All right, a few more fantastic recipes. I got this one from Linda Ryan – our pastor’s wife. It’s fantastic, but you may want to employ someone else to unwrap all those caramels. Pain in the butt.

1 package Betty Crocker SuperMoist devil’s food cake miz
1 1/3 c. water
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 bag (14 ounce) caramels
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 c. pecans, chopped
1 bag (6 ounce) semisweet chocolate chips (or 1 cup)

Heat oven to 350. Grease bottom of 13×9 rectangular pan.

Beat cake mix, water, oil, and eggs in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly (do not overbeat). Pour half of the batter into pan. Bake 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat caramels and evaporated milk in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted (this takes longer than it sounds). Stir in pecans. Pour caramel mixture over warm cake in pan. Sprinkle with chocolated chips. Spread with remaining cake batter. Bake 30 minutes. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
