I have made this several times in the past. I took it to work one time and it didn't last too long. If you love those candies you will definitely love this cake. Chocolate lovers, try this one! :-)
YUMMY!!!! Alright, I'll admit that I ate most of this cake myself - which says a lot because I usually am not a big "desert person" - it was THAT GOOD!!! I porbably added another few inches to my waist line to!! The fact that I added a dolup (sp?) of whip cream to each piece didn't help in the calorie department, but it made it that much tastier!! The only problem I had was the I had to cook my cake for about 6 minutes longer - but that could be just do to my oven I suppose. This is a definite keeper. Try this guys, you won't be disappointed!
Just made this one for my own birthday and it was very successful. My only modification might be to make the cake as 2- 8" layers and then spread the caramel, chips and nuts as a filling between them, topping with the remaining chips and nuts. I didn't like the way the edges of the caramel got "crunchy" after cooking.
amazing cake!! I halved the recipe and baked it in a 8x8 pan. I was concerned about just melting chocolate chips for the top of the cake, so I made a homemade chocolate frosting to frost the top of the cake with :) It was delicious!!
I made this for work and as usual when I do that I printed off about 20 copies of the recipe, they were all gone before lunch along with all the cake. Eveyone thought it was great!
I have a very similar recipe that I use from a Pampered Chef cook book. This cake is awesome! My picky husband who likes 'plain' chocolate cake loved this! He ate most of it himself. This is a very rich and chocolatey recipe. I made mine with out the pecans and used a store bought chocolate frosting for on top. As an after thought, I wonder if a chocolate/caramel/coconut/pecan type of frosting might work too?
FABULOUS recipe! I made this for a blind bake auction at our church. I put it in a box and decorated the box with a paper turtle head, feet, and tail (get it? a box turtle). Wonderful recipe for you chocolate lovers.
Being that I am a novice baker, I made the cake according to package directions (in two layers) and poured the caramel mixture over each layer and topped with pecans (omitted the chocolate chips as I forgot them). It was a big hit with my chocoholic mother. Next time, I'll be braver and follow the recipe directions exactly.
If you love rich, sinfully delicious, heavenly chocolate desserts, this is the perfect one! The cake was easy to prepare and will definitely be going in my permanent recipe book. Absolutely yummy...
