Knock You Naked Brownies

These brownies are to die for.  They have all of the essential elements for a great dessert; chocolate, gooey caramel and nuts.
Mix German Chocolate cake mix, pecans, evaporated milk and melted butter.  Mix well.  Dough will be thick.  Spread half in the bottom of greased 9x9 pan.  Bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place caramels in heat-proof bowl over a pan of simmering water.  Let melt until smooth.
 Remove brownie crust and let cool while caramels are melting.
 Pour caramel over brownie crust.
 Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot caramel.
 Press remaining dough into a square just smaller than the pan.
 Place in pan over chocolate chips. 
 Bake 20-25 minutes.
 Let cool completely.

Be prepared to be "knocked naked".  Yum.

*Pioneer Woman
  • 1 box (18.5 Ounce) German Chocolate Cake Mix 
  • 1 cup Finely Chopped Pecans
  • 1/3 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk (additional)
  • 1/2 cup Butter, Melted
  • 60 whole Caramels, Unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, chopped pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, and melted butter. Stir together until totally combined. Mixture will be very thick.
Press half the mixture into a well-greased 9 x 9 inch square baking pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside.
In a double boiler (or a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water) melt caramels with additional 1/2 cup evaporated milk. When melted and combined, pour over brownie base. Sprinkle chocolate chips as evenly as you can over the caramel.
Turn out remaining brownie dough on work surface. Use your hands to press it into a large square a little smaller than the pan. Use a spatula to remove it from the surface, then set it on top of the caramel and chocolate chips.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for several hours. When ready to serve, generously sift powdered sugar over the surface of the brownies. *Please note:  I omitted the powdered sugar.
Cut into either nine or twelve helpings, and carefully remove from the pan.
*Adapted from the classic "Knock You Naked Brownies" recipe, based on a dessert at the Salt Creek Steakhouse in Breckenridge. These brownies don't really knock you naked...but almost.
