Chocolate Turtle Cake


Sometimes I need an easy recipe that is also quick to make. This Chocolate Turtle Cake is one of those recipes. I always seem to have a cake mix in my pantry as well as a variety of chips and nuts. Add a can of evaporated milk and stick of butter and you have everything you need.

Right out of the oven is delicious, or you can let it rest. When it has cooled off make sure you keep it sealed in an airtight container so it does not dry out. Adding your favorite frosting would be great. I like adding a scoop of ice cream on the top of my Chocolate Turtle Cake with a drizzle of caramel and a few pecans.
