Chocolate cake is pretty good by itself.  Add some hot fudge, along with a really rich, decadent frosting, and then top it off with pecans, caramel sauce and chocolate chips?!  Well, you’re in for one amazing dessert!  My Turtle Poke cake is out-of-this-world amazing and will tame even the most fierce sweet tooth!

I start with a simple boxed Devil’s Food cake mix.  As soon as it comes out of the oven while the cake is still hot, I then poke holes in it with the back of a wooden spoon.  Working quickly, I then pour over hot fudge sauce to the still-hot cake.  I use the same process with my Coconut Cream Poke Cake and my Pumpkin Caramel Cream Cheese Poke Cake.  Drizzling the hot fudge over the hot cake always renders a wonderfully moist cake.

Once the cake has cooled, I then top off the cake with a fantastic chocolate cream cheese frosting, and then add chopped pecans, caramel sauce and mini- chocolate chips.  This fantastic combination brings together all of the amazing flavors that you’ll find in the classic Turtle candies!

As soon as you lift out a slice of this amazing cake, you’ll see where the hot fudge has worked its way into the cake, through the holes.  Along with keeping the cake moist, it really adds a fantastic chocolate richness to the cake.

This cake is such a wonderful treat, especially for anyone that loves the combination of chocolate and caramel!  The pecans also add a fantastic texture and crunch to the cake – perfect in every bite!
