Enjoy a chocolate turtle cake straight out the oven. Warm is the best way to have them!

No wonder this is a bake sale winner! Devil’s food cake sandwiches caramel, pecans and, yes, more chocolate in the middle. Yum.

This easy, delicious cake is always a hit! The cake is easy because it’s made with a cake mix, and delicious because of the rich caramel layer, pecans, and fabulous cocoa frosting. You could use a purchased frosting on the cake if you want to cut back on the time. It’s a sweet, rich cake, almost like candy, so plan on small pieces.

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1 (14 ounce) bags caramels
