Heath Bar Cake

Happy Birthday to my sweet husband, Richie!  I love you!

Turning 95 this year.

Birthday Kissie Face

 This recipe is in honor of Rich today as he requested this cake, that Shauna normally makes, for his birthday.  It's delicious and I can't believe this hasn't been posted already.  Enjoy!

1 box chocolate cake mix (Chocolate, Devil's Food or German Chocolate*)
1 jar caramel ice cream topping
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 container whipped cream, thawed
4-6 Heath bars (or Skor bars) broken up or 1 package toffee bits

Make cake according to package directions in a 9" x 13" pan.  Remove from oven and immediately poke with a fork or end of a wooden spoon, all over the cake.  Pour caramel topping and sweetened condensed milk all over the cake, filling in the holes.  Let cool.  Spread whipped cream over the cake, then sprinkle with candy bits.

This is what happens when no one can wait long enough for the cake to cool.

*I never really knew the difference between the different chocolate cake mixes, so here's what I found out from my research:

  • Regular Chocolate: flavored with milk chocolate
  • Devil's Food: richer and darker, strong cocoa flavor.
  • German Chocolate: usually a lighter-colored cake with a mild flavor of mild chocolate.
What's your favorite?
