As soon as I saw this recipe I knew they would be good. Yellow cake mix and a milk chocolate covered caramel candy baked together, yeah it just sounds good! With this simple recipe there are so many other dangerous varieties like a chocolate cake mix and peanut butter cups, funfetti cake mix and marshmallows, yellow cake mix and heath bar etc. I could just go on but instead I’ll just share you this recipe. I found the recipe over at Cookies and Cups. I knew it would be good coming from her blog. She makes everything look delicious.They were well liked by my friends over the weekend and I think they will start to make a regular appearance. Just make sure you have a lot of time to unwrap each piece of Rolo candy. Yeah that wasn’t fun at all!
Rolo Cake Mix Bars
Adapted from Cookies and Cups
1 box (18.25oz) yellow cake mix (Definitely use Duncan Hines)
1 (5oz) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
40 Rolo candies, unwrapped and cut in half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13in pan with cookie spray. With a mixer, beat cake mix, evaporated milk and butter until combined. Mixture will be thick and sticky.
Divide batter in half and press 1 half onto the bottom of the pan. Bake until just set, approximately 8-9 minutes.
Remove base from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel-side down on top. Drop remaining batter on top of Rolos in teaspoon sized amounts. Bake for 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to golden.
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
