I Heart Candy: Heath Bar Cake

Every now and then I crave and eat an entire Caramello, so when YumSugar proposed her I Heart Candy challenge I figured I'd make a homemade version of a Caramello. However homemade caramel involves an entire hour of constant stirring, so I brainstormed and was immediately reminded of an old childhood favorite: Heath bar cake!

A Heath bar is a thin slab of English toffee covered with smooth milk chocolate. Made with a boxed cake mix, this dessert comes together in no time and can be masterfully assembled by any inexperienced cook. With layers of sweetened condensed milk, creamy caramel sauce, and clouds of pillowy whipped cream topped off with chunks of the classic Heath candy bar, this is one recipe that you have to try. Take a look at just how easy it is,

Heath Bar Cake
From Epicurious Forum

1 box of German chocolate cake mix
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 bottle or jar of caramel
1 tub of Cool Whip
4 Heath or Skor bars, crushed

  1. Bake cake as directed according to box.
  2. Poke holes about the size of a pencil all over the top of the cake.
  3. Drizzle the milk and caramel over the cake, making a thin layer.
  4. Refrigerate until completely cool. Cover with Cool Whip. Sprinkle the Heath or Skor bars.

Serves 8-10.

PartySugar's Notes: Instead of using cool whip (I felt guilty about making a cake from a box) I made whipped cream. Beat 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream with 1 tablespoon vanilla, and 2 heaping tablespoons powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. I also used one extra Heath bar.

Looks yummy. My friend made something like this, but it was even easier! She used Little Debbie Swiss Rolls for the cake and layered it w/ the cool whip and heath was sooo good.

God damn it!! I did the same thing as Rinoakes and Gruaig Rua! I clicked on the link it was because I thought it said "Health Bar Cake" and I've never seen anything "healthy" look that scrumptious! How wrong I was. Not only am I extremely disappointed but I now have a HUGE chocolate cake craving and no means of satisfying it. :DROOL:

Hahaha!! I did the same Rinoakes! I was looking at the picture going "that doesn't look healthy......". I've never heard of heath bars :( But that cake really looks yummy

p.p.s. - don't feel guilty about using cool whip, this is a down home cake and requires it! ha ha. Can you tell I'm slightly into this cake???!

p.s. - sorry if this has been said, but some grocery stores carry heath bar already crunched up... Saves some time and effort.

I've made this many times but never with caramel as well as the condensed milk. It is freakin awesome w/out the caramel, so I can only imagine what happens when you add it! I will have to make this asap!

i really think that purple and party should each make another Heath Bar Cake and let me be the judge :feedme:

No problem partysugar! I doubt using chocolate syrup would ruin this masterpiece, but I love it with the caramel, so I always make it this way! Oh, and did you see in my post that they sell Heath already crushed? That truly makes it the easiest recipe ever!

Purplesugar looks like I missed your post! I made this cake for YumSugar's I Heart Candy challenge because it includes heath bars. Have you tried any variations on yours? People have been suggesting using chocolate syrup, what do you think?

hmm, this sounds strangely familiar. maybe because I already posted it back in January!

Bookmarking! I love caramel. BTW, do you blend the mild and caramel together, or do you layer it?
