Voldemort Cake

Some people have titled this cake "Better than Sex Cake" but that isn't a very good name and often embarrasses people if you actually call it that! My sister-in-law and her kids are big fans of Harry Potter books and movies and they have renamed the cake "Voldemort Cake". I have to admit that I have never read the series so I had to be educated on why they gave it that name. Voldemort is suppose to be an unmentionable word if I remember their reason. I like using that title more than the other so it is going to be known as Voldemort Cake at our house too.

Voldemort Cake

1 (8 oz) package devils food cake mix

1/2 (14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

6 oz caramel ice cream topping

3 or 4 (1.4 oz) bars Heath or Skor candy bars crushed

1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Bake cake according to package directions for a 9 x 13-inch pan; cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Make slits across top of cake (or poke with a fork all over) make sure not to go through to the bottom.

In a saucepan on low heat, combine sweetened condensed milk, topping, stirring until smooth and blended. Slowly pour mixture over warm cake, letting it sink into slits/pokes. Then sprinkle crushed candy over cake.

Let cake cool completely, then top with whipped topping, crushed candy and swirls of caramel. Refrigerate.
