Hi missy...Nestle's Carnation Evaporated Milk is 12 oz (1.5 C) in standard size.

I don't know if they STILL make it, but they used to produce a small squat 5 oz can....the raison d'etre for my Dyslexic Chocolate sauce. (On the chocolate sauce recipes I was trying out, I just saw 'can of evaporated milk' and IMMEDIATELY used the large can. That wasn't what the recipe called for and many, many, many adjustments had to be made to make an edible product out of it.)

I haven't made wigs version, but I seem to recall NOT using a full can with the KYN brownies (the version using dry cake mix). Just checked and the original KYN recipe from the Colorado ski resort calls for:

1/3 cup + 1/2 cup evaporated milk-divided--
1/3 C for cake mix, then 1/2 C for caramels.

that would be less than 1.5 C (or 12 oz)

Jesus saves. Buddha recycles.
