The name of this cake may sound absolutely outrageous, but that’s because this cake is quite possibly the best thing you will ever taste! The name just had to be extreme because the taste is absolutely extreme. It’s not named the “Better Than Sex Cake” for nothing…
This “Better Than Sex Cake” is not only moist, delectable, and light but it is super easy to create!
All you need is devils food cake mix, 1 can of caramel sauce, 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk, a bag of snickers candy, 1 8oz tub of cool whip, and the ingredients listed on the back of the cake mix. (Mine called for 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, and 1/2 cup of oil). That’s it!
The first step is to mix together all of the ingredients listed on the back of the cake mix. So, we mixed together our cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, and 1/2 cup of canola oil. *For the moistest cakes, make sure not to over mix the ingredients.
This cake literally melts in your mouth!
Next, pour the batter into a greased 13×9 pan and bake it for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Depending on your oven your cake could be done in 25 or 35 minutes. You can always check by poking the center of the cake with a toothpick and if it comes out clean then your cake is done.
Snickers make it even better!
While your cake is baking chop up your Snickers candy into tiny pieces. The easiest way to do this would be to dump the candies in a food processor, but we were a little lazy… So, we chopped them up by hand. We made some pieces very small, while others were a bit larger.
After the cake comes out of the oven poke holes in the cake using the end of the handle of a wooden spoon or a butter knife. As you see below we did 5 horizontal rows with 7 holes in each row, so there was a total of 35 holes. Don’t over think this part, you just want some holes to help the caramel and milk sink into the cake.
Then, pour your can of sweetened condensed milk over your cake. It helps to spread the milk with a knife to make sure it gets in each hole.
Covered with deliciousness!
Next, take your can of caramel sauce and pour 1/2 of the can over the milk-soaked cake. Again making sure plenty of the caramel sinks in the holes you created. This will ensure that your cake is super moist!
After you coat the cake with the sweet milk and caramel sauce, give the cake about 10 minutes to cool and soak in. Then it’s time for the Cool Whip. Using a spatula spread the Cool Whip on top of the cake. Then, sprinkle your Snicker’s pieces all over the top of the cake. To top it off drizzle the about 1/4 of your caramel sauce over top the Snickers.
There you have it! The Better Than Sex Cake – Snickers Edition. Super easy and super delicious. This is one of those cakes that you keep coming back for more… It’s dangerously good.
