OK, Here is my favorite brownie recipe.  I have been using it for years, and everytime I make it I get raves and the brownies disappear very quickly.

                                                                 TURTLE BROWNIES
1 bag Kraft Caramels (14 oz)
2/3 cup Evaporated milk. divided
1 package German Chocolate Cake Mix (18 oz)
3/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 (12 oz) package Semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine caramels (unwrapped) and 1/3 cup evaporated milk in top of double boiler over hot boiling water, or in a heavy saucepan.  Stir until melted
Combine cake mix, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and butter  or margarine.  Cut in like pie crust until dough holds together.
Press 1/2 of dough into a greased 9x13" pan and bake 6 minutes at 350 degrees.
Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips
Pour caramel mixture over and spread evenly.  Crumble remaining dough evenly over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18 min.    Cool completely, and cut into squares.

In Response to Re: BROWNIE RECIPE COLLECTION : To use an often used phrase: OMG!!! 7 pounds of almond paste! take me there! I will have to check out the GFS here.  And I thought I found a good deal at the store the other day a 1 pound plastic wrapped package of almond paste in the refrigerated section for less than the cost of a 7 ounce can that is in the baking aisle.  I will have to make a stop at GFS on Wednesday while I am on my way to the dentist. (anyone see the irony here?) I also have a love of shortbread cookies and crusts.  The almond flavor just lends itself well to that type of preparation. And Raspberry and Almond do go well together...ok I will admit that there is not much that I won't eat almond with!

Nikki,  I went to Gordon Food Service in Holland, MI. There are a lot of Dutch people and I am one of them.
There was only 1 container of the almond paste on the shelf so I asked the lady who does all of the
ordering when they would get more in. She said it was a seasonal item and they would get more in
closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was on the inventory and order sheet so I know you can get them
to order.  I paid $37.95 a container which is 7 pounds. Dutch people make a lot of banket and banket bars.
I can't get it in CA at all so I get it from the Amish in IN and in MI in some stores. You pay up the nose for
in the stores and they are only 6 to 8 ounces. I was really happy to find it all GFS. I hope that they have it
in stock when you go there.  Good Luck!!!

Carol, thanks for the "heads up" in that it is a seasonal item.  If I don't find it I will be sure to ask and make sure that they will order.  I did see on the web site that not all GFS carry all items so it will be interesting to see if they carry it.
The Meijer  in Lake In The Hills  (Illinois) has the plastic wrapped Almond paste and as I recall it was a 1 pound package.  Pretty sure it was around $5.00 for the 1 pound package. So pretty close to what you paid.  I just don't know if Meijers has it all the time as I saw it for the first time just a week or two ago.
Happy baking!!
(Just the smell of the almond paste is a pleasure.)

Susan, of course we want the rest of the brownie recipes.  As someone said "too many brownie recipes?"  I don't think so.

Nikki,  I have got some almond paste before from Meijers in Holland and it was more than
$5.00 for 8 oz.  That's great if you can get it for $5.00 a pound.  I agree that the smell of
almond paste is a pleasure!!! I have the urge to make banket bars now!! lol lol

Carol, several times you have mentioned "Blanket Bars".  Please share with me what are blanket bars?
Is it a shortbread?  And would you share?

Nikki                      Banket Bars
8 oz. almond paste
1 cup(2 sticks) butter or marg.
2 eggs
2 cups white sugar
2 cups flour
dash of salt
Beat with mixer almond paste and butter, add eggs, and then add
the sugar, flour and salt. Put in 9x13 greased pan and bake at 300
degrees for approx. 40 min.  Cool and cut into pieces. Enjoy!!!
Note: can add sliced almonds on top before baking. I usually add
more almond paste because I love the taste.

All the bakeries in Holland, MI always have banket bars or long
skinny rolls of it.  This is something that Dutch people really love!

Carol, Now I know why they are called Blanket Bars...because you want to take them all and hide under a blanket and eat them all by yourself.
The only thing that could possibly make them any better would be a layer of chocolate over the top. Or getting "fancy" dip half into chocolate once they are cut.
Thank you ...you have added to a weight problem but thank you just the same.Wink
