Yields: 10
Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 55 mins

  • Butter, for baking dish
  • All-purpose flour, for baking dish
  • 1 box Devil's food cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
  • 1 10-oz. jar caramel, plus more for drizzling
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 2 c. sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1 c. melted chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325°. Butter and flour a 9"-x-13" baking dish. Prepare chocolate cake mix according to box instructions.

Pour into prepared baking dish and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 26 to 28 minutes.

Let cake cool 15 minutes, then use the tip of a wooden spoon to gently poke holes all over cake.

In a small saucepan, combine caramel and heavy cream. Heat over low, stirring, until completely combined and warmed through.

Pour all over cake, making sure caramel seeps into poke holes.

Top with a full layer of toasted coconut, then drizzle with melted chocolate (stir in a couple drops of vegetable oil if too thick to drizzle) and more caramel.

Let stand 10 minutes, then slice and serve.
