Say what????? This cake is pure decadence! There's the yumminess of the German chocolate cake with the gooeyness of the caramel and crunch of the pecans, plus the sweetness of the chocolate chips. Top that off with some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup and you'll feel like you're in Heaven. So, so, so good! Enjoy!
-1 box German chocolate cake mix PLUS all the ingredients needed to make (eggs, oil, water)
-13 oz caramels
-1/4 cup milk
-1/3 cup unsalted butter
-2 cups milk chocolate chips
-1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9x13 baking dish and set aside.
Prepare cake mix as instructed on the box. Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Do NOT turn off the oven after this!
While that's baking, unwrap the caramels and place them in a sauce pan. Add the milk and butter and melt until nice and smooth.
As soon as the cake is finished, pour the hot caramel on top. You'll hear that beautiful sizzling sound. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans on top. Spread evenly the remaining cake batter on top. Bake for 15-20 more minutes.
Serve hot by itself or with some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Yum! Enjoy!
