  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. Beat cake mix and 1/2 cup butter with electric mixer on low speed until mixture is crumbly. Spoon out 1 cup of the mixture into medium bowl; set aside.
  3. To remaining mixture, add 3/4 cup apple butter and egg. Beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Spread evenly into pan. Bake 20 minutes or until starting to brown and top is set.
  4. Meanwhile, place caramels, 2 Tablespoons butter, and 3 Tablespoons of apple butter in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and melted.
  5. Combine walnuts, coconut, and 2 Tablespoons melted butter with reserved cake mix mixture. Mix until crumbly.

  7. Bake 16-18 minutes or until topping is starting to brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
