Heath Bar Cake or Chocolate Caramel Cake

This is one of my favorite chocolate cakes.  I think some people call this a Heath Bar Cake, too.

1 box your favorite chocolate cake mix
1 (14 oz.) can eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1  (12 oz) jar caramel ice cream topping
1 (8 oz) container cool whip

1 cup walnut halves, chopped

Bake cake following directions on box in 9×13 cake pan. Remove from oven and immediately pour eagle brand milk on hot cake and let soak in. (I poke holes in the cake with a fork before pouring milk over it.)

Then, pour caramel topping over cake and let soak in. When cake is completely cool, spread on entire container of cool whip. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts or crush heath bars on top.

This is wonderful alone or with a scoop of ice cream.

  1. Looks very good. Could I use regular cream instead of cool whip..???

  2. Could use peCans instead of walnuts?

    My family loves this cake! I’m always asked to bring to it to any of our get togethers. I always top it off with a bag Heath Bar pieces I buy at the store.

  4. Do you think I’d be able to make this with topping and all about 5 hours in advance and it will hold up. Would love to make it for a group but need it done in advance. Thanks so much, sound delicious.

      Yes, I think you could Angela. You might want to refrigerate it once you make it. It is great cold, too.

  5. OMGoodness! This cake is delectable! Ugh! It’s soooooo gooood!! I made this today and the Strawberry Pie last night. The Strawberry Pie was light, fresh, and amazing too — Its dangerously goooood! Man, at this rate – I better chill out with baking for a little bit, in order to give us all a chance to WORK OFF these calories! LOL! 🙂 Thanks for sharing these recipes..

  6. Looks like that would be easy enough for a single guy like myself.
