Chocolate Pumpkin Tres Leches Cake


Chocolate Pumpkin Tres Leches Cake, it's a delicious mouthful of ooey gooey goodness! My husband loves Tres Leches Cake, so with Fall quickly approaching I decided to combine his love of Tres Leches Cake and my love of all things pumpkin to create some sort of mouth-watering dessert. Mission accomplished! This recipe was a piece of cake (pun intended, hehe) and ooohhh sooo yummy! I don't think my husband will ever see Tres Leches cake the same, he literally screamed, "That was amazing!", after taking his last bite!

Ingredients

1 cup from a 15oz can of pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie mix)
1 box yellow cake mix
3 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1 heaping tablespoon of cinnamon
1 heaping tablespoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 jar Hershey's chocolate sauce (12.8oz jar)
1/2 jar Hershey's caramel sauce (12.8oz jar)
1 jar of whipped white frosting
2 small (2oz) bags of chopped pecans

**This is an EXTREMELY rich dessert! If you would prefer it to be a little less rich, try using 1/4 jar of the chocolate sauce and 1/4 of the caramel sauce.**

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 13x9 inch pan. In a large bowl, beat cake mix with pumpkin, water, eggs, oil, and spices with an electric mixer until well combined. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 28 to 30 minutes.

Remove cake from oven when done and immediately poke about 24 holes into the cake with a wooden spatula or spoon, about one inch apart and one inch deep. Quickly fill each of the holes with sweetened condensed milk and drizzle the rest over the top of the cake. Let stand for about 5 minutes or until the condensed milk is almost fully absorbed into the cake. Once absorbed, place 1/2 of the Hershey's chocolate sauce in the microwave and heat for about 20 seconds or until smooth. Pour the chocolate sauce into the holes of the cake. Pour 1/2 of the Hershey's caramel sauce into the holes of the cake. Cover the cake and place in the fridge for about two hours or until fully chilled. Remove cake from the fridge and ice. Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle with remaining caramel before serving. Refrigerate leftovers...if there are any!

  10. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
