I respect this company because not only it offers quality products, but also for the fact that Nestle keeps coming up with new interesting goodies, like Nestle’s Delightfulls (caramel filled morsels) which I’ve used in making this Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce.

    I made a big batch of these, without the caramel chocolate chips in it, and I must say, it was a very nice textured chocolate cake. I think it’s the best chocolate cake I ever made. I did a melted chocolate frosting, because I was in a hurry, didn’t have time to cook caramel. I love the taste and texture. If you’re a sweet tooth person, like me, you may want to increase the sugar by 1/4 cup. Otherwise it’s a perfect recipe.
