Chocolate Fudge Turtle Brownie Cake with Caramel & Walnuts

Chocolate Fudge Turtle Brownie Cake with Pecans & Caramel PM

This morning I delivered this Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cake with Caramel & Nuts…. and this afternoon I snacked on the leftover brownie cubes and ganache.   Yes, yes I did.

And it was so, so delicious!!

Dark Chocolate Fudge Turtle Brownie Cake with Walnuts & Caramel

Wanna know how to make it?  Here you go:

First, I baked two layers of dark chocolate cake  and added a pile of semi-sweet chocolate chips baked into the batter.    I used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake mix, but adapted it like I usually do.  You could easily just follow the box directions, but I always like to add a little oomph to my cakes by doing the “doctored” recipe!

So, I followed this recipe and added in 3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and then baked the two layers in 8″ round pans.

This cake was very similar to the Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cake with Heath Bar Toffee Chips, Ganache & Hershey Kisses cake… but this was for a customer’s husband’s birthday and she told me that her husband loved brownies with lots of caramel and nuts, so I decided to make the cake similar to that one… except with caramel and nuts and well…. more brownies.

Chocolate Fudge Turtle Brownie Cake with Walnuts and Caramel

I used a boxed Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies mix to bake a layer of brownie (also in an 8″round cake pan) and then I sandwiched that in between the cake!  I baked the extra batter in a 6″ square pan and then cubed it up to garnish the top of the cake.

So here’s how I put it together… I put down one layer of cake, then I drizzled it slathered it with ganache, then caramel, then chopped walnuts.   On top of that I added the 8″ round brownie and then more ganache, caramel and nuts.  Then I repeated the bottom layer… which included the other cake, even more ganache, caramel, and nuts.

To make it pretty on top, I cubed up tiny bites of brownie and put them around the edges… and just for kicks I drizzled on just a little more ganache and caramel.    Isn’t that pretty?  Is your mouth-watering?  Mine is.

Goodness… it’s a good thing I make things like this for other people and don’t keep whole cakes like this at my house, because I’m pretty sure I’d have it for breakfast, lunch and supper until it was gone.  If it lasted for all three meals…

If you’re a brownie lover – you should make this.  Today.  If not today, then definitely tomorrow, but only if you need to run to the store first!

Do you love brownies?  Let me know if you make this cake… I’d love to hear what you think!

Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Cake (aka Oreo Cookie Cake)

Chocolate Sandwich Oreo Cookie Cake WM

Today I want to share this easy-peasy Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Cake (aka Oreo Cookie Cake).

Nordic Ware Cookie Cake Pan

I’ve been eyeing one of these Nordic Ware Cookie Cake pans for months and last week I broke down (ha!) and bought one!

You see, my friend Ashley love, love, loves Oreo Cookies & Cream filling and she told me when she got back from Thailand that she wanted a bowl of it to eat.

Oreo Cookie Cake

Well, as much as I would love to just mix up a bowl and hand it to her…. I couldn’t bring myself to do it without somehow putting it in or on a cake.   That’s when I had the brilliant excuse idea to finally buy the pan!

Great idea, right?

Anyway, so this cake is really simple.   And the filling is very similar to the Oreo Cookies &  Cream Filling except I altered it a tiny bit to make it stiffer (recipe below).

First, I baked a chocolate cake in the new pan and flipped it out to completely cool!

Then, mix up the filling/frosting below and piled it on!  And you’re done!!

Oreo Cookie Cake Below

I really hope Ashley likes the cake… or at the very least, it’ll be very easy to take the top off and eat straight up Oreo filling :)

Here’s the printable recipe for the cookie filling…

Oreo Cookie Filling/Frosting


  • 15 Oreos, crushed (I used a food processor)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 4 oz. salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5-6 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp. milk, as needed to adjust consistency.


With the exception of the Oreo cookies, mix all the ingredients together until creamy and smooth.

Stir in the crushed Oreos and you're done!
