Dressing makes this salad simple and delicious.
Found at any local grocery store!

Don't forget the chocolate!

Try our Caramel Brownies...
definitely worth planning to wear
a larger size pants or just your stretch pants
will work after you eat the whole plate!.
I prefer them chilled
to keep the chocolate chips hard.

1 lb. pkg of caramels

1 can evaporated milk

1 pkg. German chocolate cake mix

1/2 cup butter

Grease a 9x13 pan.
Mix 1/2cup milk with caramels melt in bowl.
Set aside.
In another bowl mix cake mix, butter and 1/3cup milk.
Press about 1/2 of cake mixture in the greased pan
and bake for about 8 minutes.
Top with chocolate chips,
caramel mixture and drop additional cake batter
in spoonfuls on top.
Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes.
Do not over cook!
Keep them ooooey and gooooey!!!
