I sure can vouch for this one. I've made this at least a dozen times in the past two years and have always recieved many compliments! This was known to me as the "better than sex" cake, and most people blushingly agree when they taste it that it's title lives up to it's name!

I have made this cake many times and it is always a hit. Try replacing the dark chocolate cake mix with German Chocolate cake mix for a less chocolate cake. It is good also.

I made this cake for my wife and she took it to her work and everyone wants me to make one for them.

This is the one! I've made it for years. I used German Chocolate cake mix and Heath bits; everything else the same. And make it in the morning - can't plan ahead well enough to chill overnight!

I hadn't had this cake for years! so glad I found the recipe...I made this cake and my husband and I tried a peice without the whipped topping and it was DELISH even without it. I forgot to use the candy bar, It doesn't really need it. I probably only used 3/4 the jar of caramel topping...everything turned out perfect. Very decedent cake!

I have been making this cake for over 30 years. It is always requested at holiday time. I do mine in a bunt pan. It looks nice and I have a special hole maker that fits on top of the cake and makes uniform holes all around. My husband breaks the Heath bars.

Yummo! I used a box of yellow cake instead of chocolate and it was to die for. I tried making them into cupcakes but the SCM and caramel sauce made the outside of the cupcake super sticky%u2026so from now on I%u2019ll probably stick to making it as a cake instead. Overall, it was super easy recipe with delicious results.

This is one of our friends favorite cakes that I make. Its a fabulous cake. I used a devil foods cake mix and fellow the direction on back of the box and bake as stated for a 13x9 pan (35minutes) Than I poke holes in the cake and heat up the sweetened condensed milk with Hershey's carmel ice cream topping and than pour over cake. I use 3 Skor candy bars (crushed) and sprinkle over top of cake. I than let cool completely than spread the cool whip over top of cake and 3 more crushed up Skor bars. Its a rich cake but "all so " DELICIOUS!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This cake was good, but not outstanding. It LOOKED beautiful (used crushed Butterfingers), but I agree with someone else that the condensed milk doesn't do that much for it ... It was good but just good.
