1/2 Bag of Chocolate Chips
1 Pkg Caramel Squares
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Stick Margarine
1/4 Bag of Coconut

1. Prepare cake mix according to directions.

4. Take cake out and pour caramel mixture over it.
5. Pour the remaining 1/2 of cake mix over that.
6. Top with chocolate chips and coconut.

This is really really really good! Melt in your mouth good! Have I ever steered you wrong? Okay, there was that time I gave you the black bean brownie recipe, but I still love it! To scroll through my complete recipe box, click here.

The hardest part of this recipe is unwrapping the caramels. But you can always hire your kids to do the dirty work! :-)

Enjoy, and please share below if you think this recipe sounds good and worth making. Linking up at Beauty and Bedlam.

  9. Hi from your newest follower from the Mod'N'Natural Blog! My mouth is watering!!! I must make these.

    We would love to have you join us for the Worship Wednesday Blog Hop :o)


  10. Thanks for visiting and commenting. It's funny we posted similar recipes! Actually, I am going to try yours, because I TOTALLY dig coconut. Like Mounds are my favorite candy bar! Hey, my birthday is the 31st, so I share a birthday with your little Grant! How cool is that! My last child was a completely natural VBAC. So hard, but so empowering and therapeutic as well. I started labor at 3AM and delivered at 5:35PM, so long like yours as well. Praising the Lord for a healthy, safe delivery of another blessing from heaven!

  11. What temp do you set the oven for? We leave for vacay at a rental home today, and I'm taking the recipe along. :)

  12. Made these, and everyone loved them. I just baked at the temp prescribed on the cake mix box. Thanks for the great recipe!
