Chocolate Caramel Yummy
1 small can evaporated milk
14-ounce bag of caramels
1 German Chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup melted butter
1, 12-ounce package chocolate chips
In a double boiler, stir 1/3 cup evaporated milk and unwrapped caramels until melted and smooth. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter, and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. This will make a wet dough.
Press half of the dough into the bottom of a well-greased 9 x 13 baking dish and bake 6 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips, then top with caramel mixture, and drop remaining dough randomly over the top.
Return to the oven for 14 to 18 more minutes.Enjoy!
Incidentally, I had to use a Devil's Food cake mix because apparently, the poor excuses for grocery stores here in Maryland have not heard that there are more varieties of cake mixes than chocolate, yellow, marble, white, and the occasional carrot. At Meijer in Grand Rapids, (Oh, Meijer, how I miss thee!), there was almost an entire aisle of cake mixes. It was amazing! Not so in Maryland.
However, in Maryland, we are fortunate enough to have Pomegranate Burst ice cream. When I was perusing the ice cream selection last week, I laughed out loud when I saw that flavor. The poor man stocking the shelves looked at me strangely and so I said "Who in the world is going to buy Pomegranate Blast ice cream?" He nodded and said sadly "I hope someone likes it. They made me buy two cases of it." Yeah--good luck with that. I imagine I'll see it in the clearance section in two weeks. I won't be trying it, that's for sure. I was too busy stocking my cart with the Moose Tracks that was on sale. Now, THAT'S what I call ice cream!
