Been making this cake for years. Even those who balk at making desserts from mixes love it. It's addicting.

This is the type of cake that tastes moist and homemade due to the addition or the caramel sauce and the fluffy whipped topping. The crunchy topping adds texture and interest to this simple-to-make cake. You can make this cake with other crushed candy bars of your choice or skip the crunchy topping and sprinkle mini chocolate bits on top for appearance and taste.

Shame on you for posting this recipe! Do you know how many pounds I'm going to gain now that I've made this and can't stop eating it? LOLOL! Thank you - it's amazing. And so simple. Which could be a bad thing since it might mean I'll be making it frequently. Only change I made was to use a dark chocolate cake because the store didn't have german chocolate.

My only regret when I brought this to our office party was only making one cake. It was gone almost instantly. Everyone thought it was incredible.

So, my only complaint is about the directions. A pencil? Please - use a straw or chopstick, not a pencil! Now that is out of the way, this cake is freaking amazing! Yes, it's made from a bunch of mixes and cans and stuff that's not good for you and probably totally unnatural but if you want to hear ooooohs and ahhhhhs from everyone eating it with their eyes rolling back in their heads, then this is the dessert.

OMG!!! I don't like to bake but I was going to a picnic and they told me to bring desert. I saw this recipe and it looked simple. I had to give the recipe to 5 people at the picnic. This was awesome

Reading the reviews I decided to skip the chocolate chips and use chocolate syrup instead. After making it and eating some I definitely recommend that because the chocolate chips would be very hard to bite into since this is chilled. It's delicious and SOOOOOOOO rich so serve it in small portions (except to chocoholics like my husband who practically ate half the pan!)

So easy to make and absolutely delicious! I just buy the bag of Heath bar bits in the baking aisle. Even better on day 2 if it lasts that long.

I used to make this cake using chocolate sweetened condensed milk but I can't find that anymore. It's also good with the regular milk. I might try mixing some chocolate syrup into the milk next time to see if that gets close.
