  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 16 ounces whipped topping thawed
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 jar caramel ice cream topping
  • 3 - 4 Snicker's Candy Bars crushed
  • 1/4 cup peanuts


  • Bake cake per directions on the box.
  • Once baked poke holes over entire top of cake with the small round handle of a wooden spoon.
  • Pour condensed milk evenly over the top of cake and let it soak into the holes. Repeat with the caramel topping.
  • Chill cake for 1 - 2 hours.
  • Spread whipped topping over the cake making it like frosting. Sprinkle chopped Snickers bars over the top of the cake.


  • My 12 year old son poked the holes in this cake – there is no exact rule, just try no to over lap or really enlarge holes
  • Devil’s food cake mix can be substituted for any chocolate cake mix if needed
  • Caramel sauce can be substituted for melted caramels or most any gooey caramel flavored sauce that is pourable
  • The recipe calls for 3-4 chopped full sized Snickers bars, but get more because the pieces seem to disappear during the chopping process or when I leave the room. But if we can’t leave our homes soon I might just start ordering cases of all my favorite candy bars to cope.
  • Fun-sized bars can be chopped up or Snickers bite could just be sprinkled straight on top
  • You can really put any type of candy of top of this cake that you want
  • Be sure to defrost 2 – 8-ounce packages of Cool Whip or one larger container – more whipped topping does make the cake better
  • Chocolate syrup and caramel sauce can also be sprinkled on top if desired
