Heath Bar Cake

Heath Bar Cake

Pinit

What is your favorite candy bar? I have several favorites, but definitely one of my top three would be a Heath bar. Crunchy toffee covered in chocolate? Yes, please!

Whatever your favorite candy bar is, it will most likely work with this candy bar cake recipe. We’ve most often used it with Heath bars and Butterfingers. Probably a crunchy-type candy bar would work best – one that you could crumble. But I suppose if you wanted to use something like Milky Ways or Snickers, you could chop them up instead of crumbling them and then spread them over the cake.

Also, this delicious cake is only 5 ingredients! Using a boxed cake mix for simplification, you make the cake itself super-moist using a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping. Oh. Yeah. Then just top with the Cool Whip and candy bar of your choice.

Heath Bar Cake

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 box German chocolate or chocolate cake (plus eggs and oil required per cake package directions)
  • 1-14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-14 oz jar caramel topping
  • 8 ounce tub Cool Whip
  • 3 Heath Bars (or other candy bar!) crumbled

Recipe Directions

Bake cake in a 9×13 per package directions. After you take it out of the oven, poke holes all over the cake while it’s still warm. We used a fork and also the end of a wooden spoon to make a few bigger holes. Note: try to poke the holes only about halfway through the cake, not all the way to the bottom, because you want the caramel mixture to soak in the cake and not all go to the bottom.

After you poke the holes in the cake, mix together the sweetened condensed milk and the caramel, and then pour over the cake slowly in order to let the mixture soak into the cake.

Let the cake cool, then top with Cool Whip and crushed candy bars. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
