Turtle Cake

This was decadent!
A very small piece is enough.

Mix together:
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup water

Beat on low until mixed and on high for 2 FULL minutes.
Pour 1/2 of the cake mix into a greased rectangular cake pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

On low in a saucepan, melt:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup pecan pieces
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 bag of chocolate chips (real not simulated)
1 bag of Kraft caramels

This takes time, but it does melt eventually.
Pour over the baked portion of the cake and spread evenly. Pour the rest of the cake batter over the caramel mixture. Sprinkle the other 1/2 of the bag of chocolate chips on top.

Bake for another 15 - 20 minutes.

This cake is sticky on the sides (obviously) so it is a little hard to get out when it cools, but it is well worth the effort.....I would add more nuts next time,
John said he would like vanilla ice cream with it! Judy couldn't talk, her mouth was full of cake! LOL

This was an expensive cake to make....but real yummy.

"Bon Appetit!"
