Skor Bar Cake a.k.a. Better Than Anything Cake

I'm one lucky girl.  

I have a mother-in-law who loves and supports me in all of my cooking, baking, catering, and selling ventures.


She recently had a birthday and can you guess what I like to do for birthdays?

That's right.  I bake.


She and my father-in-law are empty nesters and he still works full-time on their potato farm.

I worried she might not get a birthday cake, so I took care of that for her.


This cake is very special to me.  First of all, I'd never had this cake until I'd married into the family.  My wonderful mother-in-law so kindly introduced me to it.

I'm forever grateful!  It's so absolutely delicious and simple to make!!


Here's what you'll need:

Your favorite chocolate cake (I made mine from scratch)
Caramel ice cream topping (I like Mrs. Richardson's the best)
Cool Whip
1 Skor Bar or 1 Heath Bar (any chocolate covered toffee bar really), chopped


Since I was making this for my mother-in-law, I wanted to make her cake a mini one, hence the smaller size. But you can make this any way you want.  I usually see this just as a single layer in a 9x13-inch pan.

If you're making a larger size, you'll need more than one Skor Bar.

Poke holes into the top of your chocolate cake to help the caramel soak into the cake better.


Cover with caramel topping.


Add some chopped Skor Bar.


Place another layer of chocolate cake on next.  Poke with holes (I used a wooden kabob skewer) and top again with caramel topping.


Let it drip down the sides a little.  Yum.


Dollop some Cool Whip on and drizzle with more caramel topping.


Then finish it off with more chopped Skor Bar.


Doesn't that just look amazing?


This flavor combination is fantastic, thus earning it's title of "Better Than Anything Cake."


It is that good.

Looks delicious! I have a cake recipe that you bake in a can. I think it would be the perfect size to combine with this for individual birthday cakes for my co-workers. Thanks for the recipe!

I make this cake too! It's my in-laws favorite as well. The only thing I do different is put a can of sweetened condenced milk in the "holes" before the carmel and let the the milk and carmel really set into the cake before serving. MMmm.. So yummy!
