truly is mouth watering good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The delicious taste was there but I found them very messy to eat and cutting them into small servings was not the way to go. The carmels too a long time to melt and I would soften them in the microwave if I made it again. Also the batter was not as thick as what was in the video demonstration so I had to add more flour to make it so I could pat it into the pan easier. Would think cutting the number of caramels would help. It needs some adjustments. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a big fan of brownies. I have never made German Chocolate ones and decided to give these a try. Followed directions and they turned out great! They held their shape perfectly and the center was so good! I will be making these again and maybe trying a darker chocolate mix too. Thank you Ree item not reviewed by moderator and published
Normally a huge fan of Ree's recipes, I was definitely very surprised that I was not a big fan of this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. I found it bland and to be quite frank quite flavorless. Normally my family gobbles up treats such as this and on day two most of it is still sitting there. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are wonderful. I made them for a gift and they were a huge success! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is not Ree's recipe - this was originally on the back of the Betty Crocker German Cake Mix box - late '70's to early 1980's. Know it for a fact because the recipe is still in my recipe box - cut off the back of the Betty Crocker cake mix box. - They are addicting and affectionately called "Calorie Bars" by all the girls who made these in 4-H. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Going to make them for my grand daughters... Let's see what they say! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The instructions don't match up with the ingredients. Instructions call for melting caramels in evaported milk, neither of which are listed in the ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh i do agree we love them. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm not sure how you can review a recipe that you haven't made yet. And a rating of 3 stars? Really? item not reviewed by moderator and published
