This is a recipe I got from a magazine and have tweeked it to my families tastes. It is sooo rich you can only eat a small piece.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Ooey gooey chocolate, caramel and toffee! What's not to love?

The Test Kitchen and I also tried using homemade cream cheese icing instead of store-bought vanilla... and the results were just divine. Enjoy!

1 pkg
(18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
1/4 c
miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 jar(s)
(12-1/4 ounces) carmel ice cream topping, warmed
1/2 jar(s)
(11-3/4 ounces) hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
1 can(s)
store bought chocolate or vanilla frosting
1/2 c
heath english toffee bits

Directions Step-By-Step

The best can/store bought frosting I have had ever is the new cool whip brand. I have only seen it so far in vanilla and chocolate but it is not as sweet as the normal canned frosting and it is so creamy and has such a light whipped texture. This would be amazing cake to use that frosting on! Trying this one for sure

I took this today to church for our pot luck, it was a huge hit. I used chocolate frosting. My husband and our Pastor are chocoholics!!!!

I have tried a recipe similar to this, but I use sweetened condensed milk instead of fudge and no chocolate chips and top it with cool whip and toffee bits. We call it "better than sex cake". It's soooo good. Thanks for the different idea for making it. Will definitely try it. :)
