Mortal Sin

There are few words to describe the deliciousness of this dessert. Mortal sin is very accurate. You may just have to repent after you have eaten it. Tiffany and Julie, if you would like to change your order from chocolate zucchini bread to this just give me a heads up :)

3/4 c melted margarine
2/3 c evaporated milk
1 pkg German chocolate cake mix
1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pkg caramels

Mix cake mix with melted margarine and 1/3 c evaporated milk. Spread half of the batter in a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 8 mins.

While batter cooks melt caramels and the other 1/3 c evaporated milk over medium heat, stir constantly. Pour over slightly cooled cake. Sprinkle caramel with chocolate chips and dollop remaining batter on top of chocolate chips. Do not spread. Bake at 350 for another 20 mins. Let cool before cutting into bars.

*The awesome thing about this recipe is that everything is perfectly timed. As soon as the caramels are finished melting the cake has cooled for a couple minutes. And it definitely has a great wow factor we all like.

This was by far the most popular dessert...way to go Mary! Your cooking skills never let us down. I'm going to have to think about the pros and cons of this vs. zucchini bread cause both blow my mind!

P.S. I believe I saw Steve drool a little every time he looked at this.
