• 1 German chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist German Chocolate Cake Mix)
  • 1 jar of Mrs. Richardson Butterscotch Caramel
  • 1 container of Cool Whip
  • 1 bag Heath Toffee Bits (If you like big chunks of Heath, get 8 Heath candy bars and break them into the size pieces that you want)


  1. Make cake mix as directed on box. As soon as it comes out of the oven make holes in the cake.
  2. Pour caramel over the top of the cake so that the caramel gets down in the holes. Cover the whole surface of the baked cake. Let cool. I would put in fridge for about 1 hour. Again, make sure cake is 100 percent cool. This will make a nice caramel glaze on top.
  3. Layer Cool Whip on top, then sprinkle toffee chips over the top of the cake and serve. Store in fridge!

Makes: 20-36 servings • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes
