Special Brownies

This is one of my all-time favorite desserts. My mom has been making these brownies for as long as I can remember. They are definitely a party pleaser. The name “special brownies” may suggest a different meaning to some people, but that special ingredient isn’t in this recipe—so sorry for the misleading title!

You HAVE to try this recipe!! I’m eating it as I type…and getting caramel on my keyboard. Ooops!!


25 caramels
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
1/3 cup of milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 oz. chocolate chips


Place 25 caramels, 1 can eagle brand milk, and 2 tablespoons of butter in pan. Place on low heat and melt mixture.

Mix German chocolate cake mix, 1/3 cup milk, and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil. Do this mixture instead of the normal ingredients on the cake box. You want to create a brownie mixture rather than a fluffy cake mixture.

Place half of the mixture in a 13×9 cake pan and back for 10 minutes at 350 degrees

Pour the caramel mixture over bottom layer and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Spread second half of the cake mixture on top. You will have to pat it out and place it on top rather than trying to spread with a spoon or knife. Bake again for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.
