 Better than You Know What Cake - Marty's Musings

Y’all may be more familiar with this dessert as Better than Sex Cake.

But I’m a proper Southern gal and I can’t go having that three letter word plastered all over my blog. 

Let’s just say this Better than “You Know What” Cake with Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites is ah-mazing and leave it that. K?

 The traditional recipe is made with heath bits, but I wanted to add a little different texture. Or maybe I just wanted an excuse to use more chocolate!

My new super Walmart is a convenient place to find all the delicious ingredients for this recipe, including Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites. My youngest son loves Three Musketeers so he enjoyed these Bites as well.
