"This is our favorite poke cake. Other types don't have as much flavor. Caramel and chocolate go so well together and the whipped topping makes it creamy and rich!"

"Out of 6 desserts at a recent potluck, this was the runaway favorite. Both kids and adults enjoyed and some went back for a second big slice! Easy to make. next time I may try the sweetened condensed milk people mentioned. I used Smucker's Salted Caramel sauce, delicious!"

"I made the cake yesterday. It was good, a very easy desert to make. Great for a BBQ. I think when i make it again I'm going to add a Choc Ganache frosting instead of whip cream."

"I have made this for years except it has been called Better Than Sex Cake. We've always used a German Chocolate Cake mix and then pour a can of sweetened condensed milk and then either the butterscotch caramel, caramel or hot fudge topping over the top and into the holes. Let set either overnight or 6-8 hrs. Put whipped topping and toffee bits on the top and serve. Always a hit!"

"This is the best and easiert chocolate cake to make ever! I used a german chocolate cake mix and extra creamy cool whip. Could not find caramel-butterscotch topping so I chose caramel. Not a big fan of Heath Bars but, once they are crushed and put on cake they are a bit less likely to stick to teeth. Everyone at the party commented on how good it looked. The kids spotted it prior to dinner and surprise, surprise it was all we could do to get them to eat their meal. They wanted cake!!! I will make this over and over!"
