In small saucepan, over low heat, melt caramels in remaining 1/3-cup milk. Spread over top of baked batter. Spread with chips and pecans.

Press remaining dough onto the prepared waxed paper. Then, slip it off the paper onto the baked layer. Bake 18 minutes more. Cool before cutting.


DEAR MELBA: Carolyn Engelke, of Edmond, asked where to find French's Chili-o mix. It can be purchased at Buy for Less at 1104 SE 44 in the meat section, not in the spice aisle.

Betty Beavers, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: I've found French's Chili-o at Sam's Walmart in Norman.

Mrs. Fay, Moore

DEAR MELBA: Sometime ago, I cut a recipe from the newspaper for making a coconut pie that forms its own crust but have misplaced it. I really would appreciate having a copy.

Patricia Sapp, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: Sometime ago, I saw an advertisement for a church that had a picture of two hands holding stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments are inscribed: For fast, fast, fast relief, take two tablets.

DEAR MELBA: Maybe you can use this church sign: To be almost saved is to be totally lost.

Rikki Abrams, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: I really like good meatloaf and can handle that part, but I would love to have a good sauce to serve over it.

I've had one in a local steak house that I understand starts with ketchup and vegetables. Does anyone have a clue about what's in this sauce? I would love to have some good sauce recipes.

Jane Martin, Oklahoma City

DEAR MELBA: I have two brothers who love Sour Pickles. Can someone share a recipe?
