Food is one of those things that has the tendency to make everything better. Just think about it, anything there is a reason to celebrate food is usually involved. Food even has a way of making even bad news and times feel good at the moment.

BTS Cake

This past week, I decided to recreate a cake that I had a few years ago. I decided attention to make this cake to celebrate the fact that my daughter got straights A’s on her report card and she was even selected to be apart of a national history bee in school. I remembered hearing how easy it was to make. The only bad thing that I can honestly say about the cake is that we had to wait until it cooled down to eat it.

When I have had the cake in the past, I was told the proper name of the cake is called Better Than Sex Cake. But, I just choose to abbreviate the name to BTS because in my opinion it more appropriate.

Also, in this community, if you are not new here, you know that I live for a quick, easy, tasteful recipe. This is another recipe that I was also able to recreate just with the ingredients from my pantry. With the exception of a few refrigerated items such as the eggs and Cool Whip.

What you will need:

  • A Box of Devils Food Cake Mix (plus the ingredients needed on the box: water, eggs and oil). I used A Pillsbury box cake.
  • 2 packs of King Size Heath Bars
  • 14oz of Sweet Condensed Milk
  • 16oz of Cool Whip
  • Caramel Sauce

Steps to Make the Cake

  1. First make the cake according to the box instructions.
  2. Once the cake is finished baking and still warm, you are going to poke holes into the cake.
  3. Open the can of Sweet Condensed Milk and pour all over the top of the cake.
  4. Add a drizzle caramel as well.
  5. Refrigerate the cake for 3-4 hours.
  6. Crush the Heath candy bar into small pieces.
  7. Smooth the Cool Whip on top of the cake.
  8. Sprinkle the candy on top of the cake.
  9. Enjoy!
Pour Sweet Condensed Milk and Carmel over the holes.

The cake is so good chilled, however you cannot go wrong if you enjoy it at room temperature. The pieces of the candy gives the BTS cake an extra crunch of goodness. This recipe is perfect for anyone to make because it is literally impossible to mess up. Take it along with you to your next celebration and I promise you, it will be a hit.
