2 Shawnee Mills Fudge Brownie Mixes
1 Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake Mix
1 ½ c. water
10 Tbsp. Braum's unsalted butter, melted, cooled
5 Braum's eggs
½ c. Griffin's shredded coconut
¾ c. mixed nuts, rough chopped
½ c. Braum's caramel topping
½ c. Braum's Hot Fudge topping (warmed 10 seconds in microwave)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the dry cake mix and dry brownie mixes. Add the water, melted butter and eggs, mix well with electric mixer. Prepare a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place 2/3 of the batter in the cake pan. Sprinkle with coconut and nuts, then drizzle the caramel over the top. By small teaspoons drop the hot fudge to create little pockets of chocolate. The remaining batter is spooned over the top; there is no need to spread this, as it will squish together as it bakes. Place into preheated oven and bake for 44 to 48 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. The cake will rise nicely in the oblong pan, so the serving sizes will be large. This cake will serve 12 to 16.
Optional: Garnish lightly with powdered sugar, or Braum's whipped topping, or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
