1 9x13-inch cake


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix

  • cup water

  • ½ cup oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar hot fudge dessert topping

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar caramel dessert topping

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®), thawed

  • 2 (2.1 ounce) bars chocolate-covered crispy peanut butter candy (such as Butterfinger®), crushed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Mix cake mix, water, oil, and eggs together in a bowl until smooth; pour into the prepared baking pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 28 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately poke holes in the cake using a skewer or straw.

  4. Pour sweetened condensed milk over cake, then hot fudge, and finally caramel. Allow cake to cool for 1 hour.

  5. Spread whipped topping over cooled cake and sprinkle with crushed candy. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
