Melt over hot water (in a double boiler) the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening. Stir until it is smooth. Remove from heat and pour 1/2 the mixture into an 8x8 inch well greased pan. Spread evenly. Refrigerate until firm (about 15 minutes). In a heavy saucepan or double boiler melt the caramels, butter or margarine and water, stirring until smooth. Then add the walnuts and pour over the chocolate layer. Return to the refrigerator until the mixture is set (about 15 minutes). Then add the remaining melted chocolate mixture over the caramels and spread evenly. Return to refrigerate until firm.
