Better Than S*x Cake

This cake was popular on the cooking board I post on so I tried it last year and I am SO glad I did. Everyone I have made it for since has LOVED it, and it's so easy to make! I made it this time to bring to my cousin's house for New Year's Eve. It's a perfect casual dessert!

I highly suggest that you make this abour 24 hours in advance. That will give the caramel mixture time to soak into the chocolate cake. Yum!

Better Than S*x Cake
from Now That's What's Cooking
Makes about 8 large servings

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips
1 (16 ounce) jar caramel sauce
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tub Cool Whip
1 (8 ounce) bar cream cheese
1/2 bag heath bar bits

Preheat oven as directed on cake box.

Prepare cake mix as directed on box Add half the bag of chocolate chips, pour in cake pan and top with remaining chocolate chips. Bake as directed on the box.

Meanwhile, mix the caramel and the condensed milk together in a bowl. When the cake comes out of the oven, poke holes in the cake with a straw and then pour the caramel mix over the top and let sit until cool.

In medium bowl, beat Cool Whip and cream cheese until combined. Top cooled cake with Cool Whip mixture and the candy pieces.

Keep chilled before serving.

I love this cake - so indulgent! I've used regular caramel sauce before but if you ever get a chance, try it with Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch caramel sauce - to die for! :)

This looks excellent! I've made it once, but never thought to use chocolate chips - great idea!

That sounds much better than the Better than S*x cake my boss brought to a office event once. His was a lot different--and he had way too much fun with the name. Dirty old man--nasty!
