When deciding what recipes to put on this Blog, I decided the first one needed to be dessert. Sometimes we just need to have dessert first. I went to my cookbook and decided that this one would be a good one to start with. I have always loved it and anybody that has ever eaten it, has loved it.
Step #1 Gather the Ingredients and Equipment
- I used the Brand of Cake mix that was on sale this week. I wondered about experimenting with different flavors of cake mix or even different types of ice cream topping.
- I have a Bosch and so I used it with the wire whisk attachments to mix my cake. You can use electric beaters or a hand whisk.

What is the difference between Heath and Skor?
I have always wondered what the difference between a Heath bar and a Skor bar, so I bought them both to try at the same time. They pretty much looked the same and both tasted REALLY good. The Toffee in the Skor bar was a darker color and had a stronger flavor. The Heath bar was lighter and had more of a buttery flavor. Try them both. Also, try different candy bars. I love Heath and Skor but I am also partial to Reeses. You could also use Oreos or other types of cookies.
Step #2 Bake the Cake
- Bake the cake according to the directions on the package. It seems that each brand of cake is a little different so read the directions.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees or 325 for
darkpan. Generously grease pans and dust with flour.
- I used cooking spray.
- Blend in
largemixing bowl at low speed until moistened: Cake mix, 3 eggs, 1/3 cup oil, 1 cup water. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed or 450 strokes by hand. Pour batter into pan.
- I used a Bosch mixer to mix mine.
- Bake at 350 degrees until done–23-28 minutes.
- I baked mine for 23 minutes.
Step #3 Kid’s lick the beaters
Okay, so you probably shouldn’t let the kids eat cake batter because of that whole no raw egg thing, so then you better eat the batter.
Step #4 mix caramel and milk
- Mix the sweetened condensed milk with the Caramel ice cream topping together.
- Poke holes with a
fork inthe warm cake after you take it out of the oven. I thought it needed bigger holes, so after I poked it with the fork, I put a few holes throughout the cake with the round end of a wooden spoon.
- Pour the Caramel topping over the top. I only used about 2/3 of the mixture. You can use the whole thing but I didn’t think it needed it. Although, I’m not sure what to do with the leftovers. I wondered about making some cupcakes and using the leftover Caramel mixture in it.
- It doesn’t look like it is soaking in but just wait a minute and it will.
Step #5 Put it in the fridge until cool
Step #6 Chop the Candy bars into small pieces, or big ones if you prefer.
Step #7 Spread Cool Whip over the cooled cake.
Step #8 Sprinkle candy pieces over the top of the cake.
Step #9 Enjoy
