Caramel Spice Walnut Brownies
1  (14-oz) package caramels
2/3  c evaporated milk, divided
1  (18.25-ounce) package spice-flavored cake mix
3/4 c butter or margarine, melted
2  t vanilla extract
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1 1/2  c walnut halves or pieces

Unwrap caramels, and place in a medium saucepan. Add 1/3 c evaporated milk; cook over low heat until caramels melt, stirring often. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Combine remaining 1/3 c milk, cake mix, and next 3 ingredients; stir just until blended. Spread half of dough into a lightly greased 9" square pan. (Remaining dough will stiffen as it sits.) Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes.

Pour caramel mixture over brownie layer in pan. Sprinkle with walnuts.

Divide remaining half of dough into 6 portions. Shape each portion into a 4" circle. Place circles over walnuts in pan, overlapping slightly. (Dough will spread during baking.)

 

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cover and chill thoroughly before cutting.

Time: Overnight   Makes: 15

Make sure you use a non-stick pan for this recipe. It will be difficult to get this out of the pan if you don't. These are great fall treats!
