I love reading books. Any type of books. And I love even more when an author incorporates food into the story.
I knew when I read about these chocolate caramel treats that I would be making them. I mean, the characters in the book were in heaven from just a bite. Of course, I was going to try them.
These gooey treats only took 5 ingredients and were so quick to put together. The only waiting time is waiting for them to cool. Of course, you could be like me and eat them right from the pan, warm and oh so gooey. Now, I have never been good at making brownies, but these were so simple that even I was able to make them taste amazing. These little bites of heaven were so moist that it just melted in your mouth.
One coworker declared these the best brownies she’s ever eaten. I would have to agree with her. If you make nothing else for Super Bowl Sunday, make these little treats. If you make nothing else off my blog, you have to make these. You will be thanking me afterwards.
Wicked Chocolate Caramel Squares (recipe from Kristen Ashley)

1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 package German Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 cup melted margarine
1 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Grease and flour a 9×11 baking pan.
In a medium saucepan, melt caramels and evaporated milk over low heat, stirring frequently.
In a separate mixing bowl, add cake mix and melted butter. Use a spatula and mix together.
Press half of the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 6 minutes.
Take pan out of the oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Drizzle caramel sauce over the chips. Take the remaining dough and crumble it over the top of the caramel.
