Gooey Chocolate Dulce de Leche Cake

Trust me when I say that this cake is simple, fail-proof, and super delish. This might have something to do with the fact that it's just baked in a 9x13 dish with no worry of evening up layers, or stacking layers, or filling layers, or any of that other ridiculous cake making junk.
