Man-Catching Brownies

Whether these work at catching a man or not remains to be told. I do know that it catches some young boys in my kitchen. These moist brownies with hidden nuggets of chocolate chips and nuts will catch anyone lingering by this plate of goodies.

Man-Catching Brownies

30 Kraft caramels, unwrapped
2/3 cup of evaporated milk, divided
1 15.25-oz pkg German chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup milk  chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans 

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease a 9x13 baking pan. In a small saucepan, melt the caramels and 1/3 cup of the evaporated milk slowly, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the cake mix, melted butter and the remaining 1/3 cup of evaporated milk to make a dough. Press just over half of the dough mixture into the greased pan into an even layer. Bake this in the oven for roughly 7 minutes. 
Remove the pan from the oven and pour the caramel mixture evenly over the dough. Top with the nuts, chocolate chips and whatever dough mixture left over. 
Return the pan to the oven and bake another 10 to 11 minutes until brownies are set. 
Makes about 16 squares -- which roughly will feed perhaps 5 people after the chef has her few first. :)
