Better Than Cake Recipe

This is my favorite cake. I have made it many many times and everyone always has a different name for it. It has been called the Better than Robert Redford Cake, Better than Harrison Ford Cake, Better than Sex Cake, etc. Even though the name is somewhat different, one thing is always the same. It is “Better Than”. So to prevent awkward silences at the church potluck or younger generations asking who Harrison Ford is, I have retitled it the Better Than Cake. This way everyone can pick their own thing it is Better Than. Make it today and see what answers you get at your next gathering.


 Better Than Cake


1 box chocolate cake mix (and items needed to make it)

(or you can use 1 box yellow/white cake mix and 1/2 cup cocoa powder)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar caramel ice cream topping

8 oz Heath English Toffee Milk Chocolate Bits (found in the baking aisle)

1 container Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting-Thawed (found in the freezer aisle)


  • Bake Cake according to direction on the box. (9×13 size).
  • When cake is done remove from oven and let cool for  5-10 minutes.
  • Take a round wooden spoon handle and make holes all over the cake.
  • Make sure to shake sweetened condensed milk very well before opening and heat the caramel topping for about 30 seconds to make sure it is smooth.
  • Pour Sweetened Condensed Milk over the entire cake making sure it goes down the holes. Repeat with the Caramel Topping.
  • Let cake cool completely.
  • Once cake is completely cool, top with Cool Whip Frosting.
  • Sprinkle the bag of Heath English Toffee Milk Chocolate Bits on top.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (14). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, 2 fish and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
