MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!!!

Better Than A Hug Cake

Oh my sweet, sweet, friends…..THIS is THE cake to make! It is extremely moist, the crushed toffee gives it a sweet/savory taste, and there is an amazing mix of textures…YUMMY! This is one of my hubby’s favorites! (and my guilty pleasure too..shhh) I made this last night for my church ABF get-together and it was a hit.

A dark chocolate cake out of the oven (I used a Duncan Hines box mix), 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 6 Heath bars, 1 large container of whipped topping, chocolate syrup, caramel syrup.

When the cake is still warm, poke holes throughout…I just used a fork

Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over top the cake (I used a butter knife to evened it out over top-it will eventually saturate into the cake)

Crush Heath bars in a large Ziploc

Squeeze chocolate and caramel over top of cake and top with 3/4 of the crushed Heath bars.

Then, top carefully with your Cool-whip

Drizzle caramel and chocolate over top of that and sprinkle with remaining Heath bars.

Might be one of the best things I have ever tasted…(oh, and I will tell on myself..this is the piece I had for breakfast..lol! it was small?)
