– 1 chocolate cake mix (prepared according to package directions)

– 1/4 cup butter
For the nougat:
– 1 can marshmallow fluff

Directions:
Butter cake mix:
For the butter cakes, divide the batter into two bowls. Add 1/2 cup crushed toffee bits to one bowl and 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs to the other bowl. Gently fold to combine and then pour each batter into a 9″ greased cake pan.
Chocolate Cake mix:
Make the chocolate cake mix according to the package directions and divide between two 9″ greased cake pans. Bake all cakes according to package directions.
Once cakes are cool, it’s time to make the ganache. Using a microwave or double-boiler, melt the chocolate, cream, and butter, whisking until smooth. Set aside until firm enough to spread (mixture could appear slightly greasy).
Next up is the nougat. Pretty simple stuff – just mix together marshmallow fluff and peanut butter (not all natural).
Now it’s time to assemble the cake! Start with the toffee layer (aka Heath Bar). Cover the layer with ganache followed by a good drizzle of caramel (it’s okay if it runs down the sides).
Chop up some Heath Bars and throw them on top!
Next up is the Snickers layer which uses a chocolate cake. Top with nougat (it’s easiest to use your hands to spread once you have a semi-flat base down), followed by caramel, peanuts, and ganache.
After Snickers comes Twix using the graham cracker layer. Top this with caramel (it should soak in a bit) followed by chocolate ganache and chopped Twix.
And for the final layer, we make a Rolo cake using chocolate cake topped with caramel, ganache, and chopped Rolos. Get ready for some serious caramel oozing down the sides of the cake!
