Caramel Brownies

These brownies are a great and easy treat for the caramel lovers in your life!

1 package German Chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup margarine, melted
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 package (14 ounces) caramels
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and butter. Spread half of this mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray or has been lined with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Melt caramels in remaining evaporated milk over very low heat or according to directions on package of caramels. Pour caramel mixture over cake and then pour chocolate chips over caramel layer. Pour pecans over chocolate chips. Press remaining cake mix on top. Bake for 18 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

TIP OF THE DAY: If you are in a pinch for time, you can use either a jar of caramel topping or the new caramel bits instead of the traditional caramels.
