Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter, melted, plus more for greasing
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1/3 plus 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • One 18.5-ounce box German chocolate cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 60 caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe

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.

First off, I want to state that I really enjoy Ree's cookbooks and have never been disappointed with any of her cooking recipes (her chicken enchiladas are amazing). This is the second dessert recipe of hers I have tried that hasn't quite made the cut (previous recipe was the Tres Leches Cake; tasted great but came out way too soggy). I feel that she uses too much in some of her ingredients. For instance, the caramels could have easily been halved. These brownies were waaaaaay too sweet. Even my 8 year old told he thought they were gross and we all felt sick after eating one because of the overpowering sugar. I might just stick to her dinner ideas. This recipe was not for me.  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.

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

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
I have been making these since I was in college in the late 70's! The only thing I do differently is refrigerate them when finished. The bars are easy to cut, the choc. chips are hard, and they retain their shape. I love these way more in their non-"ooey-gooey" state. They are like a rich, chocolate brownie bar. Right now I would just about kill for one with a cold glass of milk. Yummmmm. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing!! Followed her way of using the wax paper for the 2nd layer &amp; flipped it over on top &amp; carefully peeled off the wax paper. Saw in an earlier review to partially freeze this layer &amp; I think I will try that the next time. I didn't like unwrapping all the caramels either &amp; was wondering if you could use caramel ice cream topping and add the evaporated milk to it?? Might try this the next time. These are really delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Crazy good!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these brownies for a friend who was moving and OMG VERY GOOD! They are rich and as they sit out, they do get more gooey; they don't keep their shape like a normal brownie due to the caramel mixture. In response to some of the reviews, the top would have been difficult to put on, but I rolled it in between plastic wrap than picked it up w/ the wrap and placed it on. It would probably have been even easier if you pre-cut the size of the square to determine how much to roll. I eye-balled it and I came up a bit short, but just pushed it out to cover the sides. For the cutting, I too found it VERY hard to cut; however, if you let it set in the fridge, than take it out just to soften enough to get a knife through, placing it back in the fridge to set again, they will be easier to take out when you are ready. And the caramels, I found that Wearther's now makes baking caramels, found in the candy isle. Very easy to unwrap. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These brownies were amazing. Warning!!! if you are not a chocolate lover, don't bother, these brownies are very rich. I didn't have enough caramels so I only used 39 of them with 1/4 cup of evaporated milk, I added extra pecans to the caramel sauce and I used an 8x8 pan. These brownies were a hit, they lasted literally 8 minutes when my husband took them to work. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made these for my hubby and they are sooo good! didn't have german chocolate cake mix so i used red velvet cake mix.. instead of flour to grease the pan i used cocoa powder.. also had no caramels so i went to ree's easy homemade caramel sauce and made it, adding a tablespoon of corn syrup and cooking on the stovetop for way longer than 6-7 minutes-- more like 10-15 minutes.. the caramel came out DECADENT, then i spread every last drop over the first layer of "brownie".. FANTASTIC!! the key is letting these brownies sit.. they are soo good!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make and phenomenal taste! Directions were easy to follow! Key to making is taking time and not rushing. I made the brownies as written and wouldn't change anything!

