Years ago, Better Than Sex Cakes were all the rage. Many different versions are around. This version features a chocolate cake that you bake from a boxed mix. You then poke holes into the cake and then pour caramel topping onto the cake. When you are finished with the caramel, you then top the cake with whipped topping and shave a couple of Hershey candy bars over the top of it all.

This is a sweet cake that is very tasty. You will need to store this cake in the refrigerator should you not finish it when you first serve this cake.

    I have used sweetened condensed milk instead of the caramel sauce, and it’s very yummy. You can use crushed Heath bar crumbles on top of the cake.
