Pat's notes for this recipe:
This turtle cake is a little different than those already posted. My love of sweetened condensed milk inspired me to try it for this recipe many years ago. This has been a favorite at club and family get togethers since.Hope you like this version. Enjoy!

Directions

1
Heat oven to 350^. Spray cake pan ( 9x13-inch) with non stick spray. Set aside.
---
Mix cake as directed on package. Spread 1/2 of the cake batter in the baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool.
2
While this is cooling; put in a saucepan the caramels, butter and sweetened condensed milk and cook over low heat until blended and caramels have melted, stirring continuously.
3
After cake has cooled; spread caramel mixture over cake evenly. Top with a sprinkling of the chocolate chips and 1/2 the nuts.
4
Cover all with the remaining cake batter, spreading to cover. Sprinkle top with chocolate chips and nuts. Bake for 20 minutes. Do the toothpick test.
When cake has cooled on wire rack cut into small pieces= very rich, oh so good with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!
