Knock You Nakeds

This is a recipe that is so good it will "knock you naked."  My mom submitted this for the Valentine's Day Recipe Exchange (she may or may not have had a little prodding from me).

Cook Time:  30 Minutes
Yields:  20 Servings


1 pkg German chocolate cake mix
1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 pkg caramel candy
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 cup chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, nuts, 1/3 cup evaporated milk and butter and mix well.
  3. Press half of mixture into bottom of a greased 9" x 13" baking dish.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
  5. Melt caramel candy in top of double boiler* with 1/2 cup evaporated milk.
  6. When caramel mixture is well melted and mixed, gently pour over baked mixture.
  7. Cover with chocolate chips and take small amounts of reserved chocolate mixture and pat out thin in hands and lay over top of chips.
  8. Bake for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.
  9. Cool before slicing
*If you are like me and don't have a double boiler, you can make one by placing a bowl over boiling water in pot.  Make sure bowl is not touching water.  Or you can use a heavy pot and cook on medium low heat, stirring constantly until melted and well blended.