Best brownies ever!!! I have made these several times and they are a huge hit with everybody!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
i have made these brownies dozens of times and they are always the first things gone at parties. To get them just perfect is to make sure they are completly cooled. What i do is bake them then let them come to room temp. then i thrown them in the freezer for about hour to really have them set. then i take a hot knife and cut out squares. Then let them come to room temp and serve! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have a recipe called German Chocolate Caramel Brownies and it's basically the same except I grease the baking pan (9X11) with Crisco, then dust with some of the dry cake mix. I also do not melt my butter. I let it come to room temp on the counter until it is soft enough to mix. I also use more pecans; 3 cups. 2 cups goes into the batter mix, 1 cup is sprinkled between the top and bottom layer (melted caramel first, pecans and then the choc chips). Do not let them cool completely before cutting them; when the bottom of the pan is still warm, slice. Since they are quite messy, I put each brownie in a cupcake paper that is flattened. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, my taste buds were in heaven and I did have a big smile on my face while sampling these brownies, but once you form your dough into a square to place on top of the caramel, you are going to need a cake lifter or jumbo spatula to transfer it from the board to the pan, otherwise it's impossible to lift and transfer. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Oh these were a huge hit, easy to make directions,I started the caramel sauce when I started to make the sweet treat, everything fell into place, and will be a regular treat in our house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These taste like a candy bar! I would suggest opening all of the little packages surrounding the caramels before starting to mix the brownies (I forgot to do this and it took a lot longer than necessary). Also, it takes longer than I thought to make the caramel itself, even on a high boil, so just be patient, as it is worth the wait! I used a 9 X 11" pan and didn't get the most appealing looking brownies, but they tasted awesome. Instead of walnuts, I used Guittard milk chocolate chips (in addition to what is used in recipe) and got pleasant chunky pieces of chocolate in each bite! I will be making these again! And they taste great cold or warmed up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Brownies is not the right word for these. They are not chocolately tasting at all. My husband who loves brownies and loves everything I make even if I think it's not good did not care for these. As another reviewer said they taste like a cheap store bought dessert. I should have trusted my instinct about not making something using a cake mix. I followed the recipe exactly and will end up throwing most of it away. Very disappointing although the caramel is good. Might be very good if made with a different brownie recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delicious! I won 2nd place in a brownie bake-off at work with these brownies! Interestingly enough my good friend who won 1st place made the exact same brownies. The difference between the 2: I used 9x9 pan and she used a 9x13 pan. Hers were thinner and not quite as gooey. I honestly preferred mine to hers! She said putting the top layer on her brownies was difficult d/t the size. I agreed this was tedious however I didn&amp;#39;t think it was difficult at all. Thanks for the awesome recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have been making this recipe for at least 15 years. It is one of my husband's favorite. I never rolled out the top layer. I have always just put dollops of the second layer of the cake and it spreads out good enough. The only thing I don't like is unwrapping all the caramels. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've made these several times, Fabulous. I've also changed the german chocolate cake for red velvet and the caramel for marshmallow crème, and they were terrific as well., I found it easier to dollop mounds of dough on top instead of rolling or patting out. My entire family loved these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made these brownies twice. The second time I placed the top layer in the freezer while the first layer was baking and I was preparing the caramal layer. This made it easier to transfer to the pan. I used walnuts instead of pecans and chopped them in fairly large pieces. I am a chocoholic and these brownies are completely satisfying! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Favorite recipe of all time! I make it whenever I can because caramels aren't always in season. My family loves them too. To put the top on easier I shaped it then cut it into 9 pieces then placed it like a puzzle on top. : : : : : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love, love, love these brownies. To make the top layer a little easier, I placed some plastic wrap in the bottom of the baking dish and pressed half the dough out evenly. Then I pulled on the wrap and lifted it out. I put it in the fridge to firm up a bit and it worked out fine and was really easy to place on top during the last step. These brownies are definitely rich, so small pieces are the way to go. I sent a batch of these with my granddaughter going back to college and she said the kids went crazy over them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These brownies are absolutely restaurant quality brownies! We all loved them for Valentines day. The only recommendation I can give is to serve warm after they have set up. We also put a scoop of vanilla icecream on top ,,OMG FABULOUS!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
