Caramel or Peanut Butter Brownies

Peanut Butter Version:
Caramel Version:

1 pkg.  chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/4 cup evaporated milk (I just use regular milk)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
For Peanut Butter Brownies: 
1 cup  PLANTERS Dry Roasted Peanuts, divided (optional 
1 cup creamy peanut butter
For Caramel Brownies:
1 Pkg Caramels (unwrapped)
1/4 Cup Evaporated Milk (Again, I use regular milk)
(sometimes I cheat and use caramel ice cream topping.  Not as good, but much easier and cheaper)

HEAT oven to 350ºF.  

Beat first 3 ingredients with mixer until well blended. (Dough will be thick.) Press half onto bottom of prepared 9x13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes. 

Sprinkle half of the chocolate chips (and nuts if making peanut butter) over crust. Microwave peanut butter or caramel/milk mixture in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min., stirring after 30 sec.; spread over chocolate chips. Drop remaining dough on top of the peanut butter/caramel. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate (and nuts-Press gently into dough with spatula)
BAKE 15 min. more
