    • Hi Debra,
      You could use a crushed up Skore Bar. The only difference is that it is coated with chocolate so you would also be adding bits of chocolate. Any Hard toffee bar will do. :)

  2. I loved this cake, but I did have trouble with the caramel drizzle. It turned out thick, almost unspreadable (forget any drizzling), and cooled to a thick hard crust. Eight minutes seemed like a long time to simmer, but to be honest, I cooked it on med-high for the first couple minutes until I re-read the directions. Is this sauce supposed to be thin and easy to drizzle?

    • Hi Terri,
      This caramel drizzle does get cold quickly. Make sure you have your cake ready for the drizzle before making it. The key is to drizzle while it’s hot. Also, make sure you simmer very slowly. Thanks for visiting and your comment. Have a GREAT day! :)

  3. I like to make desserts and freeze individual servings. How long can this caramel drizzle be kept in the refrigerator to reheat when thawing the cake?
