Caramel Brownies

My friend brought me these brownies 2 weeks ago and I think I've been dreaming of them ever since! I love brownies, but these Caramel Brownies are in a class all their own! 
Recipe from Michelle Ashby...
Caramel layer:
1 (14 oz.) package individually wrapped caramels (about 48-50)
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 x 13" pan and set aside.
  2. Unwrap caramels and place in a small saucepan with 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  3. Combine cake mix, melted butter, the other 1/3 cup evaporated milk and vanilla. Beat well and spread half of the batter into prepared pan with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake for 8 minutes.
  4. Remove brownies from oven and sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour the melted caramel mixture over the top, then, with a spoon, drop the remaining half of the brownie batter evenly over the top.
  5. Bake for another 18-20 minutes, or until top is mostly set. Let brownies cool completely in pan, then cut into bars. Makes about 18 brownies.

Sadly, no. Ashby is her married name and she's never lived in Utah. Her daughter just happens to be here right now and I just asked her to be sure. Good luck in your search!!!
