DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease and flour a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • Pour half of the prepared cake mix into the pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place unwrapped caramels in a saucepan.
  • Add 1/2 cup evaporated milk.
  • Heat on low, stirring until caramels have melted.
  • Remove cake from oven and pour melted caramel mixture on top of the cake.
  • Sprinkle chopped pecans and chocolate chips on top of caramel layer.
  • Press down lightly.
  • Pour remaining half of prepared cake mix on top of the filling layer.
  • Bake an additional 30 minutes.
  • After removing cake from the oven, let the cake cool slightly (approx. 5- 10 minutes).
  • Run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake.
  • This is an important step- otherwise you'll have a tough time removing the pieces later!
  • Store at room temperature.
  • Note: Please see your cake mix box for exact amounts of vegetable oil, water and eggs.