First off, how can something with choclate, nuts, butter, and nuts taste bad? The taste was for sure there but we thought they were overkill... only could take a couple bites... almost like eating fudge. When I have a dessert I want to eat the whole piece. Mine also came out a little dry in the corners and thicker ... did not look thin and pretty like the picture. There are alot better brownie recipes out there. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These have to be some of the best brownies I have ever had. I made them with the intention of giving most of them away but as soon as my husband tried them he only let me give 2 to my parents and we kept the rest. I read some other reviews that said 60 caramels was too much but I think it was just right. I did add a few extra chocoate chips, maybe about a 1/2 total. I will definitely be making these again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I live in Dayton, Ohio and Dorothy Lane Market's (DLM killer brownies, which is what Ree modeled her recipe after according to her blog and show, are simply the best! They have different varieties, but these look like the original killer brownies. I made these brownies and have to admit that they are quite like DLM's killer brownies. I did find out that they are more like killer brownies the next day, so I would recommend making them the day before. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids and I unwrapped the caramels the day before I made them. I cut each one in half (my bag had 48 and put in a zip lock bag. Made the process of making the brownies much faster. I used a 11 by 7 pan and the first layer sunk down all around except the sides as if to create a bowl for the melted caramels! It was perfect as i had no oozing or mess. I took other viewers advice and started the melting process before any thing else. Good call! Did not use nuts, maybe next time I will sprinkle some on half of the mix with the chocolate chips for the nut lovers in my family. I baked first layer for 8 minutes and second layer 20 min. Came out moist and yummy. By the way I used the 15 0z box of another brand as my store only carried the 1 lb box with frosting included and much more expensive. Everything came out perfect! Thanks for sharing Ree as I had not ever heard of this recipe before like other viewers have. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I just made these brownies for a Super Bowl party and I have to say that I am bummed! They taste like they come from a boxed cake mix with little effort. I followed the recipe exactly. First of all, they didn't rise very much. Secondly, they just don't have that deep, chocoaltey taste like homemade brownies have. If you enjoy store bought baked goods, you will probably like this recipe. If you are an experienced baker, skip this one! None of my family members liked this recipe but they might be spoiled because I never use a boxed mix. I should have followed my instincts! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Given the great reviews, these were very disappointing. As an avid baker, I was hesitant to make something that derived from a box mix and should have trusted my gut. They tasted extremely cheap and artificial (not at all the result I was going for after putting in the time and expense to make them myself, and, even so, I've had much better cheap and artificial brownies. For reference, I followed the recipe to the letter, with the exception of decreasing the amount of caramels used, as per the suggestions of other reviewers. Complete waste of time, money and ingredients. To be honest, I'm a little irked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yes they really are THAT special. Agree with other post, use only 40 or so caramels, lets just say one bag of Kraft caramels, perfect. TRICK is being patient and waiting for them to set up. The refrigerator is your friend. They are tall, and will hold together. Cut them into small pieces, they are super rich. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are really good and moist brownies. Hubby isn't a dessert lover and he had seconds! I only gave it 4 stars because the caramel was overwhelming. (Never thought I'd say too much caramel I will use 40-50 caramel pieces next time and skip the pecans. Then it will be 5 stars for sure!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I need help! I've made this recipe two times. The second time I got it right by default. Followed the recipe to a T. It comes out super gooey and it wasn't until the next day of sitting on counter that the caramel had sort of set and texture was stiff enough to enjoy all of the layers. Is that anyone else's experience? So now I'm thinking to make it at night for next day's consumption. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe last nite and it came out perfect! I use caramel ice cream syrup and mixed it with condense milk, bring to boil and constantly stir until thickened. I use parchment paper to keep brownies from sticking. I also placed top layer of brownie in the freezer to make it easier to work with while making the caramel sauce, This recipe is simple and easy, Will be making this a family tradition. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I never, ever, ever use cake mixes, until this recipe. I bake, so there's no need. But this episode of her show was football-themed, and my beloved Ducks were gearing up to with the Fiesta Bowl, so I needed a good dessert. She had me at thick, gooey layer of caramel. It was very easy, however, instead of trying to fashion a top layer, I broke that half of the batter into small chunks and distributed them over the chips and caramel. Worked great! Everyone loved these, including me : item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were GREAT! Didn't see any clothes flying off anybody, but everybody (6 said delicious &amp; yummy all around. Made/baked night before, kept in refrig &amp; removed about ½ hour before serving. Variances/critiques: NOTE: 1/2C evap. milk &amp; 1/3C evap. milk DIVIDED. Bought 2nd bag of caramels to meet 60 req., but honestly–a whole bag of Kraft caramels is plenty. I had difficulty placing the 2nd layer atop the first. I used a 2nd pan lined with plastic wrap to press out the top half. May have had better luck if I’d had the patience to chill &amp; firm in the refrig/freezer before placing atop the 1st half. I cut it into thirds which let the caramel to leak up through the cracks-not as pretty but no harm. I greased (but forgot to flour the pan &amp; the result was the baked result CLUNG to the pan for dear life–so don’t forget that part! Will definitely make again &amp; consider adding some orange marmalade to the caramel for a different twist! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Dear Pioneer Woman, I was ambivalent about these brownies. I was longing so hard that they might turn out wonderful as it looked like when you made them.. My german chocolate mix was not enough for the 2nd layer..so I opened up a 2nd box of duncan hines brownie mix and used it as the 2nd layer. I put it in the fridge overnight and it turned out HARD.. maybe bc i refrigerated it too much.. I was disappointed that it didn't turn out stellar bc of the money and time I put into it.. but no biggie, bc my nieces are enjoying them! : item not reviewed by moderator and published

Maybe you could try Kraft caramel bits, if they're available in your area (I purchased mine at a walmart in western new york). It's an 11 oz. bag of caramel pea-sized balls that are unwrapped. You would just have to do the conversion for how many bags would equal the 60 caramels called for in this recipe. My guess would be 2 bags.
