    Chocolate Poke Cake

    My family loves homemade cake, but there’s some days you don’t have time to make a cake from scratch. That’s when I love to use a box cake mix and dress it up a little.

    This chocolate cake (also known as the ‘better than sex cake’)  is one of my husband’s favorite cakes. We call it ‘better than anything’ cake to keep it family friendly. This delicious dessert is made with devil’s food chocolate cake, infused with caramel and sweetened condensed milk (my fave!) then topped with Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream) and Heath toffee bits. Seriously, does it get any better than that?! I don’t think so. ;)

    Ways to modify this chocolate poke cake

    • I used a box cake mix to make it easier, but feel free to make your own chocolate cake from scratch.
    • If you’re a topping lover like me, try adding an extra dollop of whipped cream and drizzle of caramel sauce.
    • Not a fan of the toffee bits in this heath bar cake? No worries! Substitute with Reese’s or Oreo crumbles or candied nuts instead.
    • Not a big chocolate person? Try making a vanilla version of this better than anything cake! Use a box of yellow cake mix instead and top with toasted coconut and pineapple.
