I've been making this cake for several years. This is the first time I've heard of adding the fudge topping. I always mix a jar of caramel ice cream topping to the sweetened condensed milk and warm it in the microwave so it's easier to pour into and over all those holes. This cake is even better the next day (if it lasts that long). Since we're such big fans of Heath Bars, I use no less than 6 on this cake. This is one of my all time favorite recipes. It's easy and delicious!

This is a super cake to make! Instead of poking holes, I made horizontal slits across the top of the cake, being careful not to go all the way through. Also, instead of pouring on the condensed milk & caramel sauce separately, I heated them up in a sauce pan over low heat & poured it over the cake so it ran into the slits. Sprinkled the Skor (Heath) chunks over the cake & then topped with low fat Cool Whip. I will definitely make this one again!

My family raved. Super moist! I substituted a jar of Caramel for the fudge. Making it in a bundt pan makes it gorgeous too. When you flip it out all the milk and carmel runs back down the sides. Must try!

I hate to give a low rating, but this cake was way too rich. Even my husband, who can out sweet anyone, coundn't finish his piece. I'll try it again but I will omit the condensed milk and use half fudge half caramel. Thanks for sharing your recipe Teri! **UPDATED 7/23/07** I made this again last night with these changes and it was wonderful. I omitted the condensed milk. I then thinned out a 16oz jar of hot fudge with approximately 1/2 cup of milk. Poured that on top of the cake and frosted with real whipped cream. Perfection!

This cake is very easy to play around with. I've had this with caramel topping instead of fudge and it's delicious. Definitely not for those who are weight concious but a great treat for those who are looking for something sweet. Thanks Teri.

Made this yesterday for a birthday party, and everyone loved it...many even agreeing enthusiastically with its' name! Ha! That's kinda sad, even! But, this was delicious, easy, moist, and oh, so decadent! Definitely a guilty pleasure! I used 1 C. Caramel Sauce topping and 1 C. Hot Fudge Sauce topping...just drizzled them both over the cake before the whipped topping and crushed Heath bars. Awesome!

We make this with caramel sundae topping instead of hot fudge - MMMMMMMM!Hint: After adding sweetened condensed milk let cake cool before adding fudge or caramel.
