Crazy good brownie deliciousness...

Anyone else need a little chocolate this week? Well, these brownies are way more than a little chocolate. These brownies might just turn your day completely around, or at least be a ridulously good ending to one! I watched Pioneer Woman make these on her Food Network show, and oh-my-goodness... I was drooling. I brought these to our small group and they were devoured.

Here's the lineup...

"Knock You Naked Brownies"                                                    Pioneer Woman

1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix (I Used Duncan Hines like PW)
1 cup Chopped Pecans
1/3 cup + 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup Butter (melted)
60 whole Caramels
1/3 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

First you'll preheat the oven to 350 and get to unwrapping those caramels! 

Grab your mixer and toss in the cake mix, pecans, 1/3 of the evaporated milk, and melted butter.

Press half of that mixture into a 9x9 pan and bake it for 10min.

Meanwhile... get those caramels and the other 1/2 cup of evaporated milk over a double boiler. I don't have one of those, so I just put a glass bowl, slightly larger than the small pan of boiling water. It'll take a while for all the caramels to melt... just keep stirring and thinking about the deliciousness you're about to experience.

When it's all smooth and melted, pour it over the first layer of brownie and sprinkle your chocolate chips all over that.

Roll out the second half of the dough and using the flattest, largest spatula you've got, transfer it onto your caramel. I just sort of pinched it together until it created a smooth, flat layer.

Bake for another 20 min and then let it rest at room temperature for an hour or so and then refridgerate it for another couple hours. Sprinkle it generously with powdered sugar and use a hot knife to cut and serve!

pretty picture of a single brownie could be taken }
