I'm a big fan of caramel and butterscotch. So when I found this recipe, I couldn't wait to make it. The cake I made is what candy lovers would call a Turtle cake. Bake your favorite chocolate cake, grab a bag of pecan halves/pieces and bring it all together with this Caramel Butter Frosting that is sure to become a family favorite.
