Better Than Sex Trifle
I found this recipe on a food blog which I did not write down to give that person credit - sorry! I made this dessert for Mother's Day and it was fabulous and easy! I did not measure out the fudge, carmel, or sweetened condensed milk. I was pretty conservative with the sauces and it needed a little more, so next time I will either measure it out, or put more than I think I should.
1 German chocolate or other chocolate cake
3/4 cup fudge topping
3/4 cup carmel or butterscotch topping
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 bag of toffee pieces
1 tub of whipped topping
Bake cake as directed in a 13X9 pan. After the cake has cooled, cut into small pieces and divide into 3 parts. Layer the bottom with 1/3 of the cake pieces. Drizzle 1/4 C of the chocolate fudge, 1/4 C of the carmel, and 1/4 C of the sweetened condensed milk. Top with desired amount of toffee pieces and put a layer of cool whip. Repeat layers 2 more times. Top with cool whip and toffee pieces.
Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
To make this in a regular 9x13 pan:
Bake cake as directed on box. After the cake has cooled, poke holes in the cake about an inch apart with the back of a wooden spoon. Pour (one at a time) fudge, carmel, and condensed milk over the top of the cake and let each flavor soak in before adding the next. Put desired amount of toffee chips on the top. Frost the cake with the whipped topping and remaining toffee pieces to decorate the top.
