Wonderful recipe, BUT save yourselves a little time. If you go to the baked goods aisle, a lot of stores will have Heath Baking Bits. ( Use Heath, NOT SKOR, SKOR doesn't have the chocolate covering ( and no, I'm not talking the heath Bites either, look for Heath BAKING BITS, there's a huge difference :) you won't have to crush anything, it's already done for ya right out of the bag. Perfect to use on Better than Sex Cake as well, which is just as devine.


This was just awesome! Wasn't *too* chocolately either! I barely fit the whole thing in my trifle bowl, and thought that I should have used only 2/3 of the cake as someone else suggested; however, after sitting in the refrigerator overnight, it sunk a little because of the sheer weight of it all. Perfect! I used a 7 oz. "Symphony" chocolate/toffee bar, but didn't taste as much toffee as I would have liked. Next time, I used an 8 oz. bag of Heath Toffee Bits (found in the baking aisle) - MUCH better, and no chopping involved!! This cake is always a hit. Thanks for the recipe!

This was a huge hit! The only change I made was using a bag of Heath milk chocolate toffee baking bits instead of candy bars. Also, I used a big glass bowl that holds 20 cups, and the cake fit with just enough room to spare. I made it about 8 hours before serving, which probably only made it better.
