Turtle Caramel Cake

This Turtle Caramel Cake is a decadent dessert that satisfies your cravings. Combining a moist cake, rich caramel layer, and nutty flavor of pecans creates a symphony of flavors ready to impress the ones with the most refined taste.


  • 1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 C chopped pecans
  • ¾ C unsalted sweet cream butter melted
  • ½ C evaporated milk
  • 111 oz caramel bits
  • 1 box German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • C canola oil
  • 1 container of chocolate fudge frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. 
  2. Beat the cake mix, eggs, oil,  and milk with a hand mixer until smooth. 
  3. Add half of the batter to the greased baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, add the caramel bits, evaporated milk, and butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Stir and cook until melted.
  5. Pour the mixture over the baked cake once the caramel bits and butter melt. Add pecans and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the remaining batter over the caramel sauce. Bake for 20 minutes. 
  7. Let the chocolate fudge frosting soften so you can quickly spread it. The cake is entirely cool; top it with the frosting and sprinkle more chocolate chips and pecans.
