Snickers Cake

My oldest son's birthday is just a few days before mine is and I end up making so many cupcakes for his special day that I never get my own treat. But not this year! This year I got my own cake and it was delicious. A chocolate cake covered with caramel, whipped topping and crushed Snickers bars.

Before I moved back to my hometown, I was running around in circles with a newborn and a 2 year old counting down every 2 weeks when my parents would come to visit. They would stay the whole weekend doting on their grandchildren, changing diapers and making meals for me. I found this recipe somewhere and since I wasn't busy doing laundry and washing out bottles, I actually had time to try it out. It was a hit and I've been making it ever since.

Snickers Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix
ingredients needed for mix (eggs, oil and water)
16 oz whipped topping
12.25 oz jar caramel sauce
2 Snickers bars, frozen

Bake cake according to directions on box. When done, remove from oven, poke holes in the cakes with the handle of a wooden spoon and pour caramel sauce over both of the cakes. When cakes have cooled, invert onto a cake plate adding a layer of whipped topping in the middle. Continue to cover the cakes with whipped topping and add crushed Snickers bars on top. In my opinion, this cake is so much better the second day when the caramel has really had time to saturate the chocolate cake.

  1. If I make and eat this now, will I have time to work it off before the wedding? Maybe if I just had one slice, but I don't really see that happening.
