German Chcolate Bars

These bars go by different names and variations across the country. Illini Bars, Hello Dollys, German Chocolate Brownies, etc. You will find differnt recipes that include coconut,pecans or oats but they are all pretty much the basic dessert. This is my variation, simple and gooey. What else can you ask for?

German Chocolate Bars

14 oz. package caramels
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 package German chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup evaporated milk

In a medium saucepan (or microwavable bowl) combine caramels (unwrapped) and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously until caramels are melted (or microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds). Grease a 13 x 9 pan. Combine cake mix, butter, 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Press half of dough into bottom of pan. Reserve the rest of the dough for the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Drizzle the caramel mixture over the chips. Spoon remaining dough mixture on top, spreading as evenly as possible (it will be somewhat patchy though). Return to oven and bake 15-18 minutes. Cool and then refrigerate at least 30 minutes before cutting.
