Caramel Nut Brownies

Although this recipe calls for a cake mix, these are probably the best brownies I have ever made! The top and bottom layers have a german chocolate cake mix while the filling has caramel, chocolate, and nuts.

If you like really gooey brownies, bake these for less time. If you like a firmer brownie, bake these for a few minutes longer. I like to bake these for the time listed in the recipe (15-18 minutes) so they are firm enough to easily cut, but are still gooey. Either way, these are delicious!

1 package Kraft caramels 
5 ounce can evaporated milk
1 German Chocolate cake mix 
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350˚F. 
Melt the caramels and half of the evaporated milk in a double broiler. 
Combine the cake mix, butter, and the remaining evaporated milk. Place half of this mixture in an 8 x 8 inch pan. Bake 6 minutes. 
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and chopped nuts. 
Evenly spread the melted caramel mixture over top. Pat the rest of the dough over the caramels until the caramel is covered. 
Bake 15-18 minutes.
