Ooey Gooey Goodness

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope everyone had a good holiday season! Mine was great; got to spend time with my brother, sister in law to be and my niece as well as my grandparents who were down visiting. We got to go to Manitoulin Island to visit my bf's family! It was so beautiful there and there was snow! Cause here in southern Ontario we have been lacking snow this winter! The only down side was that I was sick from Dec 22 -Jan 7; started with a cold then the flu then a cold and the flu again!  

Do you guys make new years resolutions? If so what are committing yourself to accomplishing this year.
I have made a few. One is to continue working on my healthy lifestyle that I have been working towards since the fall. For me this includes healthier food choices, exercise and also letting myself indulge in portion controlled ways. So far so good I have lost 15 lbs since October. 

Another one is to post more regularly. I always have some excuse as to why I am soo busy and can't.  But I know I have time because it was easy to find time to fit in my exercise. 

My last one is to take care of myself. Along with the healthy eating and exercise I am going to give myself more me time so that I can continue to help others the way that I have been up to now.

So onto my first recipe of the year! I am not sure what to call this, I have seen many different versions of this cake called so many different things. So I am just going to call it Ooey Gooey Goodness! If you have a chocolate craving this will satisfy it! This is also hard to resist so if you don't have good self control, make sure you have people you can share this with.

Ooey Gooey Goodness

1 box chocolate cake mix (substitute milk for water, butter for oil and add an extra egg) 
1 can light sweetened condensed milk
1 jar chocolate fudge sauce (I prefer PC Dark chocolate fudge sauce)
3/4 tube light Cool Whip (not fat free, that stuff is gross)
2 Skor* bars, crushed/chopped 

Bake the cake according to the box. *I prefer to make the substitutions noted above, as it has more flavour)
Once you take the cake out of the oven, use the end of a wooden spoon and poke holes all over the cake. Then pour the can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the cake. Pour the fudge sauce evenly over the cake and let cool. Once cooled, spread the Cool Whip over the top and sprinkle with Skor pieces.
