Easy Reese's Cake

I'm so excited to be able to share this recipe!  It comes out so moist and not overly sweet!
The only ingredients you will need are:
~ Chocolate Cake Mix (and ingredients called for on box)
~ 2 Packages of King Size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (Frozen)
~ 1 small can of Sweetened Condensed Milk 
~ 1 container of Cool Whip
1.) Mix the cake mix according to package directions.  Put in a greased and floured 9x13 pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
2.) Let the cake rest for about 5 minutes, then poke holes with the end of a wooden spoon.  I just randomly poke holes until it looks like enough.
3.) After that, pour about 3/4 of the sweetened condensed milk on the cake.  Try to get as much IN or NEAR the holes as possible. Cover with aluminum foil and put in the refrigerator until completely cool.
* NOTE: It will look extremely messy and wet at this point.  Don't be afraid!  It will all drain into the cake eventually. 
4.)  Once the cake is completely cooled, cover with the entire container of Cool Whip. Put it on just like you would frosting.
5.) Take the Reese's out of the freezer and smash, in the package, with a rolling pin or something heavy.  When the candy is in crumbles, sprinkle on top of the Cool Whip.
Sorry, no pics of this step.  I was in a hurry trying to finish the cake and get out the door!
 I like to garnish with a little chocolate syrup and sometimes a little melted peanut butter!  This cake is a real treat, especially if you don't like frosting! 
I've made this with Butterfinger candy bars crumbled on the top too!  Just use your imagination and you could make ANY flavor combination imaginable!
I really hope you try this cake!  It's amazing!  Please make sure you keep it in the refrigerator!
