Heath Bar Cake

* 1 box of your favorite Devil's Food cake mix
* 1 12 oz container cool whip
* 1 can sweetened condensed milk
* chocolate syrup
* caramel syrup
* 2 crushed Heath bars

1. Bake cake according to directions. Let cool completely.
2. Once cool, Make holes in top of cake with the handle end of a wooden spoon. Fill holes with sweetened condensed milk, followed by the chocolate and caramel syrups (just squeeze them all over the cake).
3. Cover with cool whip. Sprinkle crushed Heath bars on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I didn't use all that much of the caramel or chocolate syrups; it is up to your discretion. This cake becomes so moist you need to serve it with a large spoon instead of a traditional cake server. This does work well as a birthday cake!

Tough week! I made a few new entrees but none scrumptious enough to share with you. It was even my birthday and the Superbowl so I made two new desserts this week as well and if you believe it only one of those made it to keeper status. So all I can offer today is a Heath Bar Cake. Thankfully, the cake was so easy to make, and enjoyed by the kids and adults alike I know that if you make it you will love it, too!

For my birthday I received a great new kitchen item - a pressure cooker! I am trying to figure it out and find some great recipes to share. I have taken out 5 cookbooks form the library and I am sure that in the coming weeks I will have some great results. The dinner we made with it this week tasted good, but it was a chicken recipe and we've made much better chicken recipes in the past. I think the sweet spot for this new kitchen tool will be found with traditionally tougher cuts of meat. Wish me luck as I search out some keepers! And if you have any pressure cooker recipes you want to share - send them my way!

Happy cooking this week!
