    • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips divided
    • 1 (14 ounces) 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk caramel or dulce de leche

    • 1/2  cup  caramel ice cream topping or salted caramel
    • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    • Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)

    Instructions

    • Mix the cake batter according to package directions. Stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips. Bake the cake according to the package directions. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Then poke holes all over the top with the end of a spoon or butter knife.

    • Once the cake is at room temperature, carefully top with the chocolate frosting. Then drizzle the caramel on top and add the chopped pecans.
    • Store in the refrigerator, until serving.
