October’s Food Fun Monday #1

Hi all, Laurie and I are going to try something to see if it works for the Over The Backyard Fence Blog. We are going to do a Food Fun Monday during October and may even expand it to more months if it looks like something everyone might want to do.

I’m kicking it off with a fun cake recipe that is always a conversation topic when I take it out to potlucks. Why? The name for one thing and the horrible decadent chocolate for another.


1 box of any chocolate cake mix you like.
1 can of eagle brand milk
1 jar of caramel ice cream topping
1 tub of cool whip
optional – 1 or 2 heath candy bars

Bake the cake mix in a 9×13 pan and before it cools punch holes in it with a wooden dowel. I use the handle of a wooden spoon.

Fill the holes with the eagle brand milk and use all of it. I usually have to open the top of the can to get it all

Spread the caramel topping over the cake and let cool

Spread the cool whip on top and you can top it with crunched up heath bars or not (if your counting calories :))

Enjoy – note: this has been a favorite with the guys.

Let us know if you’d like to guest blog a recipe. Again just email from our contact page and we’ll set it up.
