Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: One 9x13" pan
  • 1 Family-sized Chocolate cake mix box (should bake in a 9x13" pan)
  • 12 oz bottle Caramel ice cream topping
  • Sea salt to garnish (optional)
  • Whipped cream
  • Pretzel sticks
  • M&M's® Red, White, & Blue Peanut
  1. Mix and bake the cake according to the directions on the back of the box.
  2. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 mins.
  3. Use a butter knife to poke holes in the cake. The more holes there are, the more caramel will soak in. You can give the knife a twist after you poke it in the cake to make the holes a bit bigger.
  4. Pour half the caramel over the cake and let it sit and soak in for 10 minutes.
  5. Pour the other half of the caramel on top and let it soak in.
  6. Slice and served topped with whipped cream, pretzel pieces and M&M's® candies.
