How to Make better than anything cake
CAKE. Make as directed on back of box. While warm, poke holes in the cake with the bottom of a wooden spoon.
SAUCE. Pour sweetened condensed milk over cake and into holes. Pour caramel sauce over cake as well. Chill cake for 2-3 hours.
TOPPINGS. Right before serving, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with toffee bits.
Note: Be sure you buy sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk.
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.
This dessert can be made 1-2 days in advance. STORE it, covered, in the refrigerator. Add the cool whip and candy toppings right before serving.
You can also buy a plain chocolate cake from the bakery and then add the caramel, condensed milk, and toppings..
STORE covered in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
To FREEZE, make as instructed and then before adding the cool whip and topping cover it tightly with plastic wrap and foil. Then freeze it for 1-2 months.
Let it THAW in the fridge for a few hours before serving. When ready to serve add cool whip and toppings.
