Servings 20


  • 50 Kraft caramels
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 box German chocolate cake mix
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 7x11-inch baking dish.
  • Place caramels in a medium saucepan with 1/3 a cup of evaporated milk. Heat over low heat, stirring continuously, until caramels are completely melted and mixture is smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, 1/3 cup of evaporated milk, melted butter and nuts.
    Spread half the mixture in the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crust. Pour the caramel mixture on top and then scatter the remaining cake mixture evenly on top of the caramel.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. It will still look underdone in the middle but as the caramel cools, it will firm up. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
