Chocolate Cake with Toffee and Caramel

The young men and women from my church had an Etiquette dinner last night. My husband works with the 14 & 15 year old boys, and it was their job to make the dessert. So a few of them came over to my house ahead of time and made this really yummy dessert. We have a bunch of amazing youth in our area, so I actually enjoyed it. Really. I was told when the dinner was over that it was the hit of the night. So if a bunch of teenage boys can make this cake, I guarantee that it will work for you.

There are more titles for this cake than just about any recipe I’ve ever come across. Some of them are funny, some of them are not what I’d call “family friendly”. We just call it Evil Chocolate Cake at our house. Whatever you call it, it is sinfully good!
I’m not a really big fan of cake, so it has to be really good for me to enjoy it. I have to tape the refrigerator door closed to stop me from eating this one. It’s that good! The caramel sauce sinks down into the cake and makes it all gooey and moist. And the toffee chips on top are so, so yummy.

chocolate-cake-recipe Chocolate Cake with Toffee and Caramel

1 chocolate cake mix, prepared according to package directions
1/2 of a 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 of a 12 oz can of caramel ice cream topping
8oz Cool Whip
3 or 4  Skor bars, crushed

Use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake, about an inch apart. (Try not to poke them all the way to the bottom or the sauce will pool in the bottom of the pan and make the cake soggy.) Mix together sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping in a saucepan and heat over medium heat till warm. Pour slowly over the cake, trying to get most of the sauce into the holes. Sprinkle with half of the crushed Skor bars. Spread Cool Whip over the top. Chill for at least an hour, but a few hours is better. Sprinkle remaining Skor pieces on top before serving.
Notes:
-If you can’t find Skor bars, Heath will work just as well.
-To crush the Skor bars, I just leave them in the wrapper and hit them a few times with my rolling pin.
-I like Duncan Hines cake mix the best because it is always moist. You could also make this with your own recipe for chocolate cake.
-This cake tastes even better the next day–if it lasts that long.
