This cake is so delicious, devilish, decadent, put you in a diabetic coma delicious! You might be wondering why I (a diabetic) would post this picture and this recipe. Well, I never said I was perfect at keeping a healthy life style, plus if you don't indulge every once in a while, you won't be able to keep up the healthy eating, you'll feel like it's not worth it. So I had a small piece of my son's birthday cake. This is only made about once or twice a year. It is so delicious that dreams and the eye roll back in your head feelings exist!
My eldest son has an affection for chocolate. A strong one. Maybe it dates back to when I was pregnant with him and I had extreme cravings for chocolate brownie sundae's from Baskin' Robins, with chocolate peanut butter ice-cream with hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top. That was several times a week, while pregnant with him. He loves peanut butter and chocolate... what can I say, he still does. :)
We make this and we all go in a slight coma... not really, but it definitely gets really quiet when everyone is eating their slice of this heavenly cake.
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 box chocolate pudding mix
1 1/4 c water
1/2 c oil
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 bottle chocolate syrup
1 bottle caramel sauce
1 bag Heath bar pieces
1 can praline almonds
1 large tub of non dairy whipped topping
Make the cake mix with the pudding, eggs, water and oil listed... Do NOT follow ingredient list on back of the box mix. Bake 30-35 min in a 13X9 pan. Once it's baked and hot out of the oven, poke holes on top of the hot cake with the small end of a wooden spoon. placing holes all over the top of the cake. Once you have a "holey" cake, pour the sweetened condensed milk on top of the hot cake. Then set in the refrigerator to cool. Once it's about halfway cooled off, add the chocolate sauce and caramel sauce to the top of the cake, Leaving some of each for the top of the cake later. Place back in the refrigerator to complete cooling. Once completely cooled off, add the whipped topping, sprinkle with the almonds and Heath bar pieces and drizzle with chocolate and caramel sauce. Dig in and enjoy...
This cake is so decadent and rich. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Enjoy!
