Snickers Cake

This year, I was in search of a chocolate dessert to add to our Thanksgiving table.  We were already having the traditional pies, so I wanted to make something different.  I started my search on my SWEET TREATS Pinterest board and didn't have to look any further.  This recipe was about half way down the page and I knew it would be perfect.  I have to admit that I didn't actually make this dessert.  I sent my mom the recipe to get the ingredients for me to make on Thanksgiving but she made it the day before. I'm glad she did because it was nice not having to make it on Thanksgiving Day after spending all morning in the kitchen.  This dessert was very rich.  All you need is a little tiny piece and your sweet tooth will be satisfied.  We all agreed that if we make it again we will cut down on the amount of chocolate chips and caramel in it.  If you enjoy the chocolate caramel combination, you will love this dessert.  Enjoy!

 Even miss Avery Grace wanted a bite!

1 German Chocolate Cake Mix

Ingredients called for on cake mix (oil, eggs, water)
1 (14 oz) bag of Kraft Caramels (or any other caramels you like)
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter (which is about 3/4 of a cube)
1-2 cups chocolate chips (however many you like)
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix together cake mix as directed on the box. Pour half of the batter into a greased 9x13 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
While it bakes, unwrap all the caramels (don't have your husband help- he will eat half of them. I am totally speaking from experience). Put the caramels, milk, and butter in a sauce pan and melt over low heat, stirring constantly until caramel is melted and smooth. 
Pour the caramel on the cake as soon as it is finished baking. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans on top of the caramel. Spread the remaining half of the prepared cake mix batter on top. Bake for 20 more minutes at 350 degrees.

  1. Oh my gosh!!! That looks so delicious! I'm not a huge fan of Snickers, but it is my husband's favorite chocolate bar. I like how it's not made with peanuts, which I'm not a fan of, but of pecans, which I do like. I may have to make this for Christmas - my husband's whole family LOVES Snickers!
