Happy Birthday to the lover today! I spent 3 1/2 hours making this cake last night. It better taste like heaven. Pretty sure it will.
3 Layer Turtle Cake
2 German chocolate cake mixes
1 1/2 bags caramels
1/2 cup butter
1 can Eagle Brand
1 bar Hershey’s special dark chocolate
3/4 bag of whole pecans (chopped)
Heat oven to 325
•Prepare cake mixes as instructed, I like to add an extra egg
•Pour 2 pans half way with batter and sprinkle with chopped pecans and dark chocolate
•Bake 27 minutes
•Pour 1 pan 3/4 of the way full and sprinkle with TONS of pecans and dark chocolate
•Bake 30 minutes
•Melt caramels and butter in a double boiler until blended completely, stir often.
•Mix Eagle Brand into caramel until bleneded and add some pecans if you choose.- set aside in fridge to help thicken
•Now that all 3 cakes are cool here comes the messy part!
•Layer the 2 smaller cakes and caramel add more pecans and chocolate in between layers if you choose (I did 😋)
•Save larger cake for the top, drizzle with desired amount of caramel
And voila! Plunge your face into it and enjoy!
