This little diddy was for my husband’s birthday. He usually goes for chocolate and peanut butter but he went out to the store and bought all the ingredients for a chocolate turtle cake. I love caramel so this cake was right up my alley. It tasted as good as it looks. Did I mention there is also a brownie in there? Surprise!
This is the bottom layer of the epic 4 layers. Just a regular chocolate cake.
Frost with some delectable caramel frosting and some nuts. I used walnuts but typically turtle is pecan. I leave it up to you which nut to use. Top with another chocolate cake and frost.
Then put on some Heath bar broken. Can you feel the calories just compounding?
I didn’t take a picture of this but then I put on a turtle brownie and frosted it and put on the Heath bar and the nuts. Then I put on another layer of chocolate cake.
Here it is all done. A few Rollo’s on top and around the bottom. Then some caramel drizzled over top.
Here it is cut open so you can see all the different layers.
1 chocolate cake box and the ingredients to make it from the box.
1 box turtle brownie. Leave the caramel sauce for over the cake.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
16 oz. powder sugar (1lb.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil, and put in a mixing bowl. Add powder sugar and vanilla. Beat with a mixer until it reaches a spreading consistency. More milk may be needed to reach the consistency you want. Add milk a teaspoon at a time.
