36 brownies


  • 1 14 ounce package vanilla caramels, unwrapped

  • 1 12 ounce can evaporated milk

  • 1 package 2-layer-size German chocolate cake mix

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 cup milk chocolate pieces

  • 1 cup flaked coconut

  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Grease foil; set pan aside. In a medium saucepan cook and stir caramels and 1/2 cup of the evaporated milk over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl stir together cake mix, melted butter, and the remaining evaporated milk. Spread 2 cups of the batter in the prepared baking pan. Bake for 7 minutes (cake layer will not be baked through). Pour caramel mixture over partially baked layer. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces and coconut. Spoon small mounds of the remaining batter over layers in pan. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut brownies out of pan. Cut into bars.
