This is by far the best brownie in the world.....if you follow the recipe to the letter, you should not have any problems. Yes, they are rich, but isn't that why we eat dessert anyway?! I have made them THREE times this week for company and my husbands office.
Thanks for sharing.....this is going into my "secret recipe" file!!!
PS......33 INDIVIDUAL CARAMELS IS WHAT YOU NEED:)
The people who liked this recipe must know some secret that isn't included in the recipe directions. These do not cook through in 20 minutes and end up being a mushy mess. I could have cooked them for longer but was afraid to because the cake mix had risen so much it was about to run over the sides or the baking dish. (it later collapsed back down into uncooked mush) Also I would recommend putting the chocolate and caramel on top of all of the cake mix because it's nearly impossible to spread the second layer on top of the gooey caramel and chocolate mixture. I just don't think cake mix was meant to make anything besides cake. This recipe stinks.
I thought the comment by Rubenette was pretty harsh, "this recipe stinks!" Well, I don't know what she did wrong but this recipe is superb!!! Don't be thrown off by the bad comments because these are delicious. It states clearly that if you wait to cut them until they're cool, the mushiness is gone. I found this to be true but it's so hard to wait!!! Great recipe! Give it a whirl! :)
Absolutely delicious. I was hesitant at first to make this recipe because of Karen's comments, but there are a few flaws with her review. One, is that the recipe was too rich for her guests, and two, she does not remark if the recipe was too reach for HER. Anyways, the brownies are delicious. As far as being rich, what do people want? I would rather bite into a brownie that sweeps me off my feet in one bite and satisfies enough to keep from eating them all at once, instead of the brownies that are your everyday run of the mill brownies that you can finish in one sitting because they have the average chocolate taste. These brownies are superb. Don't even listen to Karen. If you do, then add a little vanilla icing to balance the brownie out for a delicious treat. Don't pass this recipe up!!!
decadent and rich, but oh so gooood!
Paul, What kind of baker are you? You take yellow cake mix to make brownies. How dare you? Yellow cake mix is an age old recipe to make cakes, and you abuse this mix by using it in a brownie recipe. By the way, the Brownies were GREAT!!!!
I followed the advice of others and used a 13x9 pan. Wow was this wonderful and super easy to boot.
I have been making bars similar to this for years. I use german chocolate cake mix though. I put mine in a 9 x 13 cake pan and only bake for 15 minutes after adding the top layer of cake batter. It works best to drop by spoonful or flatten in palms and scatter out in pieces on top of the caramel mixture. I always get rave reviews and requests for them.
