Remove from oven to a cooling rack.

This recipe looks delicious for anyone who loves chocolate! I will definitely be making this soon.

This cake was so good I went back for seconds! It has the texture of a brownie so one slice goes a long way. Yum!

This cake was so gooey and delicious that I had to take breaks in between each bite. The salt makes this!

Delicious! It was more brownie-like - not that there's anything wrong with that!

Yum! The cake was almost like a brownie with plenty of chocolate and caramel on top.

Get ready for some gooey, delicious cake. Best served warm. A little ice cream on the side would be nice too!

I'm not a huge carmel fan, but I love chocolate and this dump cake was incredibly chocolatey and moist!

This rich chocolate cake will put a smile on your face. It was delicious!

This is good for a dessert you need to make in a hurry. I didn't like how the caramels were mostly solid in the cake, however. I'd try caramel sauce or homemade caramel instead.
