Turtle Cake is delicious and it is a decadent must have for Valentine’s day. You will not believe how easy it is to make Turtle Cake.
Grab these simple ingredients:
- 1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix (could always use a homemade recipe)
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1 cup of pecan halves
- 14 oz caramels
- 7 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 3/4 c butter
In a bowl, mix your Devil’s Food cake mix (eggs, cooking oil, water) the way you normally would.
Pour half the batter into a pan and bake it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the 3/4 cup of butter in a saucepan. To the butter, add the sweetened condensed milk and caramels.
Melt the caramels completely!
When the half of the cake mixture is done its time to layer your turtle layer. Take your hot cake from the oven.
Grab your chocolate chips and pecan halves.
Pour them onto the hot chocolate cake.
Now pour on the caramel sauce.
Now pour the remaining batter on top of this mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Let the cake cool completely before you cut it and your slice should look like this:
This cake actually gets better the next day. The caramel center stays soft and delicious.
