  • 2Combine caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted.
  • 3Combine dry cake mix, margarine, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and nuts. By hand, stir until dough holds together. Dough will be thick. Press half of the dough into pan.
  • 4Bake for 6 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips over baked crust. Spread caramel mixture over chips. Crumble remaining dough over caramel mixture. Bake 15-18 minutes.
  • 5Cool slightly. Then refrigerate about 30 minutes to set caramel. Cut into small pieces and store in a cool place. Serve at room temperature so the caramel is soft.
