Bloggy Friend Jean's Chocolate Carmel Bars!
50 light caramels (about 1 lbs) I just use one bag of the kraft caramel squares.
1/3 cup evaporated milk (by the 5 oz size can)
1 box German Chocolate cake mix (Duncan Hines)
1/3 cup melted butter
(1 cup nuts- optional) We do not put the nuts in- don't like them.
1 - 12 oz pkg choc. chips
Combine caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Melt them and set aside.
Combine cake mix, butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk.
Grease and flour you 9 x 13 pan.
Pat in 1/2 of the batter into you greased and floured pan (your hands will get messy). Bake this for 6 minutes.
Take out of oven and pour on the chocolate chips evenly. Then pour on the caramel mixture.
Pat the remaining batter over the caramel layer. (sprinkle nuts on top - optional)
Bake 15 to 18 minutes at 350 degrees (sorry I left this out earlier- don't you just hate it when people do that too you with recipes!! ;-)
Cool slightly and place in the refrig. to set the caramels.
