We have an event to go to tomorrow evening and are expected to bring a dessert. I made it last year, so I’m going to make it again this year… Better than sex cake! Is it really better than sex?! I don’t think so, but it is super delish 😉 And seems to be a big hit every time I make it. It is an extremely rich dessert, but it satisfies your sweet tooth! This would be a great little dessert to make for your hunny on Valentine’s Day (no pun intended!) to enjoy after a romantic dinner! Here’s what you’re going to need :
- One box of Devils Food Cake mix
- 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 6 ounces of caramel ice cream topping
- Toffee bits
- One 8 ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
To begin, prepare your cake mix as suggested on the box. Normally, you will need to add: cake mix, 1 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup oil and 3 eggs, mix well. Cook cake completely, depending on your pan size. I used a 13X9 inch pan, so about 35 minutes at 350. Once your cake is done, let cool for five minutes. Cut slits throughout the cake, not deep enough to touch the bottom of the pan though. In a small saucepan, over low heat, heat caramel ice cream topping and sweetened condensed milk together, stirring until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour sweet mixture over the top of the cake equally. Once you have covered the length of the cake with the sweet mixture, top with toffee bits. Let this cool completely. To complete your cake, stir the thawed whipped topping to ensure a smooth texture. Top the entire cake with the whipped topping. Sprinkle remaining toffee bits onto the top and drizzle caramel and chocolate syrup for appeal! Refrigerate for at least one hour prior to serving. This gives the sweet mixture, of caramel and sweetened condensed milk, time to soak into the cake creating a divine sweetness. And voila, you’ve got yourself a very yummy, and crowd pleasing dessert!
