Tiramisu is Italian for "pick-me-up," and this treat truly lives up to its name. It's worth every bit of effort to see my husband's eyes light up when I put a piece of this delicious torte in front of him. —Donna Gonda, North Canton, Ohio

  1. Line two greased 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, coffee and egg whites; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in chopped candy bars.
  2. Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
  3. For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in chocolate syrup and vanilla. Add the whipping cream. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the coffee. Spread with 3/4 cup frosting. Repeat layers twice. Top with the remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining frosting. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with chopped candy bar. Yield: 12-14 servings.

"If you get a piece of silicone baking sheet that can be cut into shapes, you can make liners for your cake pans to use over and over--just wash them. I still spray and flour, but the liner helps the cake come right out."

"Great recipe. I changed it a little as there is diabetes in the family. I used sugar free whip cream, less sugar as the chocolate sweetens it enough, and fat free cream cheese. It was so moist and delicious."

"This is delicious! My cake layers didn't rise very high so not sure what happened so I didn't cut them into four layers. Frosting is wonderful. This is definitely worth making."

""Best cake I've ever had!' is a comment I hear often when I bake this cake. It is so dreamy! Don't let the four layers scare you off; it's quite fun to make. I've been making this for years from a Pillsbury Best of the Bakeoff cookbook and keep printed recipes on hand because someone else always asks for it."

"For those who have made this for years, are you finding a difference when you make it since the size of a cake mix has been reduced? I have found in some of my recipes that I need to add 6 T of flour to get the same results."

"I am a true rookie baking of anything, but I love to prepare something new on a regular basis ----- Thus it is amazing even I could make this delicious cake! Great directions that allowed me to make it, ( looked better than the picture) as I used the Heath Bar bits in the cake, sprinkled some between layers and then topped it off! Making it the day before is a great suggestion! Next time I will also increase the frosting by 50% in order to be a little more generous."
