Ingredients

!For the Caramel Sauce

  • 20 caramels unwrapped
  • 3 Tablespoons milk

!For the cake

  • 1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 box Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 4 eggs
  • cup water
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cup chopped pecans divided into 1¼ cups and ¾ cup portions
  • 6-8 chocolate/caramel turtle candies chopped

!For the Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350F and spray a Bundt pan with bakers spray.
  • Make the caramel sauce first to allow it to cool in the fridge while cake is cooking.

!For the Caramel Sauce

  • Place unwrapped caramel candies in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the milk. Heat on HIGH 1½ minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until caramels are melted and sauce is smooth. Cool the sauce in the fridge. When cake has cooled 15 minutes, poke holes in the cake.

!For the cake

  • Combine cake mix, brownie mix, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl and mix on medium for 2 minutes. Pour 1 cup batter into the prepared Bundt pan. Add 1¼ cups pecans to the remaining batter the pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Bake at 350F for 50-55 minutes.
  • When cake is done, transfer it to a cooling rack to cool 5 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and allow to cool.
  • While cake is cooling, make the chocolate ganache.

!For the Chocolate Ganache

  • In a small saucepan, heat and stir the heavy cream over medium-low heat just until it begins to boil along the edges. Remove from heat and slowly add the chocolate morsels. Stir gently, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. Whisk the ganache 1 minute until shiny and smooth. Let the ganache cool 15 minutes.
  • When the cake has cooled, pour half the caramel sauce over the top. Then pour the chocolate ganache over the top. Sprinkle the cake with chopped turtle candies and ¾ cup chopped pecans. Drizzle more caramel sauce over the turtle candies and chopped pecans on top of the cake.
  • Enjoy!
