Taking dessert or another treat to a church or school potluck is never a problem for me. I jump at the chance to offer these rich, chocolaty bars.—

Ingredients

  • 1 package (11 ounces) caramels
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package German chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with 1/4 cup milk; stir until smooth. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Beat in dry cake mix and remaining milk.
  2. Spread half of the dough into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes; sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  3. Gently spread caramel mixture over chips. Drop remaining dough by tablespoonfuls over caramel layer. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.
