Yummy tasting turtle bars but simplified by the use of a cake mix for the base! Found this originally on a Christmas Web site.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Mix 1 box German chocolate cake mix with melted butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Spread 2/3 of the batter in the prepared pan and bake 5 minutes. Meanwhile melt caramels with 1/3 cup evaporated milk , over low heat, in a heavy duty pot, being sure to stir so it doesn't burn. Remove the partially baked cake mixture and pour the caramel mixture evenly over it. Sprinkle pecans over the caramel mixture. Then sprinkle chocolate chips over the pecans. Place the rest of the batter over the chocolate chips by half teaspoonfuls evenly over the whole pan. Return to the oven for an additional 20 minutes. Cool thoroughly and cut into small bars.
