Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 bag (14 ounces) Kraft caramels
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
3/4 cup melted margarine
1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a microwave safe bowl, place unwrapped caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Microwave on high, stirring occasionally until melted. Combine dry cake mix, melted margarine, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and nuts. Stir by hand until the dough holds together. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of a 9x13-inch ungreased pan. Save 1/3 of the dough. Bake for 6 minutes. As soon as cake is done, sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Then, pour melted caramel all over the top. Crumble reserved dough over caramel. Dough will be tacky, so pull it apart. Bake an additional 15-18 minutes. Let cool. This can be placed in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set caramel if desired.
