1 jar Hot fudge topping, divided

Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 10 inch springform pan
Mix turtle brownie mix according to directions on box. Pour into prepared
pan and bake at recommended temperature on box. Remove from oven 5 to 10
minutes before the recommended time on the box, so that the brownie is still
gooey. Let turtle brownie cake cool completely.
Remove ice cream from freezer and let it soften about 5 minutes. While ice cream is softening, spread 1/2 of the hot fudge topping on top of turtle brownie and sprinkle with half of the nuts, reserving 1/2 for the top of Turtle brownie ice cream cake. Scoop all of the ice cream on top of the hot fudge and nuts, spreading evenly with a knife or spatula. Freeze turtle brownie cake until ready to eat.
Remove from freezer and remove the sides from the pan, using the bottom of flat pan as a serving plate.
The remaining hot fudge can then be heated in the microwave and poured over the top of each separate ice cream cake serving. Add more nuts on top as desired.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get cool butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.
You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.
Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.
The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
