    This cookbook is from 1994. It lists products we don't sell anymore, but you can substitute very easily products we have now that are similar/practically the same. :) Also, there is another Turtle Skillet cake that is in the files that uses current products. But taste-wise, I don't know which is better. :D

    Turtle Cake (from The Pampered Chef Favorites ll, page 64)

    1 box (18-19 oz) German Chocolate cake mix
    1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
    1 small can (5 oz) evaporated milk
    2 Tbsp butter or margarine
    1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 cup chopped pecans

    Preheat oven 350. Prepare cake mix in Batter Bowl according to package directions. Pour half of batter into greased 9" x 13" Baker. Bake 15 minutes. While cake is baking, melt caramels with milk and butter in Microwave Saucepan or double boiler; stirring until smooth. Slowly pour caramel mixture over partially baked cake. Spread evenly with Super Scraper.

    Sprinkle chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of pecans over caramel mixture. Pour remaining cake batter over top, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Bake 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool before slicing.

    Yield: 24 servings

    I also thought it's funny that in that recipe, it doesn't tell you to use the Food Chopper for the pecans! :)

    FYI- all the products in that recipe are still in the catalog, but some of them have changed names. The Microwave Saucepan is the Micro-Cooker, 9x13 Baker is the Rectangular Baker, and Super Scraper is the Classic Scraper.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking and meant, just didn't say it right. :blushing: Wasn't positive about the Microwave saucepan and super scraper.
