{ Knock You Naked Brownies }

These are to die for! Pioneer Woman’s Knock You Naked Brownies!  I would describe these as a brownie-meets-caramel-candy bar! Here is my version with just a couple small tweaks!

{ ingredients }

  • 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
  • 1 bag caramel bits
  • 1/4 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Mini Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

{ directions }

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, chopped pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, and melted butter until combined. Mixture will be very thick, don’t add any other liquid!
  3. Press half the mixture into a greased 9 x 9 inch square baking pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside.
  4. Follow direction on the bag and 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.
  5. Place parchment paper on your work surface and put the other half of the brownie dough on top. Use your hands to press it into a large square the size of the squarepan. You can use a spatula to remove it or lift the parchment paper and place on top and peel off the paper, then set it on top of the caramel and chocolate chips in the square pan.
  6. Bake for another 20 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. Cut into twelve helpings, and carefully remove from the pan.
  7. Enjoy! Yum!

Makes about 12 brownies.
