I had so much fun making these cupcakes! They are messy and delicious! These are also known as 'Better Than Sex' [usually it's in cake form] and 'Better Than Whatever' cupcakes. You get the idea :)

1 Devils Food Cake Mix [or you can make your own if you feel like it!]
1/2 [14 ounce] can Sweetened Condensed Milk
6 ounces Caramel Ice Cream Topping
Toffee [you can do bars, or just get Heath bits like I did :)]
1 container Cool Whip [or other whipped cream of choice!]

Bake cupcakes according to the package directions on cake mix box. When they come out of the oven, poke holes in the top. I did 5 holes with a plastic white spoon on each cupcake.

While the cupcakes are baking, mix the Sweetened Condensed Milk and Caramel Ice Cream Topping together on the stove and warm up a bit.

Once you have the holes in the cupcakes, spoon the caramel mixture into the cupcake holes. This works best if the cupcakes and mixture are both warm.

Leave the cupcakes to cool completely, as Cool Whip tends to melt if they are warm. I chose Cool Whip as my 'frosting' because I thought it would be too much sugar if I actually did a regular frosting. I just used a knife to spread the Cool Whip on the top as desired, spooned a little bit of the caramel mixture over the Cool Whip then added the toffee to the top. I think they turned out great!

T recommends that the next time I make them, I bake the toffee inside the actual cake, which I bet would be delicious!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
