Oh My ~ Turtle Cake

It's no secret~ I LOVE DESSERT!! Any kind is good, but I'm more into Cakes, cookies, brownies, pie....ok, all of them!! This is another one that is SUPER easy! The items for this baby are always in the cubbord!! Did I say it was super easy??!! VROOM VROOM...Drivers start your engines!!...Or in this case, "Bakers...turn your oven on!!"....This will be one you'll want to share and make for the 4th!!

What you'll need to do:
Mix 1 German chocolate cake mix up as directed on the box.
*Pour 1/2 of mixed batter (enough to cover the bottom) into a 9 X 13 non stick sprayed pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

While that's baking:
Melt together:
14 oz carmels
1/2 can evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter

When the bottom part of the cake is done, pour the carmel mixture over the top of it and add:
2 Cups chopped pecans (optional)
1 Cup Chocolate chips

Pour the remainder of the cake batter on top and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes!!
The carmel will be bubbling all around the outter edges!

Since 1/2 of our family likes nuts and 1/2 doesn't, I didn't put the nuts in mine, therefore you won't see them in my picture! When I make it for the 3 of us, the more nuts the better!!!

Oh, I let it cool for about 15- 20 mintues before cutting into it. Let's the carmel set a bit and it's not so messy! But warm, gooey chocolate...what's not to LOVE!!

{I topped mine with frozen Cool's like having cool whip and Ice Cream!!
I think I just licked my lips and slurpped!}
