Heath Bar Cake

oh. my. goodness.
this cake is awesome. and easy. perfection. loved by all. seriously.
i made it for the husband's birthday & he loved it. as did his parents, and his work & my work.
like i said- all.

Heath Bar Cake (also referred to as the Better Than Sex Cake)

You Need:
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel
1 container Cool Whip
4 Heath Bars

Directions:
Bake the Devil's Food Cake according to the package directions. Once the cake is done, allow to cool for 10-15 min. You can leave the cake in the pan or transfer it to a serving/carry dish (if you're going to transfer it make sure you grease/flour your baking pan REALLY well so that the cake comes right out & you don't end up with a pile of broken Devil's Food)

Poke holes all over the cake with a wooden spoon handle, fork- etc etc. whatever you've got (i used a chopstick)
Once the cake has been sufficiently stabbed- slowly pour the entire can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake. Then slowly pour about 3/4 of the jar of caramel over the top as well (i poured the caramel into a Pyrex measuring cup & heated it up for about 30 seconds)

it'll look scary wet- don't be scared. everything soaks in quite nicely.

pop the cake in the fridge overnight to let it all meld. you should REALLY make this cake the day before- the longer it soaks the better! i made it on a wed night & served it on a thursday night. 24 hours worth of soakage!

pull the cake out & clean off the edges of the serving platter (if you transferred it)- otherwise, no worries. cover the cake with the Cool Whip:

then break up the Heath Bars & pop them into the food processor:

chop & pulse until you get a nice sprinkling consistency.

then sprinkle the cake with the Heath Bar bits.

Keep the cake refrigerated until you're ready to serve. Then try not to eat an inappropriate amount.
Pin It!

He-he, the name of this recipe in my cookbook is "Better then Sex". One of my favorite cake recipes but I use butterfingers.
