Turtle Brownies

I found an EASY recipe for Turtle Brownies and I thought I would share it here since it was incredibly quick, easy and tasty!

1 package of chocolate cake mix (I used Devil's Food)
1 cup of chopped pecans
2/3 cup of evaporated milk
1 stick of melted butter

Mix these four ingredients (batter will be stiff) and divide the batter in half.
Press 1/2 the batter into a lightly greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

While that is baking, unwrap the caramels from a 12 oz. bag of Kraft caramels and slowly heat the caramels along with 1/3 cup of evaporated milk over medium-low heat until it is a smooth mixture.

When you take the chocolate base out of the oven, pour a 12oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips evenly across the entire base.
Then drizzle the caramel sauce evenly on top of the chocolate chips.
Then take the remaining batter (the 1/2 you saved from the beginning) and drop it in rounded tablespoons across the top on the caramel sauce. It doesn't matter if some caramel is still showing.
Return to the oven for an additional 20 - 25 minutes.
Let it cool completely before cutting it into bars.

You forgot the step where you eat some of the caramels while you melt them in the pot!
