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 Snickers Cake is super easy to make. Start with making a chocolate sheet cake. As soon as it comes out of the oven, poke holes all over the cake with a fork or spoon handle. Mix together caramel ice cream topping and sweetened condensed milk. Pour that mixture over the warm cake and cool completely. Once the cake has cooled, top the cake with chopped Snickers candy bars, whipped cream, chopped peanuts, chocolate and caramel sauce.

I made homemade whipped cream for this cake. Feel free to swap the whipped cream for a tub of Cool Whip. It will still taste great!

This cake was over the top delicious! 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!

  1. Gonna make this for my birthday next week and hopefully everyone will love it cause this looks so delicious!!

  2. I used CoolWhip because I was traveling with it and it was stabilized…Easy recipe. My girlfriend is a Snickers freak and I made it for her Birthday tomorrow.
    Would love to add my photo.

  3. I would love to try this recipe because I love snickers!! I’m gonna make it for my husbands birthday this year. He’s gonna LOVE it.

  4. 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! 🙂

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

  6. 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!!

  7. 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 🙂

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

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

  10. 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 9×13" 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!

  11. 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.

  12. planning on making this today for church. Will the whipping cream hold up for tomorrow if prepared today and 2ndly since it is for a church function does it need to be kept in refridg or can it be placed on dessert table at the church function

  13. O M G!! This cake was Amazing!!! I am on my second cake because it went so fast! I have become addicted to making your recipes..I am doing the Butterfinger Cake as we speak!!!! Ty for posting these amazing recipes!!!

  14. Sarah – thank you SO much! It is my original recipe and photo. I really appreciate you alerting me to this violation!

  15. I didn't read the pour the condensed milk part while cake is hot part. my cake is cooled already.I wonder if i can poke holes now and if it.will still soak it up?

  16. Just made this. I've never had a recipe turn out just like a picture until now. My family LOVED it too! Thanks!!!

  17. Just made this for work birthday party and it was a huge hit! This webpage is now being distributed around the office!

  18. 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?

  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 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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?

  23. Made this for July 4th party and it was a hit! im becoming the "cake lady" in the family. ill have to try all your cake recipes now so i dont have repeats unless requested!

  24. I was wondering about Sunday Dinner dessert–well, I'll wonder no longer. This will be an amazing surprise to those lovlies who gather around my table!

  25. Made this for my son's girlfriend for her birthday this weekend. It was a HUGE hit. Will be trying this out with other candy bar/cake mix combos. The icing made with heavy cream is really the perfect topping. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
