Chocolate Caramel Dump Cake – really though?

I don’t usually go for box-mix recipes, but the name of this really stuck with me, and who could say no to that much chocolate? Plus I may have had some caramels in my house that needed a good home…

Make sure you watch the video for this too, I probably say “dump” a few too many times, but I think you’ll find it entertaining.

So while the recipe actually calls for “salted” caramel, I do not have sea salt in my house. I don’t know why, but extra salt on things just doesn’t do it for me – though I know that it does make a difference in things like hot chocolate. I’ll let you guys salt your own treats for now!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 box of super moist devil’s food cake
  • 1 box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 ½ cups of milk
  • chopped up caramels
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips

The How-To: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Mix the pudding and milk together
  3. Add cake mix – only mix until cake mix is combined!
  4. Grease a 13×9 pan and spread out the batter so it’s even
  5. Sprinkle the caramels over the batter – don’t mix in
  6. Bake for ~35 min
  7. While cooling, melt the chocolate chips & drizzle over the top of the cake
  8. Eat while warm!


049So overall, dump cake was a success. I still really think we need to brainstorm a new name – maybe just chocolate caramel cake? Simple whip up cake? Let me know what you think in the comments!

Until next recipe 🙂
