This dessert is super-easy to make and looks really impressive!





Turtle Fudge Skillet Cake





1 pkg (18.25 ounces) devil’s food cake mix (plus ingredients to make cake)

1 T butter or margarine

4 squares (1 ounce each) semi-sweet chocolate for baking, coarsely chopped

1 jar (12 ounces) caramel ice cream topping, divided (or the larger, squeezable bottle)

½ cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped

vanilla ice cream (optional)





Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, mixing batter by hand until smooth. Melt butter in oven safe 12-inch skillet over medium heat, tilting skillet to coat bottom. Gently pour batter over bottom of skillet, spreading evenly. Bake, uncovered, 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Carefully remove skillet from oven and loosen edges of cake. Carefully invert onto large round platter. Coarsely chop chocolate squares into small pieces. Place chocolate and half of the ice cream topping in microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Carefully spread caramel and chocolate mixture over cake. Coarsely chop pecans; sprinkle evenly over cake. Drizzle with remaining ice cream topping, if desired. Let stand until topping is set. Cut into wedges and serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired. (Yield: 12 servings)
