Look, I know this recipe for Turtle Cake isn’t going to help with your post-holiday paunch but who are we kidding? You know and I know that all attempts at eating tofu and vegetables will be dead in a week. Instead of going all or nothing, let’s keep some sweet in our life to balance out all that healthy stuff, k?
This Turtle Cake is definitely a treat. Don’t make this cake just for your family. It simply makes too much and it won’t end well if you eat it all. No, this cake is definitely a sharing cake. Think, upcoming Superbowl parties, Winter Olympic get togethers, birthday celebrations or family parties.
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
24 Mack Toffee candies unwrapped (Mackintosh)
1 small bag pecans
1 small bag chocolate chips
2 tbsps butter
Prepare cake mix according to directions. Pour 3/4 of cake mix into a prepared 13×9 inch cake pan. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350F. Melt butter over medium low heat, add condensed milk and toffee candies. Stir constantly until melted making sure that mixture does not stick to bottom of pot. Pour toffee mixture over semi-baked cake. Sprinkle pecans and chocolate chips on top. Pour remaining cake batter over top and return to oven for an additional 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cake cool completely before cutting into squares.
