  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (14 ounce) bags caramels
  • 1 1/3 cups water (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 1/3 cup oil (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 3 eggs (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 1 (18 ounce) boxes German chocolate cake mix


  1. Prepare Cake Mix:
    • Follow the directions on the German chocolate cake mix to prepare the batter. This usually involves mixing water, oil, and eggs. Set aside.
  2. First Cake Layer:
    • Pour half of the cake batter into a 13×9 inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool.
  3. Caramel Layer:
    • In a double boiler, combine caramels, melted butter, and evaporated milk. Stir constantly until the caramels are fully melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Caramel Over Cake:
    • Pour the melted caramel over the cooling cake, ensuring an even distribution.
  5. Pecan and Chocolate Chip Topping:
    • Sprinkle 1 cup of pecans and chocolate chips over the caramel layer, providing a delightful crunch and gooeyness.
  6. Second Cake Layer:
    • Pour the remaining cake batter on top of the pecans and chocolate chips, creating the second layer.
  7. Bake Again:
    • Bake the cake for an additional 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. This step ensures the cake is fully cooked and all layers are perfectly melded.
  8. Enjoy the Decadence:
    • Once baked, let the cake cool slightly before slicing into heavenly squares. Each bite will deliver a symphony of textures and flavors, from the moist cake to the gooey caramel and the delightful crunch of pecans.


This Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cake is not just a dessert; it’s a celebration of sweetness and texture. Perfect for any occasion, this indulgent treat will elevate your baking game and become a favorite among family and friends. Enjoy the blissful decadence of this delightful creation!
