Dessert Of The Day - Heath Bar Cake

I found this recipe years ago on the Weight Watchers message boards. I decided to make it for a picnic this past Labor Day. Let me just say that it was the hit of the picnic. Everyone loved it! It really tastes so unhealthy and I only had to buy two ingredients that I didn't already have around the house (fat free caramel topping and Heath bars). This isn't a recipe I would make every week because it could get costly but it is a nice treat and perfect for a picnic or get together.

If you are looking for a great tasting low fat dessert this one is for you.

Heath Bar Cake:

1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
10-12oz Diet Coke
1 or 2 egg whites
6-oz fat-free caramel ice cream topping
7-oz fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Heath Bits
1 container fat-free cool whip


Mix cake mix, egg white and diet soda. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out smooth in a greased 9x13 pan. During the last few minutes of baking, put caramel and condensed milk in a sauce pan and stir on medium low heat until smooth. Take cake out of oven, and poke holes all over the top. Pour caramel mixture over warm cake, filling in the holes.
Sprinkle Heath Bits over the top, reserving some for the top. Cool completely.

Cover with container of fat-free cool whip and sprinkle with remaining heath bits. Put in fridge until ready to serve.

Yields: 24 servings

Notes: These are notes from the original poster (sorry, I don't remember who it was).
I prefer to use 2 egg whites for a lighter, better consistency. Watch cake during last few minutes of baking as the cakes made with soda are easily over baked. Use 1/2of the Heath bits and reduce points.

Thanks. My husband actually came up with the name. He was joking about it and I thought it was kind of cute so it stuck.
