Caramel Brownies
1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 small can evaporated milk, divided

34 bag Kraft caramels

Remove brownies from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Drizzle caramel sauce over chocolate chips. Add pecans if desired.
Using a teaspoon, make small balls with remaining batter and smash flat. Very carefully, place on top of the caramel sauce until the top is completely covered. Bake an additional 16 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
