I took one bite of these brownies and lost consciousness…
In the blackness, my eyes focus upon a dark mountain stacked with rocky chunks of chocolate. A river of fudge syrup flows through fields of chocolate blossoms, extending as far as I can see. There is nothing but the pounding of sweet, decadent chocolate coursing through my veins, beckoning me farther and deeper into an entire land filled with chocolate. Ahhh…the adventures I could have here. The aroma gives way to pure bliss. Total relaxation. Divine *tug* Mmmm… *tug* happiness *tug*
Unfortunately, the tugging of my two-year old forced me out of my chocolate stupor and back to my slightly-less- chocolate-filled-life. I made these brownies last Saturday as a gift for my brother-in-law. His birthday was this week and he loves Riesens.
So, I did a little research and found this absolutely delectable recipe which just happened to be graced with not one but two entire packages of Riesens.
The look of sheer pain on my husband’s face when I told him that these brownies were for his brother and that he couldn’t eat any was positively heart breaking. Luckily, when I packaged them up on Sunday, there were a few left for us to taste (read devour) and I must say they were positively earth-shattering.
I urge you to try them as soon as humanly possible. In the brownie world, I dare say, they are a game changer.
- 1 box German or chocolate cake mix
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 2/3 cup evaporated milk, divided
- 2 packages Riesen candies
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

These are amazing! We cut them and put them in the freezer and they were heavenly chewy deliciousness. 2 days after I made them I went out to sneak one myself and the container was empty….gremlins…:)

Oh my goodness! Funny how those gremlins always get the good loot! 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed them.
Do I combine the cake mix and the cake mix ingredients or do I just use the powder part of the cake mix?
Hi Rebekah! It’s just the cake mix – powder part of the mix. 😊
Okay, thank you very much.
I wonder how big the packages were in the recipe? My bag is 30 ounces.
Hi Ila! I used (2) 9 oz bags which equals about 56 pieces of the Riesen candy. I will update this post with those details. Thank you so much for your message!
Oh my, made these for the super bowl 2014… they were awesome and delicious!!
Lissa – I am so glad you liked them!
