A friend of mine was asking about a simple, tasty dessert and I remembered I had this recipe. My mother in law introduced me to these. They are chewy and wonderful.
1 (14 ounce) package of light caramels
1/2 cup melted margarine
1 (6 ounce) pkg of chocolate chips
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 pkg German Chocolate cake mix
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)
Melt the caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk in a microwave, stirring occasionally.
In a separate bowl, combine melted margarine, the other 1/3 cup of evaporated, and cake mix.
Separate the cake mix in to half.
Press one half in to a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Spread the chocolate chips, then caramel, then optional nuts on top of the baked cake mix. Crumble the left over cake mix in to small bits and put that over the top of the caramel and nuts. The cake does bake like it falls.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350. Allow to cool.
