"This is a very easy recipe and very popular. The recipe came from a neighbor who brought it to our annual 4th of July picnic."

1 (18.25 ounce) package
German chocolate cake mix with pudding
individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
semi-sweet chocolate chips
These are the best brownies you'll ever eat. However, if you use wrapped caramels instead of caramel sauce, it is easier to melt them in a bowl in a microwave for the sake of cleanup. Just stir every few minutes until smooth.
These were WAY too rich for me....though my son loved them.
I love this receipe, but I use caramel topping instead of the individual caramels. I spread it on the brownie part after it comes out of the oven.Then I sprinkle the chocolate chips over the topping. Continue with the rest of the instructions.
These was AWESOME!! Rich, oooey and gooey! The only change I made to this recipe was to substitute ground walnuts in place of chopped pecans (for the kids). In my opinion, this recipe was more time consuming than many brownie recipes. Make sure to cool bars completely, cut into small pieces and have LOTS of milk nearby!! The only thing I will do differently next time is to melt the caramel in a glass bowl over pan with boiling water (double broiler effect). The caramel made a mess out of my pot. I had to put water in the pot and heat to get all the caramel out. However, the preparation and clean up was WORTH every bite!
I made this recipe with brownie mix instead of the cake mix and just made the brownies as the package indicates. Then I made the caramel brownie recipe as it instructs. It turned moist and ooy gooey yummy!
These are always wonderful. Devil's Food cake mix can be subbed in for the German chocolate and I usually add another cup of chocolate chips to make these extra rich and gooey.
These were wicked gooey and yummy!! I heard the horrors of caramel cleanup so I used the sundae carmel sauce instead of wrapped caramels; in place of nuts I used heath bar pieces from the baking aisle; and Devils Food Cake in place of the recommended one (store didn't carry it). Only thing I would change is use a smaller pan-not the 9x13 because they were very thin and i like my brownies thicker. My students loved them!!
This is one of our favorite recipes but as others have noted, it is quite gooey and can be difficult to clean up after. I found that if you line your pan with parchment paper, it helps immensely. After your brownies are baked, lift up the parchment paper and use a pizza cutter to cut your brownies on a cutting board. Much easier all around!

This chewy "blondie" is still plenty chocolatey, thanks to the chips on top.
