Hubby loved it. I exchanged the whipped topping with fresh whipped cream, without extra sugar, but I also poured chocolate sauce with the caramel and condensed milk and a layer of crushed nuts between the cake and the topping. I never heard about Heath bars and i couldnt find any so i just left it out and decorated with chocolate sauce and nuts. Very moist cake, of course with all that extra stuff i put on, the cake couldnt suck in all the fluids and it was a puddle in the bottom of the dish :-)

Good grief woman...this is an amazing cake that will cure any sweet tooth! I got nothing but ooh's and aah's from the time that I cut it all the way until I was cleaning up everyone's dishes. I wish that I could give this more stars. It's so easy to put together too. Thank you so much for posting!!
