JAMIE'S CHOCOLATE COVERED CARAMEL APPLE CAKE
When I was on vacation once I went into a shop where they had really great candy apples. I saw one that had been double dipped. Once in caramel then in chocolate with the walnuts sprinkled on top.
This being in my mind I put it to the test of a cake. Wow is a good word for the taste, and I love both chocolate and caramel together so here it is.

Pout in the mixture and put into the oven on center rack. Let bake 35 minutes and check for doness but do not over cook, it will be dry
