Ah, this is another one of Mom's creations, I don't know where it came from but it's here to stay. I instantly became a family favorite. It was my birthday cake for years...now I know why everyone wanted to come to my parties! It's also a favorite at potlucks! Go figure! This can be made 'kid friendly' or 'not kid friendly' either way it's super good and will become a family favorite for you!
1 Devil's Food cake mix + ingredients to make cake
1 large chocolate pudding mix + milk (instant, can use cook & serve but cool before you assemble)
1 large tub Cool Whip
4-5 Heath bars (broken up) or Heath bits (if you can find them, they are seasonal, I stock up)
Make the cake according to the directions in a 9x13 pan, cool competely. While cooling make pudding and crunch up Heath Bars (this is good therapy, I like to use a hammer!) Cool pudding, if using cook & serve.
In a large punch bowl take 1/4 of the cake and crumble it up, for the 'kid friendly' version take 1/2 a shot of Kahlua and pour over layer, for the 'non kid friendly' pour at will...but don't soak the cake.
Make a layer of pudding, and a layer of Cool Whip, sprinkle with Heath bits. Repeat 3 more times, for 4 layers total. On the top layer make swoopies in the Cool Whip for presentation!
*For the total kid friendly version-don't use any Kahlua...don't know what it would be called, but it's still good!
Makes: 1 Cake (feeds many, there will be no left overs!)
