I realize I’ve been quite the bad blogger lately.  We’ve really been enjoying summer with BBQs and visits from friends.  The girls have been staying up later and we’ve be outside a LOT!  It’s fabulous, really.  Anyway, I have lots of posts brewing in my mind and they’ll find their way to my computer soon enough.  But for today, I bring you my Momma’s Munchies recipe.

This week’s topic is favorite 4th of July recipes.  Like Lindsey, I’m a huge dessert fan.  Cookies, brownies, trifles, YUM!  And even though this is not a red, white, and blue concoction, it’s delicious nonetheless and one of my favorites.  The name of it should tell you just how good it is!


1 box chocolate cake mix

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar caramel topping

1 carton whipping cream

1 bag crushed Heath bar pieces


vanilla extract


Prepare the chocolate cake according to the box directions using a 9×13 metal pan.  Allow the cake to cool but do not take it out of the pan.  Take a wooden spoon and using the handle poke holes throughout the cake.  Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake.  Pour the caramel over the cake.  Whip the whipping cream adding a few teaspoons of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla.  Lay the whipped cream over the top of the cake and cover with the crushed Heath bar pieces.

As the name suggests, this cake is UNreal.  Expect lots of oohs, ummms, and nomnoms when eating it.

If you try it, I’d love to know what you think.  Enjoy!
