Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) box German chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 13 cup oil (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 1 13 cups water (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 13 cup milk
  • 12 cup butter
  • 1 (14 ounce) package caramels
  • 34 cup chocolate chips
  • 12 cup salted peanuts


  1. Mix cake mix per directions.
  2. Pour half the batter into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the caramels with the milk and butter in a sauce pan, careful not to let it boil and scorch.
  4. Remove from heat once melted.
  5. Pour caramel mixture over baked cake.
  6. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and peanuts over the caramel mixture.
  7. Cover with remaining batter.
  8. Lower temp to 250 and bake for 20 minutes, then bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
  9. Let the cake cool before you try to cut it.
  10. Note: I bought two small packages of caramels in the candy aisle and unwrapped them all before starting.
  11. Note: I used more than the 1/2 cup of peanuts since I didn't think that was enough!
