A dessert of double layer chocolate caramel brownies can satisfy any mother's day sweet tooth, and be a pleasant surprise for an afternoon snack.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 14 ounces caramel
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • Another 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

First, put the caramels and the half cup of evaporated milk into a bowl and heat in the microwave until the caramels are melted (but before they start to scorch). Heat the oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Next, melt your butter in the microwave and mix it together with the cake mix, the rest of the evaporated milk and the pecans.

When the oven is ready, bake half of the batter for 8 minutes. Once done, the chocolate chips can be spread over the top and the caramel poured over that. The rest of the cake mix can then be added, and all of it baked again for another 20 minutes.

Once cool, mom and company can dig in.
