  • 15.25 oz chocolate cake mix any brand will do, I used Duncan Hines
  • 5 oz sweetened condensed milk 1 can is 10 oz, so use about 5 oz
  • 7 oz caramel ice cream topping I used Smuckers caramel syrup
  • 8 oz cool whip whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits I used Skor bits


  • Bake the cake according to the instructions on the box. Note you will need additional ingredients, for example, eggs, water/milk, oil to make the cake.
  • Let the cake cool completely and poke holes about 1 inch apart using the end of a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the condensed milk into the holes of the cake. Pour the caramel topping over the cake and spread evenly.
  • Spread the cool whip over the caramel topping then sprinkle with the chopped pecans and toffee bits.
  • Refrigerate for about an hour or so then serve.
