Better than Everything Cake

Get ready for an easy recipe for an amazing cake.
Normally, I am not a fan of cake.
I like cupcakes, but cake? ehhh. Not my favorite.
But this cake? This cake is really good!
When I worked at our church as Assistant Director of Student Ministries, I made this cake a lot for our girls Bible Study & for the Christmas Progressive Dinner. It feeds a lot...and is SO easy to make!

Here is what you need for:
Better than Everything Cake
- Box of chocolate cake mix
- can of sweetened condensed milk
-jar of caramel
-4 Heath Bars (or Skor Bars)
- Whipping Cream (or you can use Cool Whip)

Make Chocolate Cake according to package directions in a 9x13 pan:
Let cool for 10 minutes & then poke holes in top using the handle of a wooden spoon:
Pour can of Condensed Milk over top of cake.
(I don't use the whole can...about 3/4 of it)
I also lightly run a knife over it to make sure the milk is spread out.
Then pour about half the caramel on top:
I like this brand because it is squeezable & easy to use. But, any brand is fine.
Cover the cake with foil & put in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
2 hours later, your cake will look like this with everything soaked in:
Get your 4 Heath Bars out & put them in a zip lock to crush them up. I always use a rolling pin:
Yum.
Sprinkle half the Heath Bar on the cake:
Then, make your whipping cream (Or get out your Cool Whip)
I always add a little vanilla & couple heaps of sugar to make the whipping cream sweeter.
Spread out the whipping cream over the top of the cake:
Then, add the rest of the Heath Bar:
When I serve it, I always add extra caramel on top:
Seriously, so good.
This is an easy & delicious cake that is a real crowd pleaser.
What's not to love?
Chocolate? Yum.
Caramel? Yum.
Whipping Cream? Yum.
Heath Bar? Yum. Yum. Yum.

Enjoy!
