Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This Recipe was a complicated disaster. This Recipe was a complicated disaster. First of all the caramels are individually wrapped so it takes several minutes to unwrap all of them. My Grocery store didn't carry the chocolate chunks so I used Baker's baking bar instead. When I tried to cut it into chunks it just crumbled. I was expecting the cake mix to look like the consistency of regular cake mix but it resembled brown sugar. It would be helpful if they mentioned this. When i finally got ready for the caramel mix it was stuck in the pan I tried reheating it but that didn't really help. Then to top it all of I discovered the bottom coil of my oven had broken! So I had to broil it and Broil is only high or low it doesn't tell you the temperature. So it took 3 times to get it done. And this was all before church yesterday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been making these for over ten years and they are always a hit. I have been making these for over ten years and they are always a hit. I use chocolate chips instead of chunks, and I always skip the step of scattering more chocolate and nuts on top of the second layer of cake mix/dough. In my experience, they don't ever really adhere very well, and tend to fall off and be messy. I can get plenty of nuts and chips directly on top of the caramel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! WOW!! This went over big on Bunko night! All the gals loved it. I used walnuts for a Turtle twist, it was so easy to make, but it doesn't look or taste like it. I refrigerated it for a couple hours before I cut into it, and it was a perfect conistency! I will make this again and again and again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure to let cool completely or caramel will be too chewy; great with or without nuts! Make sure to let cool completely or caramel will be too chewy; great with or without nuts! Next time I want to try it with semi-sweet morsels instead of baking squares for an easier recipe; also, I want to try it with pecans instead of walnuts for a "turtle treat"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this recipe. I loved this recipe. They were absolutely delicious!! The only thing I did different was I bought devil's chocolate cake mix because as I was shopping I forgot what kind was onn the recipe. I also used the WHOLE bag of chocolate chunks because I LOVE chocolate!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy and delicious! Very easy and delicious! It is helpful to make the crust first and then warm up the caramels while the crust bakes. That way the caramels do not harden back after you have heated them and they are ready to pour on the crust by the time it finishes in the oven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I dreamed about this dessert after it was all gone and I cannot wait to make it again! I dreamed about this dessert after it was all gone and I cannot wait to make it again!! It certainly is a big crowd pleaser and easy (yet sticky) to make. I let mine chill overnight in the refridgerator and still had a little trouble getting it to cut into bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Wonderful! I chilled the bars for several hours as another baker suggested and found them very hard to cut. After sitting on the counter for a while, they were much easier to cut so I won't chill for as long in the future. Gooey and delicious!
