Penny's Passion: Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake

Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake

Last week I ran across this new product from Eagle Brand -- flavored sweetened condensed milk.  Who knew they had come out with these cans of goodness?!?  Well, I was intrigued.

 So I did what most of us would do.  I went straight to Pinterest and started searching.  Viola!  I found just what I was searching for at a pin from Mom Loves Baking.  Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake!

Here's What You Need
1 (15.25 oz) package chocolate cake mix, prepared according to package instructions
1 can Eagle Brand Caramel Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 can Eagle Brand Chocolate Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 (16 oz) can store bought chocolate frosting
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Store bought caramel syrup for drizzling on top of cake

Here's What You Do
~  Bake the cake according to the package instructions.  When it's baked, pull it out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.  

~ Punch holes in the top of the cake.  I used the handle of a wooden spoon.

~  Pour the can of Eagle Brand Caramel Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk over the top of the cake.  Spread it around to make sure the condensed milk gets into all the holes.  Do the same thing with the can of Chocolate Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk.  

~ Put the cake in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  

~ Frost the cake with the can of chocolate frosting. 

~ Add nuts and chocolate chips on top.  Drizzle with caramel syrup. 

~ Serve this scrumptious chocolate turtle poke cake and watch the recipients melt from its goodness. 

If you're having people over to watch the big game this weekend, this could be the chocolate dessert to satisfy your crowd.  It is truly yummy!

    Can you send me some? Because if I make it and have the entire thing in my house there is no way I won't eat it all. Seriously. YUM!

  8. I absolutely must make some of that. It looks so delicious.

  9. Poke cakes are so much fun! I make a yellow cake with raspberry jello every year for my husband's birthday. He lives it and I have gotten so many complements. This one looks so decadent and delicious!!
