Gooey-Layered Baby Ruth Brownies are a perfect creepy, crawly Halloween treat or just great for a special surprise dessert.
- 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) chocolate cake mix
- 1 cup chopped peanuts
- 1 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, divided

- 2 pkgs. (1.5 oz. each) gummy bugs
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
COMBINE cake mix and peanuts in large bowl. Stir in 2/3 cup evaporated milk and butter (batter will be thick). Spread half of batter into ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan (layer will be thin).
BAKE for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chopped Baby Ruth and remaining 1/3 cup evaporated milk in small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Drizzle over brownie base to within 1/2-inch of edge.

A Big Hit
I made these brownies for my family, and they were a huge hit. I left off the gummy sweet tarts. Very easy to mix up and bake.
