Caramel Brownies

Here's how to make the caramel brownies:

First of all melt 3/4 cup butter in the microwave.

Combine the melted butter, 1/2 cup evaporated milk and a Swiss Chocolate (or German Chocolate) cake mix in your super cool stand mixer until well blended.*

Take half of the cake mixture and press it into a 13x9 inch pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake it at 350ยบ for 6 minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven, sprinkle one package of milk chocolate chips on the brownies and place the pan back in the oven for approximately 2 minutes.  Remove from oven and spread the chocolate chips evenly.  

Pour 1 and 1/2 packages caramels (melted either in the microwave or double boiler with 1/3 cup evaporated milk) over the top of the milk chocolate.

Press the remainder of the cake mix between wax paper (or cling wrap).

Until it is a thin layer.

Cover the entire caramel layer with the cake mix.

Bake entire thing for an additional 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let it sit for as long as possible (at the very least 30 minutes).  Because you've used the parchment paper you can lift the entire thing out of the pan and then use a pizza cutter to slice it all up into small squares.  Yum!

*The beater on my blender started to get this grey dust on it.  I couldn't wash it off.  It was almost other worldly.  So I went online and found this great beater replacement that does a MUCH better job of getting to the bottom of the bowl.  I don't have to scrape the bowl half way through the mixing process.  Recommended.
