Strawberry/Cherry Chip Valentine's Bars

These bars are my absolute favorite so it's odd that I never seem to make them more than Valentine's day! Last night I needed to get off the couch for a bit so I hobbled around on one leg and crutches to make these. My hubby was working on some remodeling and frequently ran in to check on me because he heard things falling. The recipe is super easy but still took me a lot of energy and a lot of time with one leg out of commission!

I didn't take pictures of the process but do have a finished look. They taste a lot better than they look! :)

You will need:
1 box of cherry or strawberry chip cake mix
2/3 cup melted margarine
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 package of caramels
chocolate chips

Mix together the cake mix and melted margarine. Press 1/2 of the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake the crust for 6 min in a 350 degree oven. Melt the caramels and evaporated milk. Pour over crust and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Crumble remaining cake mixture on top and bake for an additional 12 min.

"Everything is Gunna be Alright" Printable

Last week I had surgery on my leg to remove some hardware from a 4-wheeling accident on Father's Day in 2009. As of this afternoon I've been on our couch without leaving our main level of our home for a week! Let's just say it's getting REALLY old and starting to kill me sitting here and getting nothing accomplished since I can't even walk well yet. I was killing some time blogging and listening to Bob Marley "It's Gunna be Alright" and decided that I needed a new print for a frame on our mantel. I figured since I can't do much right now I'd make it available for you too! I can't put it in the frame or take pictures right now but will when I'm up and running again!

I'd love to see a picture if you decided to use it in your own home! It is formatted to fit in a frame for an 8 x 10. Click the photo to enlarge or let me know if you have problems with it and I'll e-mail it to you directly.
