Snickers Cake


If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you already know about this cake.  I made this cake for Chicken Legs birthday this past weekend.  He actually came up with this cake and I baked it for him.  

This cake was over the top!  It is similar to some of the other candy bar cakes we've made recently, but on steroids.   This cake was actually better the second day (if you can wait that long).  Be warned - this is super rich.  Make sure you have plenty of people to share it with!





Snickers Cake
(Printable Recipe)


1 box devils food cake mix, plus ingredients to make the cake
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar Smucker's hot caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 snickers candy bars, chopped
1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
caramel sauce
chocolate sauce

Bake cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to direction on the package.

While cake is baking, mix condensed milk and hot caramel topping until well blended. When the cake is done and while it's still hot, poke holes in it with a fork or straw. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cake.

In a chilled bowl, whip together heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip on high speed of an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes. Stir in chopped snickers. Spread over cake. Sprinkle chopped peanuts over cake. Drizzle caramel and chocolate sauce on top. Chill.

  12. I hope it isn't too late to ask a question but are you supposed to heat the caramel ice cream topping before mixing or is hot just part of the name?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Julie - hot is just part of the name of the sauce. If you can't find hot caramel sauce, you can just use regular caramel sauce

  14. I have to say...you are my hero! I just finished making this cake for my husband's birthday, it looks so yummy! It is in the fridge taunting me right now. Next time (yes there WILL be a next time) I need to whip the cream longer to make it fluffier, I was afraid of turning into butter. It still turned out fluffy but not as fluffy as yours.

  15. When the recipe calls for vanilla...is it extract?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Daysi - yes, it is vanilla extract. I hope you enjoy the cake!

  19. I bought a small carton of heavy whipping cream and mixed it with the powdered sugar on high with the standing mixer. It never got fluffy :( it was runny, thin liquid. What did I do wrong? I ended up buying a tub of cool whip which saved me. Everyone loved it, regardless.

  20. I just tried making this cake and it was a bust. The caramel milk topping flooded, softened and destroyed the soft cake. I want to try this again in the morning. Questions: I leave the cake in the pan when I pour the Carmel milk topping over the holes? How many holes? Cause when I poked them it started pulling some of the cake up. Is the cake in the pan or on the cooling rack when I frost it?

  35. I’m a frustrated pâtissier! I want to learn this recipe for my mother. She loves snickers chocolate so I guess she will probably like this snickers cake as well.

  36. Terrific recipe! It not only looks fantastic, it appears to be pretty easy. But I do have a question. You say to use three Snicker's bars. Since they come in so very many sizes (mini, fun size, regular, king size, etc.), which size do you recommend for a 9x13" cake? I'm assuming it's the regular size ones, but I thought I'd check. Thanks so much for the post, along with your many other wonderful recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. CBinLB - I did use the regular size snickers bars. Enjoy!

  39. How long will whipped cream hold up after being made?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sheryl Lynn - it will keep at least 2-3 days. I never have any cake after that.

  41. This looks like an awesome halloween party recipe, especially with some gummy worms thrown on top. :p

    ReplyDelete
  42. Do you whip the whipping cream first then add the powdered sugar & vanilla or do you mix all 3 together at once?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Shelly - I whip all three together at the same time. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have just poured in the condensed milk and Caramel topping. I am making it for the first time. I hope it is not too sweet. Will put the cream topping tomorrow, and will try it later on in the evening. Lets see :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. It was a complete hit!! Thank you so much!!! I am sure it will be made many times.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have a question. It says to add the condensed milk and caramel and let it cool. Then it says to add the chocolate chips. I just want to verify that you add the chocolate chips once the cake is completely cooled, and not beforehand. I'm just uncertain if the chocolate chips are supposed to melt and add a layer of chocolate, or if they are to remain solid and add texture. Can you please advise? Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Brenda - I put the chocolate chips on after the cake cooled. I wanted them to be firm and not melted. Enjoy!

  48. Great. Thanks sooo much!! I can't wait to try this cake...baking it as I type.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Absolutely great recipe!! Made this the other day for a Pinterest party and it received rave reviews. I agree that it is better the next day even. But, still very good the same day.

    I couldn't find Devil's Food Cake at my Walmart (weird!) so used chocolate fudge cake mix instead. I also used Gerry Speir's caramel and sauces instead of Smuckers. Love that this is open to variations! :)
