Brownie Caramel Bars

I was in the mood for something gooey + caramel.  I know  these aren't great for the ol' fillings, but  i had some Kraft caramels and needed to use them up. I've had this recipe for awhile and see it posted on some other delicious recipe sites/blogs.  Its very easy, but i had to keep mine in the fridge and i would be certain
to spray the pan w/ Pam to help with getting these babies out of the pan. If you like caramel, you will
enjoy this recipe.!

1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup melted butter

1-13oz pkg Kraft Caramels (around 50)
1/3 cup evaporated milk

1 cup of Milk Choc Chips

1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Stir together your dry cake mix, melted butter and evaporated milk.
(don't be afraid to use your hands to get it all mixed.) Press half of this mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x 13 pan. Bake for approx 6 min.

2) Melt your unwrapped caramels in a medium sauce pan with 1/3 cup evaporated milk over medium heat.
Set this aside.

3) Take your milk choc chips and sprinkle them over your baked crust. Drizzle the caramel mixture over
the milk choc chips. Sprinkle (can use your hands to crumble) the other half of the cake mixture on top of
the caramel. Bake for approx 16-18 min.  Let cool completely. Can refrigerate to set, then cut up into small
squares. These are gooey and very rich w/ a hint of the German Chocolate Cake flavor.
