    foxysnana's Note:

    This is chocolate paradise! I am a severe chocoholic and this fills the bill for ooey, gooey, and oh so good. This is from a friend that I used to go to church with. I helped a boy make this for a bake-off at church and he won first prize. My sister donated a certificate for this cake to a charity auction and the woman that bought it has called 4 times since then to have me to make this for her.

      Oh my gosh this cake is amazing. I came across it during a search for an old fashioned chocolate cake for my son...I made it for a neighbor's party & it was a HUGE hit. Especially for all the Chocolate Lover's. I was then asked by one of the party goer's to make it for her birthday.

      I did use a bigger pan (11x15) the second time. It worked much better. You just need a pan bigger than a 13x9. With the 13x9 there isn't enough room for all the topping. I used a Double Fudge cake mix both times & it was DELICIOUS. Very rich. I put the sweetened condensed milk on when the cake was just a tad bit warm. It runs right into the holes & down the sides. The fudge too!! YUMMY.

      I have sense made this cake a third time. But this time I made it for a summer dessert. I used a butter cake mix with the sweetened condensed milk & then sliced fresh strawberries. Again, it was a HIT at the party. It was so refreshing but yet rich & yummy. I was asked if it was Tres Leche. Similarly but no. I didn't use any fruit topping. I just had cake, milk, strawberries, whipped topping & then strawberries to garnish the top. I think any berries would be good.

      ENJOY....Definitely one of my favorite cakes.

      This recipe is very very moist, I made it for a work potluck and everyone who could eat chocolate (we have a few people with chocophobia) ate this and raved about it. just a couple hints tips changes. First, I used a dark chocolate cake, and i used Dark chocolate fudge from smuckers it's new) I used 3 heath bars, and i added some fudge sauce to the top along with the caramel. (i drizzled both and it made the cake look amazing.) using the back of a wooden spoon to make holes is a great idea. The fudge and the condensed milk have a really hard time soaking into the cake if you do not do this. (i drizzled the liquids directly into the holes i made) I used a 11 by 9 inch pan and had plenty of room for the toppings. thanks for sharing.

      Let me say that this cake is really good! I will change a couple of things next time however. I will bake it either in a bigger pan (11X15) or in two 8X8 pans because it is too thick in the 9X13. Plus if I make two cakes then I can wait to put the cool whip on the second one until ready to eat so it doesn't get soggy with the candy pieces (Butterfinger would be yummy). Also, I will pour the fudge and milk over while the cake is still hot. Overall however this is a great cake my 13yr old son made for me for Mother's Day and we really enjoyed it! Thanks!
