Chocolate and Caramel Squares

This recipe is what I refer to a short-cut dessert. It helps that it starts with pre-bought items that give you a head start. Making delicious sweet recipes "from Scratch" are the way I love to do it but when there is not enough time to get it all done I believe it is ok to cheat. This delicious shortcut dessert will not disappoint anyone and make them wonder how I did it all with such little time

5 oz evaporated milk
14 oz pkg of caramels
1 pkg of German Chocolate or Devils Food Cake mix, pudding-included
1 cup chopped nuts
1/2 butter, softened
1 cup chocolate chips

Heat unwrapped caramels and evaporated milk (reserve 2 tbsps for later) over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat. In a separate bowl, combine cake mix, nuts, butter, and reserved 2 tbsps of evaporated milk. Mix well until crumbly then press half of the dough mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Set aside the rest of the dough for later. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the partially baked crust. Carefully spoon caramel mixture over chocolate chips. Crumble reserved dough mixture over caramel and chocolate chips. Return to oven and bake 15 -20 more minutes. Cool completely and cut in bars.
