Bit of Heaven

I was in charge of dessert at the 4th of July BBQ.

I whipped up my mom's brownie recipe - which are really good!

(And I don't even like brownies.)

I had 5 people ask me for the recipe so I promised I would blog it!

Here you go!

Bit of Heaven
(Taste best if made 24 hours ahead)

  • 1 Pkg German chocolate cake mix

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/3 cup canned milk (not sweetened condensed)

  • 1 egg

Beat these ingredients together and spread half of the mixture in a greased 9x13 pan. It will be very thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes.

  • 1 Pkg. Kraft carmels (35)

  • 1/3 cup canned milk

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped nuts, pecans or walnuts (optional)

In a small pan, melt the carmel over med/low heat. Add 1/3 cup canned milk. Spread the carmel mixture over baked mix, then sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips & 1 cup chopped nuts over the carmel.

Dot the rest of the cake mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. (After 5 minutes, open oven & spread softened cake mix around to cover the top.)

I don't remember Mom ever making brownies, but these sound good.
