Better than Sex Cake

I was on twitter the other day musing about how I should do more recipes with the word sex or orgasms in the title (since my posted fudge recipe is so popular), and thought "That IS a good idea!", so off I went in search of some pleasure inducing recipes. I came across this one and knew I had to try it out, cause I like cake, but the title makes some lofty claims.

Chocolate, caramel, Skor bar... hello? Have you slipped into a sugar-coma yet? It was TO DIE FOR. This cake comes together pretty quickly which is great cause we invited my in-laws over for an impromptu dinner and I was able to whip this bad boy up in an hour.

If you liked the fudge, this cake won't disappoint. Give it a try and let me know if you think it's better than sex?

Better than Sex Cake adapted from

1 boxed devil's food cake mix (you can make a from scratch cake if you like, I was impatient!)
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg. Kraft Caramels
4 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered toffee, crushed
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


1. Bake cake according to package directions BUT use only 1/2 the oil the recipe calls for.
2. Remove cake from the oven and poke several holes (like 15-20) about 3/4 of the depth of the cake all over with the handle of a wooden spoon.

3. In a bowl combine the milk and caramels and microwave until the caramels are melted. Mix well.
4. Pour the warm topping mixture over the top of the warm cake, letting it sink into the holes.
5. Sprinkle the crushed chocolate bars over the caramel while it's still warm reserving a bit for the top of the cake.

6. Let the cake cool completely, then top with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with some more chocolate toffee bar chunks and swirls of caramel topping and melted chocolate.
7. Refrigerate until set (about 20 minutes) and serve.


While I was taking pictures, my 3 year old came wandering by and said "Ooooo, look mommy, chocolate!" and before I knew it she had scampered up on a chair and was reaching for a hunk of Skor bar as I was snapping a picture. Sneaky bugger!


  1. Thank you for giving me the inspiration to get off my ars and get to a grocery store.

  2. Oh my - this looks fabulous! Wish I had some right now to give me an afternoon sugar rush!!

  3. This looks fab-u-lous!! I believe this will be my offering at my in-laws Halloween Festivities this year! Thanks for the GREAT idea!

  4. I found your blog off the Foodie BlogRoll and I love it! Everything looks so good, thanks for sharing.

  5. I'm so craving chocolate, and cream cheese, and coolwhip. I need to stop reading before I gain ten pounds just by looking at your photos.

  6. I served this at a family gathering tonight and everybody raved about it.  My army, fitness buff son said "Don't ever put this in front of me again"--in other words, he found it irresisible.  Personally, it was too sweet for me so later I tried another piece topped with cherry pie filling and the tartness cut the sweetness ; )  Next time, I'll serve with fresh strawberries as you've shown to help cut the sweetness

  7.  It *is* pretty sweet, a little vanilla bean ice cream would probably work too ;)
