"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!"
"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."
"This is exactly the one I make and everyone LOVES it. I can't imagine getting more compliments for less effort. "
"I find this recipe hard to follow because im in australia and need to find similar ingredients."
"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."
"Tasty dessert that is liked by DH. Thank you!"
"This is a great cake and one you can change around. I make this with carrot cake and frost with cool whip FROSTING not the cool whip. I used chocolate frosting and crushed butterfingers. Either way it is so good. Leave it in the pan at least overnight in fridge."
"I really expected more from this cake, with all the rave reviews, and I followed the recipe to the letter. Was disappointed because the milk and caramel soaked the edges, but the middle was just plain cake. I thought with it sitting that long it would soak up better. Just average, would not make again."
"This turned out good. Very rich and moist. Much better than a plain chocolate cake."
"Very good cake, worth making."
"I made this cake for a party yesterday and it was a hit!! Great receipe and very easy. Wonderful for a party because you can make the night before."
"Good cake, makes a lot of servings, 15 I would say. I needed to 'baste' the top of the cake to get all of the sauces into it and wound up using a bigger diameter spoon handle. Otherwise, very easy."
"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."
"I made this cake with low sugar products but it did not change the taste any as it was wonderful and moist and yummy."
