So what better recipe to kick off this blog than BETTER THAN SEX CAKE!?

THE SOURCE AND BACKGROUND:  This cake is a recipe I got in college from my roommate,  Diane.  She introduced it to me and I never looked back.  I will find any excuse to make it. Rich. Sinful. Decadent.  I get hot flashes and sweats just thinking about it. This is not a cake you can sit down and dig in with a fork.  This is a one piece only cake. It is so sweet that it will constrict your chest if you eat too much.  And by that I mean give you a heart attack most likely.  Yes, it can kill you, it is that good.  So old people, stay away I dont want your death by chocolate on my head.

DISCLAIMER:  This cake, although SO GOOD, is NOT better than sex.  If you make this cake and feel that I lied, then you are doing it wrong (the sex, not the cake)
My roommate told a story of how she made this cake and took it over to a friends hosue for a birthday.  The dad grabbed a piece and made the embarassing statement of,  "Hey honey, this IS better than sex".  I sure hope he was joking.  If he wasnt, then I have a book i can lend him.
This cake is safe for virgins.


1 box devils food Cake Mix
1 jar Mrs Richardsons Butterscotch Caramel Ice Cream Topping
1 Can Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
1 tub Cool Whip
1 pgk Heath or skor chips (or you can buy a candy bar and crush it yourself)

You will also need a wooden spoon or a straw.

Bake cake according to directions. As soon as it comes out of the oven use the straw or the long handle of the wooden spoon to poke holes ALL OVER THE CAKE.  Dont be shy.  It is important that there be holes all throughout.

NOW, over the cake pour the eagle brand condensed milk.  This milk will seep into all those holes.  Dont be shy, use the entire can.  come on, you can do it. This is not a cake for scardey cats.  Trust me and pour that whole bad boy in there.

NOW, heat up the Mrs richardsons Butter Scotch caramel according to directions so it is nice and runny and gooey.  Pour this over the cake as well.  It was seep in and mingle and make friends with the condensed milk. (are you convulsing yet??).  If you have a smaller jar, use the whole thing.  Larger jar, use at least half.

Let sit for awhile until cooled 75%.  the cake should still be "warm" but not too warm to melt the cool whip topping.

So once the cake has cooled appropriately, spread the cool whip on top. Thick or thin, however much you want.  I use the entire tub and have about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch layer of coolwhip.
On top of this sprinkle your skor or heath chips/crushed up candy bar.

Each bite will have cake, eaglebrand, caramel, cool whip and toffee chips.  It is pure heaven exploding in your mouth.
F.O. here you come.
