Snickers cake is one of those that everyone is going to want the recipe for if it shows up at a potluck. Be prepared! It goes fast, and it is amazing!
Now that baseball season has started, we’re doing a lot of eating on the run. A LOT. If I forget to pack snacks? Oh.my.gosh. Look out. You think a pack of boys is unwieldy? You should check them out when they are tired. And hungry. NOT cool! Or anything resembling fun.
Which makes this perfect because who doesn’t love snickers. It has always been one of my favorite candy bars, so getting it in cake form is like my perfect cake.
I really want to make a beautiful layer cake version of this, and a cupcake version of this – so stay tuned for those in the future!
When I DO have a little time on my hands and want to make the family a treat, this Snickers cake is the perfect dessert to whip up.
It is fast. Super easy. And EVERYONE likes it.
For my son with peanut allergies I cut out a row of cake prior to topping with the candy bars and peanuts and set it aside so he could have a great treat too.
Major credit goes to my amazing sister-in-law Jen. I had a piece of this cake at her house on Sunday, and immediately was all – “Ahhh…perfect timing! This is awesome. Can I pleeeeaasssse have the recipe?”
