Snickers Cake is one of those cake recipes that tastes (and looks) really fancy, but only takes a few minutes to make. Just adding a few ingredients to a chocolate cake mix creates a unique dessert that is absolutely amazing. There isn’t much better than chocolate and caramel together!

Chocolate chips are sprinkled on top of the cake for the last few minutes of baking, and the cake has enough flavor that it doesn’t really need any frosting. You can definitely add chocolate frosting though if you just really want a little bit more chocolate with your chocolate.

Ingredients in snickers cake

Ingredients in Snickers Cake

1 German Chocolate Cake mix (mix up w/ingredients listed on the box)

1 pkg. caramels (can use a package of caramel baking bits instead)

1 stick butter

1/3 cup milk

12 oz. pkg milk chocolate chips

1 cup chopped peanuts

How to make Snickers Cake

Preheat oven to 350°.

Mix cake mix as directed. Pour a little more than half of it in a greased 9X13 pan and bake for about 15-20 minutes until baked through. Turn the oven down to 250°.

In a small saucepan, melt caramels, butter and milk and pour over baked mix slowly. Sprinkle with 2/3 of the chocolate chips and all of the nuts.

Pour remaining cake batter over the top and bake for about 20 minutes. Turn the heat back up to 350°. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top and then bake for 10 more minutes.

This cake is really delicious warm, but if you want to slice it into nicely shaped pieces, you’ll have to wait for it to cool down! And this cake is really delicious with a scoop of ice cream.

WHAT KIND OF OIL SHOULD I USE FOR THIS CAKE?

You can use any type of baking oil such as canola, olive oil, vegetable oil or coconut. All will work but some will be better than others. For example olive oil often gives baked goods a distinct flavor that the others don’t and can be seen as off putting in most baked desserts. Coconut oil on the other hand helps to give you that perfectly greased cake that falls out of the pan without issues once baked.

CAN I USE SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS?

The recipe calls for milk chocolate chips and although I’m usually a big fan of the semi-sweet ones, the milk chocolate chips really help to give this cake that Snickers flavor! If you only have semi-sweet chocolate chips on hand, the cake will still be delicious, but I really do think that the milk chocolate chips are better in this recipe.
