Tasty Tuesdays- Better than ... cake

We've all heard of it, either because it is delicious or because its name makes your mom blush, but Better Than Sex cake is not some weird or crazy recipe, it is delicious and pretty easy to make.

You will need:
a chocolate cake, you can make it from scratch or go the simple way and use a box. I usually use a box. After you cake is done, make long cuts into it, something like this.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
 1/4-1/2 cup of caramel ice cream topping depending on how much you like your caramel.
whipped topping
crushed candy bars, most people use Butterfingers, I use Heath pieces because my little girl is allergic to peanuts

Mix your sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping together. Pour over your cake and allow time for it to sink in. I gave mine about 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes cover the cake in whipped topping and then top with your crushed candy bars. Resist the temptation to eat the entire pan just because you can.

I remember my dad making a cake with the same name, but for some reason, I remember it being a fruit kind of thing. Hmmm...either way, I think I'm going to make this for my next dessert duty!

Remember that time we made this? And then ate most of it in one night? Yum :)

Ha! I've never heard of the cake, but I have had better than sex PIE, which is graham cracker crust, chocolate pudding and Cool Whip. This cake sounds delicious :)
