NEW CASTLE —

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 packages (5 oz.) Health bars or other milk chocolate toffee bars, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 10-oz. angel food cake

In a small glass bowl, stir together gelatin and 2 tbsps. water. Cook in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Let stand 2 minutes, then stir in 1/4 cup cream; let stand for 5 minutes or until mixture cools to room temperature.

In a medium bowl, beat together remaining 1 3/4-cups cream and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on high until soft peaks form. Beat in gelatin mixture; continue beating until stiff. Fold in candy bar pieces.

Slice angel food cake horizontally into 3 equal layers. Fill and frost cake with whipped cream mixture. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight, until set.

To serve, cut cake into wedges with a sharp, serrated knife. Drizzle a little fudge sauce on top. Serve immediately.
