Simply said, this dessert is delicious! Chocolate cake, caramel, toffee chips, and whipped cream all layered together making an awesome treat.

Candy Bar Trifle
by Chelsey W.

chocolate cake mix (German or any kind you like)
  -ingredients listed on cake mix
jar of caramel topping (get the good stuff)
can of sweetened condensed milk
large container of whipped topping
bag of chocolate covered toffee chips (like "Heath" found by choc chips)
or about 6 Heath or Skor chocolate bars, crushed

Bake the chocolate cake according to package directions and cool. Cut the cake up into cubes. If your caramel topping is thick (it usually is if it's a good quality) stir in some sweetened condensed milk to thin it out a little. You don't want it too thin but you want it to soak into the cake pieces. If the caramel topping is already runny don't use the sweetened condensed milk. Layer your ingredients into a trifle dish or large glass serving bowl. Start with 1/2 of the cake cubes on the bottom. When making a trifle put the cake and other ingredients around the edge so you can see them through the glass. Then drizzle 1/2 of the caramel on the cake. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the toffee chips. Then layer 1/2 the whipped topping. Repeat these layers again ending with the rest of the toffee chips sprinkled on top. Refrigerate a few hours before serving.
