Oh Boy is that EVER a rich cake!!!! My mom loves Turtles so I made this for her birthday. The only change I made was in the caramel sauce...I used roughly half the amount of evaporated milk and butter and increased the caramels by roughly half. The sauce was nice and thick and unbelievably sweet and buttery. I made a glaze of 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, 3 tbsp of strong coffee, 1 tbsp of brandy and 1 tbsp of butter, melted it all gently in a double boiler and poured it over the top of the cake. It was just like a real turtle. The only thing I found was lacking was that the cake (Devil's food) was too fluffy and not dense enough. If I make this again, I think I'm going to use the "Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake" found on this site instead. That's why it only got 4 stars.
