From: (Eric Swartz) TURTLE CAKE =========== Ingredients: ------------ 2 boxes of your favorite chocolate cake mix made according to the directions on the box ~12 ounces(?) 1 1# pkg of caramels 1 stick (1/4 pound) of butter or margarine 1 can of condensed milk 1 pkg of semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 cup chopped walnuts Instructions: ------------- Prepare cake mix according to directions on the box Melt caramels in a double boiler with butter and condensed milk till the consistency of honey (or close) Pour 2/3 of the cake batter into a greased and floured 9x13 pan (with high sides). Top with caramel mixture. Pour the rest of the cake batter over the caramel mixture and top with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Bake in 350 degree (F) oven for 30-35 minutes. I'm guessing at the temperature and time, so you may need to keep a close eye on this while baking to avoid overcooking. Sorry about all the guesstimates, but it has been a long time since I have made this and I can't find the recipe. Sorry. This is very rich and guaranteed to harden arteries on contact, so enjoy! %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% From: (Tracey Fox) TURTLE CAKE =========== Ingredients: ------------ 1 box German chocolate or Devil's food cake mix (Do not use a mix with pudding in it) 3 eggs 1/3 cup plus 2 tblsp evaporated milk 1 1/3 cup water 1 stick butter or margarine 12 oz. chocolate chips 12 oz. caramels 1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans) Instructions: ------------- Preheat oven to 350.
