Ingredients:  
1 package chocolate cake mix (devil's food or German)
1/2 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
6 ounces caramel ice cream topping or hot fudge topping
3 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate (any brand/kind), chopped
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions:
Directions:
Bake chocolate cake (using prepackaged mix is fine). You will be serving cake in the pan you bake it in, so choose a presentable one.

If using caramel: Allow to cool in pan. Use a butter knife to poke slits in the cake, don't cut through all the way to the bottom. In a saucepan over low heat, combine sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping, stirring until smooth and blended. Slowly pour the warm topping mixture over the top of the warm cake, letting it sink into the slits.

If using hot fudge: While cake is still very warm poke holes in top of cake with the end of a wooden spoon, poor sweetened condensed milk over top. Let cake cool. Pour hot fudge topping over top of cake and let set.

Let cake cool completely, then top with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with your favorite chopped chocolate bars and swirl the caramel topping all over. Refrigerate and serve right from the pan!
