MilSpouses Rock! Blog Carnival Day 6: What's Cookin'

Today we are supposed to share our favorite recipe but this is kind of difficult for me. There are things I cook but alot of things I don't have a set recipe for. So here it goes...

Heath Bar Cake

1 box Chocolate Cake Mix of choice
1 bottle of Caramel Ice Cream Topping of choice
1 container of Cool Whip (found in the freezer section)
2 Heath Candy Bars

13x9 Cake Pan
1 Plastic Straw (like from a fast food restaurant)
1 Sandwich bag with closure

1. Place the Heath Candy Bars in the freezer. We will get back to those later but they'll be more cooperative if frozen.
2. Prepare the 13x9 pan per the Cake Mix's instructions.
3. Prepare the Cake Mix per the box's instructions and bake as directed.
4. After removing the cake from the oven, while it is still warm, poke holes in the cake with the plastic straw (I put the holes about an inch apart from each other) and pour as much of the bottle of caramel ice cream topping (depending on size I usually use half the bottle) evenly over the still warm cake.
5. Let the cake cool completely.
6. After the cake is cool, spread the cool whip topping evenly over the cake.
7. Put the, hopefully, frozen Heath Candy Bars in the sandwich bag and crush into pieces. I normally use a meat tenderizer hammer to crush the candy bars but the sandwich bag helps contain the crumbs. The bag might get small holes in it so be careful.
8. Sprinkle the crushed up Heath Candy Bars evenly over the cool whip on the cake.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. Also refrigerate left overs. This is because of the cool whip.
