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)
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel
1 container Cool Whip
4 Heath Bars
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)
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:
chop & pulse until you get a nice sprinkling consistency.
then sprinkle the cake with the Heath Bar bits.
