This cake is so simple but so delicious. If you have a party or potluck to attend, but not a lot of time, this is the dessert for you. When we make this cake, we use the ingredients listed below, but the recipe is really quite versatile. Wouldn’t it be delicious with chocolate sauce and mint chocolate pieces instead?

1 -8 ounce container of Cool Whip

4 ounces (1/2 a bag) of milk chocolate Heath bar toffee bits

Bake cake as directed on box. Allow to cool slightly then use the bottom of a wooden spoon to poke holes halfway through cake, all over. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping on top then let cake cool completely. Spread Cool Whip over cooled cake then top with heath pieces and mini chocolate chips, if desired.
