These are Richard’s favorite bars. I only make them once a year as they are so rich.


50 caramels unwrapped
2/3 c evaporated milk
3/4 c melted butter
1 c chopped nuts
1 box German chocolate cake mix
6 oz milk chocolate chips


Grease a 9×13 pan well.

Combine caramels and 1/3 of the evaporated milk in saucepan and melt over medium low heat stirring often not to burn.

Combine cake mix, butter, nuts, and 1/3c of the evaporated milk. Mix until dough holds together. Press half of this mixture in bottom of 9×13 pan. Bake 6 minutes at 350. Sprinkle chips over baked cake. Spread cooling caramel mixture over that. Crumble remaining cake mix on that.

Bake 10-15 min more until set. Cool before cutting
