Delicious brownies to share with your loved one this Valentine's day!
  • 1 box (18.5 Ounce) of cake mix (I used Devil's Food)
  • 1 cup Finely Chopped Pecans (or walnuts)
  • ⅓ cup Evaporated Milk
  • ½ cup Evaporated Milk (additional)
  • ½ cup Butter, Melted
  • 60 whole Caramels, Unwrapped
  • ⅓ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cake mix, chopped nuts, ⅓ cup evaporated milk, and melted butter in large bowl.Stir together until totally combined. Mixture will be very thick.
  3. Press half of your 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.
  4. In a double boiler (or a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water) melt caramels with additional ½ cup evaporated milk. When melted and combined, pour over brownie base. Sprinkle chocolate chips as evenly as you can over the caramel.
  5. 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. (For this part, my half of the dough was not as stiff as it, perhaps, should have been, due to a warm kitchen. My one piece happened to be a few, and a little messier, but it cooked together pretty well, and was delicious nonetheless!
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature, before covering and refrigerating for several hours. When ready to serve, cut into squares and carefully remove from the pan. If desired, heat the brownies slightly, and serve with your favourite sides, or eat them on their own!
