Who doesn't love gooey chocolate and caramel all wrapped up in a quick-to-make bar cookie.

Ingredients

Crust

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ chocolate fudge cake mix
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
3
eggs
1
cup semisweet chocolate chips

Filling

1
bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
1/4
cup butter or margarine
1
can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

Topping

1/2
cup reserved cake mix
1/2
cup quick-cooking oats
3
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Reserve 1/2 cup cake mix for topping. In large bowl, beat remaining cake mix, 1/2 cup butter and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until set.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat caramels, 1/4 cup butter and the condensed milk over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth.
  • 3 Spread caramel filling evenly over partially baked crust. In small bowl, mix reserved 1/2 cup cake mix, the oats and 3 tablespoons butter with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over caramel filling.
  • 4 Bake 18 to 22 minutes longer or until top is set. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen bars. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store covered.

Expert Tips

Get your kids involved in making these bars by letting them unwrap the caramels. Just make sure the caramels don't disappear!

Be sure to buy sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk. They don't work the same way in recipes.
