Ultimate Chocolate Cake

This Ultimate Chocolate Cake Recipe is a moist chocolate cake, carmel, toffee candy, chocolate shavings and whipped topping……need I say more?  When you serve this cake, everyone wants the recipe. Using a package cake mix makes it an easy but decadent dessert!  

  • 1 package devil’s food cake mix (I prefer Pillsbury)
  • 7/8 C canned sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 C carmel ice cream topping (I prefer Hersheys)
  • 4 Health chocolate covered toffee bars (chopped in small pieces)
  • 2 small Hershey chocolate bars, using a peeler to make shavings
  • 1 ( 8 0z) container cool whip topping, thawed

Bake cake according to package directions for a 9X13 inch pan, cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Make slits with a knife across the top of the cake, making sure not to go through to the bottom.

In a saucepan over low heat, combine sweetened condensed milk and carmel topping, stirring until smooth and blended. Slowly pour the warm topping mixture over the top of the warm cake, letting it sink into the slits, spreading if necessary. Sprinkle half of the crushed Health bar over the entire cake while still warm.

Let cake cool completely, then top with cool whip topping and decorate top of the cake with remaining Health bar pieces and chocolate shavings. You can add swirls of any remaining carmel topping if desired. Refrigerate. The cake becomes more moist after being refrigerated overnight.
