Knock You Naked Brownies

I came across this recipe today while perusing my Google Reader, specifically the Pioneer Woman's blog.  I love that blog.  I must admit, the title caught my attention.  As I read through the directions and saw PW's pictures, I knew that one would not literally become disrobed, but they seemed divine!  So, I made them.

A few of my pictures are here, but to get the full effect and fanstastic step-by-step instructrions, go HERE to PW's post.  Note:  I eliminated the nuts and added more chocolate chips.  That's how I roll.

KYN Brownies


1 box German Chocolate Cake mix
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/3 cups evaporated milk
1/2 cups evaporated milk (additional)
1/2 cups butter, melted
60 whole caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, chopped pecans, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, and melted butter. Stir together until totally combined. Mixture will be very thick.

Press half the mixture into a well-greased 9 x 9 inch square baking pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside.

In a double boiler (or a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water) melt caramels with additional 1/2 cup evaporated milk. When melted and combined, pour over brownie base. Sprinkle chocolate chips as evenly as you can over the caramel.

Turn out remaining brownie dough on work surface. Use your hands to press it into a large square a little smaller than the pan. Use a spatula to remove it from the surface, then set it on top of the caramel and chocolate chips.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for several hours. When ready to serve, generously sift powdered sugar over the surface of the brownies. Cut into either nine or twelve helpings, and carefully remove from the pan.

  1. Funny, we've had this recipe in our family for years- came from a hilarious lady in our ward when I was growing up. She used to refer to it as "Homemade Sin", which is what we still call them. PS- I love the PW blog also!
