cardiac arrest cake

This cake is to die for... maybe that is where it gets its name :) This is a real crowd pleaser and even better after a few days in the fridge. A cake that gets better in time??? Gives you a little more motivation to use your self control so it can last a few days. Plus it is super easy to make! Try bringing this one to your next summer gathering. It won't disappoint. I make mine with real homemade whipped cream. I think it is so much better and super easy (and economical ) to make. 

1 German chocolate cake mix
1 Smucker's caramel sauce
1 Smucker's hot fudge sauce
1 Eagle Brand or other condensed milk
1 (8oz) Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream)
3 crushed Heath bars or Skor bars

Bake German chocolate cake according to instructions in a 9x13 pan. Cool for 15 minutes. Poke holes all over cake with the end of wooden spoon about 1/2 inch apart. Warm caramel and hot fudge and pour over cake, then pour condensed over all of the cake. Refrigerate several hours or over night. Top cake with Cool Whip or whipped cream and then crushed candy bars.

  1. I have always loved this cake! In fact I don't know anyone who has ever tried this cake that didn't love it also! I also love how you can make it the day before!
