Caramel Oreo Brownies


Caramel and Oreos and Chocolate,
OH MY!

Let's just stuff every yummy ingredient
we can think of into the middle of
double chocolatey brownies and let
the yumminess begin.

My sister in law Michele had made
these and though I didn't get one of
hers, I took it on my sister Jean's word
that I had to try these.  

Yup!  They were right.  

These are amazing and not
as rich as I thought (meaning, I
could eat more than one - no problem!)

The batter made from a cake mix is
stuffed with chocolate chips and after
a little baking is topped with Oreos and
caramel and then more batter.  
What more needs to be said???

Caramel Oreo Brownies
(Very slight variation from Easy Baked)

1 pkg. Chocolate Cake Mix
(I like Betty Crocker's Triple Chocolate)
1/3 C. oil
2 eggs
1 12 oz. pkg. milk chocolate chips
1 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

24 Double Stuffed Oreos

32 unwrapped Kraft Caramels
1/2 C. butter
1 14 oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk

Line a 9x13 inch pan with foil (if
you don't do this, you will have a hard 
time with the caramel sticking to the sides).
Spray the bottom with oil.

Heat oven to 350.

In a large mixer bowl mix the cake mix,
oil and 2 eggs until blended.  Stir in the
chocolate chips.

Place half of the batter into the bottom
of the prepared pan.  It won't completely cover
the bottom of the pan but it will fill in as it
bakes.  Bake this for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile place the caramels, butter
and the sweetened condensed milk (minus
1 T.) in a saucepan and melt the caramels.
Stir constantly until melted and smooth.

Remove the pan from the oven and place
24 Oreos on the top of the baked cookies.
Now pour the caramel over the cookies.
Finish by topping the pan with the remaining
batter.  You need to take small amounts
and flatten them out in your hands to try
and cover as much of the top as you can.  
Spray your hands with oil as needed.
Bake for 25 minutes.

Let cool in the pan.  When cool, lift the foil out
of the pan and peel it away from the edges,
then cut into squares.  I cut mine into 24
pieces.  These really cut best if you let them
cool overnight, but sometimes you just can't
wait that long.
Cut into 24 squares.



We have already made these twice
and I have people asking for more!  
They were fabulous!!

I will be posting with

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  10. Jacqueline,
    I made these last week while I was in Provo and made them Gluten Free! They were sooooo yummy! The were a hit at the Friday night viewing of the BYU opening football game and I am going to make them again soon! A GF cake mix is always more dry than a Wheat flour cake mix, so I had to add extra moisture. We did add another egg and the rest of the additional moisture was in the form of....get this....Mrs. Richardsons's Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream topping! It was excellent! I was so proud of me, I waited overnight to cut and eat any of these. There were wonderful! We called them Mudpie you can hold in your hand. That is what they reminded me of. Thanks for sharing. I decided I need to make desserts more often, like you do, then just have a piece and give away the rest, telling myself that there is certainly more where that came from.
    hugs,
    Betsy
