My Favorite Brownie Recipe!

The official name for these brownies are the “Better than Sex Brownies”. We make them all year long for all special occasions and my friends beg for the recipe! If you’d like to add some festive color, ¬†you can substitute the chocolate chips with Nestle Holiday Swirl Morsels. They’re white chocolate chips swirled with red and green!


Better Than Sex Brownies


  • 1 boxed German Chocolate cake mix
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • One 14 oz bag of caramels (unwrapped!)
  • 2/3 Cup evaporated milk (divided into two 1/3 cup amounts)
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips (or holiday morsels)


  1. Grease and flour 9×13 pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, melted butter, and 1/3 Cup evaporated milk. Spread half of the cake mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 6 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, melt unwrapped caramels in a saucepan with 1/3 Cup evaporated milk.
  4. After baking for 6 minutes, remove the pan of brownie batter from the oven. Pour melted caramel mixture over the half baked brownie batter. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Then spoon on the remaining raw brownie batter. Don’t try to spread it, just dollop it on.
  5. Bake for 18-20 more minutes or until the edges look done. The middle might look wet because of the caramel.
  6. Cool completely before cutting and serving. I recommend refrigerating before cutting. It makes them harder to cut because the caramel will be cold, but you will end up with much neater squares when the caramel isn’t gooey.
