Place chocolate cake mix, melted butter, and 1/3 cup evaporated milk in large mixer. Beat at high speed until well mixed.

Save remaining evaporated milk to combine with caramels.

Place half the chocolate cake mixture in a greased 13x9 pan and press well into bottom. Bake in preheated 350 oven for six minutes and cool to room temperature.

Unwrap caramels and place in heavy saucepan with remaining evaporated milk; stir over medium heat until smooth.

Pour evenly over baked and cooled chocolate mixture. Spread with spatula to cover all of chocolate.

Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until the surface is no longer as glossy as it was. Cool in pan on rack and then cut into bars.
