I received this recipe from a coworker when I was working in Southern Illinois. She called it "Better Than Sex Cake" and it really is amazing. I have decided to call it "Gooey Heath Bar Cake" because there have been times when I have brought it to a party (like my Grandmother's 70th birthday party) and "Gooey Heath Bar Cake" just seems better! Now, this cake truly is amazing. It's rich and delicious, but really easy to put together. It's great for a potluck or summer party, too. Just remember, it's really rich!! Just like Paula Dean says, "I'm you're cook, not your doctor!" So, consider yourself warned!!
Gooey Heath Bar Cake (or B.T.S. Cake)
1 Box Devils food cake mix (and all the ingredients needed to make it - typically egg, water, and oil)
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 small jar hot fudge topping
1 canister Cool Whip
5 lg Heath Bars, crushed (I have also gotten the mini Heath bars and just used a few handfuls and saved the rest for later!)
Make the Devil's food cake mix according to the box directions. While warm, poke holes all over the cake - lots and lots of holes!! Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake and set aside. Let the cake cool completely.
Once cooled, spread the hot fudge topping all over the cake. Place in the refrigerator and allow to chill completely, or overnight. When chilled, top with Cool Whip. Sprinkle Heath pieces all over the top. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve!
