Holy Cow Cake
Made this cake today for a dinner I was in charge off, due to my lateness of getting the boxed cake mix in the oven I was only able to do the caramel topping and can of sweetened condensed milk. As soon as I pulled the cake out of the oven I poured the caramel mixture over the top and tipped the pan all around to get that caramel all over the cake and then I crushed up some butterfingers and placed them on top of the hot cake and let the chocolate melt onto the cake.
When I served it at the dinner it was a smash. The cake was moist all the way through to the bottom of the pan and the melted chocolate of the butterfingers made a perfect topping.
From here on out that is all I am going to do. I am not even going to add the cool whip and cream cheese.
If you decide to add the cool whip and cream cheese let me know how yours turns out.
One last thought ENJOY:)
