Variations

Change the toffee bits for crushed up Reese’s, Oreos, Butterfingers, Heath bar or even chopped nuts. 

Real whipped cream, that is homemade and not from the can, can be used in place of the cool whip.

Instead of chocolate, you can use other cake flavors such as carrot, strawberry, vanilla and more.
