Tuesday, December 10: It's OK! It's the most wonderful time of the year and you're allowed to cheat. What's your favorite holiday dessert.So, I'mma cheat just a bit. The dessert that is a must have at all holidays and special occasions is my Grandma's Caramel Cake but I've already posted that recipe. I'm postin' my next favorite dessert my Granny makes and that's her Heath Bar Cake. I've never been a big chocolate lover but y'all don't even know how much I love this cake and want it in my belly daily. I can remember back in High School we had a prom after party at Ride or Die's house and we munched and munched on this cake. In the South food is how we show are love for one another. I know Ride or Die loves this cake and ALWAYS wants my Granny to make her some. I know she'll be pleased. I also have another fran who stalks my blog for the recipes and gets excited when I post another of my Granny's recipe. So here ya go my love. Stay warm in DC. Anyways!
Can we also talk about the nasty unsweet tea in this pic? I just needed something to add to the pic. I saw some tea in the fridge and my Momma swore it was good. I decided to try some after I took all the pics and OH MY GOODNESS I was gaggin'. Normally my Grandma makes this like a sheet cake but I didn't want to do that. Sunday night I'm havin' a dinner party with a few friends. I decided to split the cake in two so I could have one for us and one to take to the dinner party. They're in the freezer now and I pray they don't get eaten by Sunday. If they do I might have to catch a case and act a fool on the family member that does so. I'm sure this post is a bit of a hot mess and y'all just want the recipe. Y'all I'm tryin' to focus but I'm so distracted by the show Best Funeral Ever. It is filmed in Dallas and I can't even begin' to tell you about this show. It's on TLC and you just gotta watch. I should be mad that this show makes us look a hot mess but I'm so entertained I can't be upset.
I'm also finally excited that the weather is startin' to let up and I'll be back to work today. Ironic how I'm excited to get back to work. Note: don't follow the directions or ingredients on the back of the box.
1 Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
1/2 cup cake flower
2 cups sugar
1 & 2/3 cups of water
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 Tsp vanilla flavoring
12 oz cool whip
1/2 jar of Miss Rich butterscotch caramel
Heath Bar bits
Directions:2. Add everything but the cool whip, butterscotch caramel and Heath Bar bits to the cake mix.
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. Once the cake has been mixed bake it for about 30 minutes or until it is done. Check it a few times but not to much cause y'all don't want it to fall. Make sure you grease the pan.3. Allow the cake to cool completely.
4. Spread the butterscotch caramel on the top of the cake. Then add the cool whip. Finally add the Heath Bar bits on top. I used dark chocolate and toffee bits. You can get them in the baking isle already chopped.
5. Cake should be placed in the freezer before serving. You should also keep it in the freezer when not eating it to help preserve the cool whip.
