A Christmas dessert (that is made at my house during Christmas)

This is one of my favorite desserts that my family makes on Christmas (not really for Christmas but it’s made on Christmas).


-1 box of devil’s food cake mix (Betty Crockers to be specific) – mix it with the ingredient on the box (eggs, oil, water) 

-1 can of sweetened condensed milk 

-12 ounces of caramel ice cream topping 

-1 (8oz) container of Cool Whip

– 1 (8oz) bag of Heath Bars (optional, I don’t add it in sometimes) – crush them up

-chocolate ice cream sauce to drizzle over the top

Preheat the oven to 350 (grease the pan with nonstick spray, oil or butter). Get your cake mix ready and prepared.

The cake should take about 30 minutes but I would just keep checking it. (also depends on the pan size on how long it’s going to take) Use a toothpick and stick it in there if you think it’s done and if the toothpick comes out clean it’s done. 

Make your topping mixture while the cake is still cooking. Pour sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce into a pan, or a sauce pan, and put it on low heat for ten minutes (you’re just doing this to make sure it’s warm and a little runny).

Once the cake is out the oven let it cool for a few minutes, maybe about 10 minutes. Poke the cake with the back of a wooden spoon all around in a line. Then pour your mixture over it.   

Let the cake cool and then spread the Cool Whip over the top. You can add the Heath bars on top if you want.

This recipe is adapted from the one found here (sorry for the not so school appropriate name, but it’s what I make):
