A rich chocolate cake soaked in caramel, frosted and drizzled with more caramel and chocolate then topped off with crushed Snickers bars.
Who loves candy bars? I do! I do! I even love repurposing and baking with them even more. Oh the creative things that you can come up with from just a simple little candy bar. Yum. I had a few mini Snickers bars leftover from when I used the for building my amazing Snack Stadium and I wanted to find something creative to do with them. Let me welcome the Snickers Poke Cake.
Have you ever heard of or tried a poke cake recipe? They are absolutely amazing. I have one you can find here that is coconut in variety.Don’t mind the pictures, I’m working on updating old posts to look a little more visually appealing. That cake was amazing just as this one. Two totally different flavors though. This recipe is a chocolate cake, soaked in caramel sauce, frosted and drizzled with more caramel sauce and chocolate syrup and sprinkled all pretty with delicious Snickers bars!!
Pretty much I love to call this heaven in a pan. My 2-year-old would constantly go up and try to scream cake at me letting me know that she wanted some. Even my chocolate hating child (yes I have one, and no I don’t know how they exist) told me that this cake was good. So that is telling you something right there! It’s easy as heck and whips up in the blink of an eye, which is good because it disappears just as fast.
