Olson's famous caramel brownies

are you ready for the most delicious brownies of all time?  

this is a famous recipe in my family so use it wisely.  you will get many many requests for these puppies!

you will need:

1 (18 oz) package of German chocolate cake mix                            1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 (6 oz) package of chocolate chips                                                  3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

combine the cake mix, butter and evaporated milk.  do not make the cake mix like it states on the box, completely ignore that.  spread half of the mixture in a lightly greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes.  my oven takes 8 minutes but it's old and lame.  you don't need it to be fully cooked, you will be baking again later.  once out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips and nuts on top.  we are not nut people so we always skip that.  

next step!  you will need:

50 caramels                           1/3 cup evaporated milk

we use those square caramels that are individually wrapped so find a small child to unwrap them. that's what my mom always did.  melt the caramels in the evaporated milk, once smooth, drizzle over the chocolate chips and nuts.  crumble the remaining cake mixture on top.  bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

make sure to let them cool fully before cutting otherwise it's a crazy mess!
