The Family Cookbook
Culinary Heirlooms
volume fifteen
by Doug Anderson

      Greetings, food fans, I've got a hot one for you today. Today's recipe should probably be preceded by the warning "enjoy in moderation," but I think anyone reading this will probably be adult enough to make that decision for themselves. Probably.
      This week's recipe comes from the great sweeping plains of North Dakota and reflects the heartiness and gusto of the people who live there. Okay, so I'm full of beans today, but it really is a good recipe. Jessica Myron, who is Char and Timothy Myron's daughter, is the proud author of today's entry, a little something we like to call:

Jessica's German "Uber-Chocolate" Bars
Reprinted from Bulletin 52, July 20, 2003

Melt 50 Caramels
Add 1/3 cup evaporated milk as the caramels melt
Combine the following while waiting for caramels melt:

3/4 cup melted butter
1 package German Chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup evaporated milk

put half of above mixture into 9" x 13" pan.
Bake 6 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove and sprinkle with 6 ounce package of chocolate chips
and 1 cup nuts.

Pour caramel mixture over the layer of nuts.

Sprinkle on rest of dough.
Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

      Ach Du Lieber! Sounds delicious! I think I smell melting caramel already... Thanks, Jessica, for the wonderful dessert recipe. It's definitely a keeper.
      See you next week, and don't hit those "Uber-Chocolate" bars too hard!
