I wanted to treat my family to something special when they arrived last week. I knew with all the delicious ingredients it had to be a winner...I wasn't disappointed and neither was anyone else. In fact they ate most of them before breakfast!!
Chocolate Caramel Goodness
1 bag caramels, unwrapped
2/3 cup milk
1 package German Chocolate cake mix or any chocolate version
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup peanuts, almonds or other nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine caramels and 1/3 cup milk in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 1/3 cup milk, melted butter, flour and nuts (if desired).
Press half the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake for 6 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Spread melted caramel mixture over top of the chips then crumble the remain half of the dough over the top.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Refrigerate for atleast 30 minutes to set the caramel before cutting into bars.
A good chocolate fix!!
