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.

    Hi Robin – Question about this recipe: do you add the ingredients included in the directions for the cake mix – or just the dry cake mix alone? Thanks!

    I first found this recipe on pioneer woman:)

    I have made these numerous times and they taste INCREDIBLE when you use red velvet cake mix and white chocolate chips. Also, confetti cake with chocolate chips was pretty good too. I even put a layer of nutella on the red velvet ones. Incredible.
