Better than what cake?!

SEX.  I said it.  This cake is, well it's not really but this is a PG blog, better than sex cake!  My friends ask for this cake by name and I'm here to share it with you.  I'm sure this recipe like many other popular ones are called by many names but I prefer:  Better than SEX cake!

You will need:
1 pkg Chocolate Devil's Food Cake + required ingredients
Cool Whip (get the big one!  I also use the sugar free/light one- shhhhh!)
1/2 can Condensed Milk
6 oz Carmel Ice Cream Topping (sf works too!)
4-5 Heath Bars 

Directions

Bake cake according to package directions for a 9x13 inch pan; cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Make slits across the top of the cake, making sure not to go through to the bottom.

In a saucepan over low heat, combine sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping, stirring until smooth and blended. Slowly pour the warm topping mixture over the top of the warm cake, letting it sink into the slits;

Crush the candy!  *Tip* use a plastic bag for easier clean up!

(Hint: I crush my candy bars into small chunks as opposed to crumbs - I like to have pieces I can chew on!)

Sprinkle the crushed chocolate toffee bars liberally across the entire cake while still warm.

Um... better than what?  YUM!
Let cake cool completely, then top with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with some more chocolate toffee bar chunks and swirls of caramel topping. Refrigerate and serve right from the pan!

You will fall in love with this cake, but don't let the name fool you- it can't handle ALL your needs!  

Try these awesome variations:

Better than Christmas cake: Add a dabble, yes that's how I measure, of peppermint extract to caramel sauce (use less caramel, more condensed milk) and replace heath bars with candy canes or chocolate peppermint bark!

Better than Fall cake: Use yellow cake, candied apple slices instead of the candy bars and add 1tbs vanilla to cool whip.  Yum!

Better then Pumpkin cake: Use yellow cake with 3 tbs pumpkin pie spice added to mix, add canned pumpkin/2tbs (or more!) pumpkin pie spice to cool whip and top with pecans!

Those were just off the top of my head!  Booyah!  I may be a cooking savant.  We shall seeee!  Unless they're bad, then I had nothing to do with it.

Until next time...
