Some years ago, I worked in a medical office where we made cakes for each other on birthdays. The last birthday girl made the cake for the next, and so forth. It was fun! If you work in an office, I recommend doing this because you get to try SO many different kinds of cake!
One of the ladies in the office made this cake for our birthday girl — it was like heaven in my mouth!! I HAD to have the recipe!
I made it at home the weekend that I got the recipe, and my son loved it so much that he asks for it for his birthday every year now — and his friends don’t forget about it either! If you like chocolate, get ready to make your mouth melt!
- Devil’s Food Cake
- 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 can Evaporated Milk
- 1 tub Cool Whip
- 1 bag chopped Heath Bars (in the baking section)
- Chocolate Syrup
- Caramel Syrup
- A straw (kind of a big one, like a milkshake straw)
Don’t forget to thaw out your Cool Whip!!
- Bake the cake just like the box says (I use milk instead of water, though).
- While the cake is baking, mix the whole can of Sweetened Condensed Milk and almost half of the can of Evaporated Milk together (I use an egg beater because they’re kind of hard to mix).
- When the cake is ready, take it out of the oven and poke holes all over it with that milkshake straw! 😈
- While the cake is still hot, pour the milk mixture in the holes, around the edges, and all over the place.
- Let it cool and put it in the fridge until it’s cold.
- Spread the whole tub of Cool Whip all over the cake.
- Drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrups.
- Top with Heath bar bits.
P.S. — I’ve seen people use the end of a wooden spoon, instead of a straw. To me, it just doesn’t work as well because it packs the cake down to the bottom of the pan — the purpose is to remove the cake from the hole so the milk mixture can seep through to the bottom, which the straw does.
If you made this recipe, please share your thoughts or twists!
