20
caramels, unwrapped
1/3

1/3
cup whipping (heavy) cream
1
cup chopped pecans, toasted
1
container Betty Crocker™ Whipped chocolate frosting

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans, or spray with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for two 8-inch or 9-inch rounds. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

(Or place caramels, butter and whipping cream in 4-cup glass measuring cup; microwave uncovered on High 1 to 3 minutes, stirring once or twice.) Stir pecans into melted caramel. Cool 30 to 45 minutes or until firm enough to spread without running over edge of cake.
  • 4 Place 1 cake layer on plate, round side down. Spread with 1 cup of the pecan filling. Top with second layer, round side up. Spread remaining pecan filling into 4- to 5-inch circle on top of cake. Spread chocolate frosting on rest of top and side of cake. Store loosely covered.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Toasted slivered almonds, macadamia nuts or walnuts are all great substitutes for the pecans.

To toast nuts, bake them uncovered in an ungreased shallow pan in a 350°F oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Or cook them in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until they’re light brown.

For a bakery special touch, gently press pecan halves around the frosted edge on top of the cake.
