(by Shirley McNevich)

1 - 14oz. can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated)
1 beaten egg
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup cold butter
1 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
2 cups flour
25 Kraft caramels (unwrapped)

In a bowl add flour, brown sugar, beaten egg and 1/2 cup of the cold butter--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Add the chopped macadamia nuts--stir to mix. Reserve 2 cups of the crumbs mixture, then press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. In a saucepan over low heat add the condensed milk, remaining 1/2 cup butter and the unwrapped caramels--cook/stir until melted and smooth. Pour the caramel mixture evenly over the hot crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs evenly over the top. Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into bars or squares.
