1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 lg. eggs
1 (14 oz) pkg. caramels
1/4 c. milk
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Beat cake mix and next 3 ingredients at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13 x 9 in. disposable aluminum pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 38-42 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
