Caramel Layer Chocolate Squares

My recipe paper shows the date October 13, 1986. A pre-printed caption at the top says ‘JUST A NOTE FROM…TOOTS”. Everyone called my Mother’s friend, “Toots”. As I recall, her name was Violet although not many folks knew that. She was a registered nurse, as was my Mother, and they worked together for years and were best friends. Toots was a wonderful cook. If the recipe has her name on it, and it does, then I know it’s a good one. Hope it turns out well for you. (I’m writing it exactly as Toots wrote it.)

Mix pkg caramels with 1/3 C. evap. milk. Heat until caramels are melted. Melt 1//2 C. (or little more) of oleo. Mix pkg. German Choc cake mix, melted oleo and 1/3 C. canned milk & 1 C. chopped nuts by hand until dough sticks to-gether. Grease & flour 9×13 pan. Place 1/2 of cake mix on bottom of pan. Bake @ 350 Deg. for 6 min.

Sprinkle 1 C. choc chips over baked crust. Spread caramel mixture over choc. chips. Crumble remaining cake mixture over caramel mix.

Bake 350 Deg 15-18 min. Cool slightly. Refrigerate 30 min. to set caramel mixture. Cut into squares.

I’ve never tried making this recipe. But, I just gained 10 pounds while I was typing it out.
