Chocolate Cake with Caramel Topping

Chocolate Cake
cake mix or homemade cake batter
2 to 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate baking bar
about 1 TBSP butter

Pour cake batter into greased pan. Melt chocolate on stove top with butter. Pour chocolate onto top of batter. Swirl or spread as you please.
Bake cake as directed. Take out of oven and let cool.

Frost with favorite frosting (we used canned frosting this time, which we rarely do).

Caramel Topping
1 can sweetened condensed milk

fill large pot with water, place can in water. Place on oven and bring to simmer or low boil. Simmer/boil for 2.5 to 3 hours.
Take pot off of heat, let sit for a few minutes. Next take can out of pot and place in cool water. Let sit until cool to the touch. Next open the can and you have caramel!
Cut a slice of cake, drizzle caramel over top and enjoy!
We cooked caramel on stove for 2 hours and feel like it could have gone for 30 mins to 60 mins longer. But it was still delicious as is.
