Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
  • 1 (11-oz) package caramels, unwrapped
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk, divided
  • 1 package German chocolate cake mix
  • ⅔ cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan.
  2. Combine caramels and ⅓ cup evaporated milk in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Set aside.
  3. Combine cake mix with butter and remaining ⅓ cup evaporated milk in a separate bowl. Add nuts.
  4. Press just over ½ the dough into a 9x13-inch pan. (It will seem like not enough dough but it will work, promise!) Bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Remove and sprinkle hot dough with chocolate chips. Cover with caramel mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cake mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cake mix is fully cooked. Cool before serving.
