Skor or Heath Bar Cake

"Tomorrow (December 3) is my DH's birthday, and he requested a Skor 2-layer cake. After looking at several recipes on 'Zaar, this is what I ended up making. It's more of a process than a recipe, though. I used milk chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate frosting, but you can use any variety. We haven't tasted it yet; I will post an update when we do."

Ready In:
1 2-layer cake


  • 1 (2 1/4 ounce) box chocolate cake mix, prepared according to directions with water, oil, and eggs
  • 1 (16 ounce) container chocolate frosting
  • 34 - 1 cup Heath candy bars (Bits O'Brickle) or 3/4-1 cup Skor English toffee bit, toffee bar bits (Bits O'Brickle)
  • 1 12 cups caramel ice cream topping (I used Smucker's)


  • Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box for either two 8-inch or 9-inch layers. This step can be done a day in advance, provided that the layers are completely cooled before wrapping in nonstick aluminum foil.
  • Assemble the cake by placing one layer on the end destination plate/platter. Spread the top ONLY with 1/2 of the caramel topping, allowing a little bit to dribble down the sides.
  • Place the second layer on top of the caramel-topped first layer. Spread the remaining caramel on top of the second layer.
  • Frost the cake with the chocolate frosting. It is okay (even preferable) for the caramel and chocolate frosting to blend a bit.
  • On top of the frosting on the top layer, lightly press in the toffee bits until the top is coated. Although I didn't do so, you can also press toffee bits into the sides if enough remain.

<p>I teach middle school ELA in a public school here. I like to cook sauces mostly. I have just begun to cook OAMC and make-ahead since acquiring a chest deep freeze. I love looking at all of the posted recipes on here! My day begins with checking out the previous day's new recipes add-ons, the chef of the day, and the most recent forum postings for OAMC. My pet peeves are Curry Chicken from a local restaurant (which seems to go with the more curry powder is more theory) and people who don't like flavorful foods. Update (5 months late, but sue me):&nbsp; I am the proud mama of a beautiful red-haired boy as of April 26, 2010.&nbsp; Already, his favorite foods are:&nbsp; bananas, carrots, pumpkin, applesauce, and roasted pears.&nbsp; He doesn't like potatoes; I know, go figure.</p> <p><img src= alt= /></p>
