1 (16-ounce) box white angel food cake mix
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Dash of salt
3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted


1. Bake cake according to package instructions. Cool completely.

2. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds or until melted, stirring every 10 seconds. Drizzle chocolate over cake. Combine brown sugar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil, stirring just until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat, and cook 4 minutes (do not stir). Remove from heat; quickly drizzle caramel over cake. Top with pecans.


Drizzle the caramel quickly before it cools.
