I've been making this cake for several years now and always get compliments on it. I sometimes use a German Chocolate Cake recipe for the cake portion, and use toffee bits and mini chocolate chips in place of the Heath candy bars. I also substitute powdered cocoa (about 2 teaspoons) for the coffee granules in the topping, as I don't care for the taste of coffee. I guess that makes it more of a Chocolate Toffee Cream cake...but people always ask for more!
The day I tried this recipe I swore that this was the most delicious cake I had ever tasted. It was moist, chocolaty, and the topping was not too sweet. I need to try this recipe at least once. It will surely become one of your favorite to serve your family.
Definitely one of my favorites!!
This is about the best cake I've ever had. Worth the time and expense.
I use the Heath Bar chunks that come in a bag like chocolate chips. This is one of my favorite recipes....better than delicious!
