Turtle Poke Cake

This turtle poke cake is fantastic.  I’ve made it several times in the past few months.  My kids are asking for it.  It calls for caramel sweetened condensed milk, which is a special flavor.  If you can’t find it, then you can use caramel from the ice cream section of the grocery store.

You are going to love this fantastic tasting chocolate turtle poke cake. It's so moist and flavorful. You'll want to save this recipe.
