    Marilynís Turtle Cake Recipe

    13 X 9 inch greased cake pan
    Pre-heat oven to 350

    1 box German Chocolate cake mix with pudding in it
    ľ lb margarine
    14 oz. canned sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand)
    14 oz. caramels (unwrap them ahead of time)
    6 oz. pecans
    12 oz. chocolate chips

    Prepare cake mix as directed on the package. Pour Ĺ of the mix into a greased 13 X 9 inch cake pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

    While this is baking, put the caramels in the top of a double boiler, add the margarine and sweetened condensed milk. Cook until margarine and caramels are melted and the sauce is thickened. Stir every few minutes. Sauce should be smooth and thick.

    Let caramel sauce cool a little, then pour it over the baked cake. Pour the rest of the cake mix carefully over the caramel sauce. Sprinkle the pecans over the cake mix. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the pecans. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

    Absolutely Fabulous!

    That sounds yummy, and I suppose it would not need a frosting?

    No, nothing else. It comes out with melted chocolate and nuts on top. Oozing caramel (I usually put in extra caramels) in the middle. Very rich. Small pieces... or not! lol

    My Mom used to make this all the time when I was a kid. She stopped making it after all of kids moved out and she had no one to unwrap the carmels for her. I make it now but I cheat and use carmel ice cream topping in place of all thoses wraped carmel candies.

    Now thats a great idea.... Do you still mix the caramel sauce with the Eagle Brand Milk and butter, or do you use it instead of all that? I am up for anything that make "yummy" into 'easier!'

    I don't use the milk or butter. Just the carmel ice cream topping.

    You are welcome. You are in for a great treat. Everyone loves this and wants me to make it all the time... but I don't. Got to keep it special!

    Anything you eat after midnight has no calories if you are quiet and don't wake them up. If you unscrew the refrigerator light bulb, you can sneak up on the cake without letting the calories know you are there. If you break your slice of the cake open, the calories will leak out. And of course, any cake you share with a friend and eat at the same time, the calories from each piece cancel out the others.

    (and if you believe any of this you are in for a very heavy awakening!)
