Press half of dough into bottom of prepared baking dish. Bake 6 minutes, reserving remaining dough. In medium saucepan, melt caramels with remaining 1/3 cup of milk over medium heat, stirring.

It may look as though it is not done, but once it cools it will firm up. Cool on wire rack then refrigerate for at least an hour before cutting.
