24 Days of Christmas Recipes - Day 6

The below recipe is my friend Sarah's family cookie recipe. Her mom used to send us huge packages of them when we were living together in the sorority house!

1 (14 oz.) pkg. caramels
1 (5 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (18.25 oz.) pkg. German Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 c. butter (melted)
1 lg. egg
1 (6 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans

Combine caramels and 1/4 cup milk in small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Set aside. Combine cake mix, butter, egg and remaining milk. Spoon 1/2 mixture into greased 13x9 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and pecans. Spread caramel mixture on top. Spoon remaining cake mixture on top of caramel layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Yield: 3 dozen (small squares).

Additionally I am including some picks of when I made the Cranberry sauce recipe and the spiced tea recipe:

The Cranberry sauce took my about an hour to cook and can. The spiced tea took less than 10 mins. I will warn, the cranberry sauce recipe made 12- 8 oz jars worth, where as the spiced tea only made 4- 8 oz jars... I would recommend doubling or tripling the spiced tea recipe. I need to go get more Tang to make more!
