I thought that I had lost this recipe forever but, recently found it in a 
book loaned to me by a co-worker.  There was a girl in my dorm in college 
whose grandmother used to bake these occasionally and boy were they good.  
I've made them also.  I warn you -- these brownies a very, very rich.  
They're great on cold winter days -- or any day!

1 box German chocolate cake mix
2/3 cup evaporated milk, divided
1 6-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 bag caramels
3/4 cup melted butter

Combine dry cake mix with 1/3 cup evaporated milk.  Press half of mixture 
into greased 9x13-inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.  Unwrap 
caramels and melt with remaining 1/3 evaporated milk.  Sprinkle chocolate 
chips over partially-baked brownie base.  (You don't have to let this 
partially-baked brownie base cool befor adding chocolate chips.)  Sprinkle 
on walnuts.  Pour caramel mixture over top.  Pat reserved cake mixture into 
flat pieces with your hands.  Lay randomly on top of caramel.  Bake at 350 
degrees 20-25 minutes.  Let cool, cut and enjoy!
