Heath Bar Cake

8:19 AM

I've posted this recipe before, but it is good so here it is again.

Back in high school my friend and I were at her Aunts house.  Her Aunt made this for dessert.  It is a simple concept that you just throw together - use as much Heath as you like.  Also, I still think it tastes best when you buy the heath bars and crush them up in a little food processor.

Here is what you will need:

Betty Crocker White Cake mix - the only white cake mix I will buy (This probably sounds weird but the others remind me of playdough - the smell of it runs into the taste - it's not for me :) - I decided to share that so if you have had boxed white cake mix and hated it that might be why - stick with Betty!)

You will also need the eggs and Crisco vegetable oil to make the cake.  I make it the 3 egg white way.

Sanders Butterscotch Caramel dessert topping - Sanders is a Detroit classic, but you can use any caramel sauce

Original Cool Whip - let it come to room temp. so you can spread it

Heath Bars - I usually chop up the candy bars in a food processor.  Sometimes I grab a bag of Health pieces that they have near the chocolate chip area.  It works either way, but I think it tastes better using the candy bars.  If you want to use candy bars you will need 6 of them.  I used 5 last time I made this cake.

To assemble:

Make your cake mix as directed on the box.  After you have it all mixed and ready add 3/4 cups of crushed Heath.  You can add more or less if you wish - then just mix this in well, and pour batter into pan of choice.  I usually just use a 9 x 13 inch glass Pyrex dish, but I have to say the layer cake I just made was amazing!  You get more caramel sauce this way.  Bake the cake according to the package directions.

After the cake has cooled completely add a layer of caramel sauce - just like you would use frosting.  In the first photo I used 2 round cake pans so I put caramel sauce and more heath bar between the layers and on the top layer.

Now it is time  for some Cool Whip.

Finish the cake off by sprinkling it with more crushed Heath bar pieces.

I store this cake in the refrigerator because of the Cool Whip.  Just take it out right before serving.

Noah wants this every year as his Birthday dessert.
