I’m not sure I’ll ever make these, but I’m clearing off the counter and want some way to save this recipe that Fay brought home a while ago.  She brought the leftovers home, too, and they’re scrumptious brownies.  I just don’t normally make things from cake mixes, nor do I care to melt caramels.  However, I can always change my mind!!

Chocolate Caramel Turtle Bars

1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
2/3 evaporated milk
1/2 pound caramels
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Mix 1 box German chocolate cake mix with melted butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Spread 2/3 of the batter
in a large brownie pan and bake 5 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Meanwhile melt caramels with 1/3 cup
evaporated milk in a skillet over low heat. Remove the partially baked cake mixture and pour the caramel
mixture evenly over it. Sprinkle pecans over the caramel mixture. Then sprinkle chocolate chips over the pecans.
Place the rest of the batter over the chocolate chips by half teaspoonfuls evenly over the whole pan. Return to
the oven for 20 minutes. Cool thoroughly and cut into small bars. These freeze and mail well.
