  1. Bake cake in 9x13 inch pan according to the manufacturers instructions. While the cake is baking, prepare the instant pudding according to instructions on box, set aside to chill.
  2. When the cake comes out of the oven, pour the chocolate syrup over the top of the entire cake. Using a fork, crumble the cake into small pieces. In a large clear bowl, put a layer of cake on the bottom, then cover with a layer of pudding. Then spread a layer of whipped topping, then sprinkle some of the crushed candy bars. Repeat the layers to the top of the bowl, ending with toffee bar pieces on top. Refrigerate until serving time.

I made this dessert last night for my husband's mother's birthday. It was the best chocolate cake dessert I have ever made. It was rich, but it was fantastic. My only suggestion would be to u...

I liked this recipe very much. I find I don't use the whole cake in this recipe (actually about 2/3 since otherwise I don't have a big enough bowl), and it makes for a very moist dessert.

WOW!! This is a winner!! My husband can't stop eating this one!! I also used the bag of Heath topping bits, very easy! I used brownies instead of devils food cake, just happened to have it on ha...
