Death by Chocolate bars

The title says it all. I never, I MEAN NEVER, think a dessert is rich. Well, folks, their is a first time for everything I guess! I took a big, honking bite of these babies straight from the oven, and whew! They were rich! I could only eat about a 1x1 inch square. However, once the cooled, I did not feel that they were quite as rich and I consumed much, much more than that. Thankfully! Ha!. My momma has been telling me about these little dream bars for months, and I just got around to whipping them up. They were devoured, I was loved, and all was well.

Death by Chocolate Bars
Printable Version

2 german chocolate cake mixes (powder only)
1 cup melted butter
⅔ cup evaporated milk
12 ounces prepared caramel sauce
12 ounces chocolate chips

Mix first 3 ingredients in a large  bowl, it will resemble cookie dough consistency. Remove ½ of the dough and spread in the bottom of a 9x13 inch cookie sheet. (This is a small cookie sheet, almost half the size of a large one). Cook at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.

Pour prepared caramel sauce on top of warm bottom layer of chocolate cake. Then scatter 12 ounces of chocolate chips in a layer on top of caramel sauce. Drop, in marble size balls, the remaining cake batter mixture to create a top layer. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes at 350 degrees.
Allow to cool, cut into bars, and enjoy!

Makes about 20 bars, depending on size cut.

These look divine! And easy with the cake mix :) Unfortunately Paxton does NOT like chocolate in his milk, so I can't eat any for awhile. But when I can, these will be at the top of my list of things to make, thanks Chels!
