That’s what these brownies will do to you- Knock You Naked. If you have seen the Italian Job- new version- you may remember at the end when the nerdy guy Lyle or the Napster created stereo speakers strong enough to blow a girl’s clothes off, well these brownies are like that. These rich, gooey, brownies are filled with chocolate chips and caramel. I made them for my children’s teachers for Valentine’s Day. Let’s hope they don’t try them in school though. I can see the headlines now. Christian School Teacher Eats Brownie During Recess and Clothes Fly Off. I’ll warn them to eat theirs at home and heaven forbid not at a stop light on the way.

I found these very sophisticated and romantic square plates which I thought would hold two of my giant brownies perfectly. Wouldn’t you like to eat a decadent brownie off a Paris scene plate? Me too.

The plated brownies were wrapped in cellophane and secured with some curling ribbon. Perfect for an intimate and romantic evening.

Knock You Nakeds
14 ounce bag Kraft Caramels
1/3 cup evaporated milk

1 Devil’s Food cake mix
1/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan very, very well. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl mix 1/3 cup milk, butter, and cake mix. Spread half of the mixture in the bottom of baking pan. Batter will be thick. Bake 7 minutes. While the batter is baking melt caramels and 1/3 cup milk together over medium heat on your cook top. Stir constantly. Pour over baked bottom layer of brownie. Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips. Sprinkle with the rest of the batter. Bake 15-17 more minutes. Brownies will look set on top but still a little soft. Do not over cook, they are to be gooey! Cool completely before cutting. Makes 12 large brownies.

    Oh, Robin, I’d love to try those for my next get family together, but the thought of getting arrested for indecent exposure, not to mention, blinding members of my family is something none of us are ready for.
    But, they look so good. Maybe, I’ll just bake them, and eat them in the privacy of my walk-in closet.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Oh Anna Sophia, you are so sophisticated. I LOVE the plates with the brownie squares wrapped in little papers and then tied up in cellophane with a bow. The teachers are going to love them!

    oh good…now I don’t feel so HORRIBLE about saying my “adult” sons (who are nice productive men with families) say “nipple cookies” when talking about the Peanut Blossoms.
    The brownies look well….like they could knock my socks off.

    So what you’re saying is these are “eat in the privacy of your own home” brownies…

    Thatgirl–it is probably better that way since I am guessing it is hard not to eat the whole pan. 😉 Which one would not want to do in public.

    The inclusion of condensed milk is a good indication that these are scrumptious!
