better-than-pretty-much-anything cake

this cake is a definite favorite of the husband and i. it's really simple and just a whole lot of goodness.ingredients for an 8x8 pan:
1 brownie mix (if you have the means, buy it from trader joe's. mmmm)
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
squeezable caramel
1 8 oz container cool whip
3 skor bars, crushed
directions:
bake brownies according to package directions. when brownies are finished and somewhat cooled, poke holes with a knife throughout the brownies.
pour 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk all over the brownies. then squeeze about same amount of caramel over the brownies. i like to let the brownies sit for at least a few hours so it can soak up the liquid a little, but if you're in a rush, no problem.
then spread cool whip over the top of the brownies. i usually put the cool whip in the fridge in advance so it's easy to spread!! finally, add crushed skor bars to top of the cake.
serve. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
