TURTLE CHOCOLATE LAYER CAKE


TURTLE CHOCOLATE LAYER CAKE

This Turtle Chocolate Layer Cake starts with rich, decadent and moist chocolate cake layers that are filled with a caramel pecan sauce and covered in a smooth caramel frosting, then finished off with a caramel and ganache drip and chopped pecans! 

INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE CARAMEL PECAN FILLING:

  1. For the Toasted Pecans: Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  2. In a small bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Drizzle the melted butter onto the pecans and toss together to coat pecans.
  3. Spread pecans onto prepared baking sheet and bake in oven for 5-6 minutes until toasted and fragrant.
  4. Remove the pecans from the oven and roughly chop. Set aside.
  5. For the Caramel Sauce: Add the sugar to a large heavy-bottomed non-stick saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly using a heat resistant rubber spatula or a wooden spoon until the sugar is melted and turns a medium amber caramel colour. Don't worry if the sugar clumps up, just keep stirring and it will melt smoothly. Keep a close eye on the pot as the sugar can easily burn, and you would have to start over again.
