Ingredients:  
60 light caramels
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 package German Chocolate Cake mix
3/4 c. butter or margarine melted
1/3 c. evaporated milk
1 c. chopped nuts
1 c. semi-sweet chocholate chips

Directions:
Directions:
In a heavy saucepan combine the unwrapped caramels and 1/2 c. evaporated milk. Cook over low heat stirring constantly until the caramels are melted. Set aside. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, melted butter, 1/3 c. evaporated milk and nuts. Dough will be thick like cookie dough, not runny like a cake! Press just one-half of the dough into the pan. Reserve the rest for topping. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

Remove from oven, sprinkle chocolate chips over baked crust. (I usually use a little more than 1 cup). Spread caramel mixture over the chocolate chips. Now crumble the rest of the dough over the caramel layer. Return to oven and bake for another 18-20 minutes. Cool slightly, then refrigerate about 30 minutes to set the caramel.

Cut into bars - as big or small as you like. Enjoy!!
