- Kraft caramels
- Chocolate chips

How To Make This Snickers Cake Recipe:
The instructions to this recipe are super simple. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Then, in a medium mixing bowl, mix the cake together as directed by the box with the eggs, water, and vegetable oil.
Once it is mixed up, pour half of the batter into the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch baking dish and then bake it for 20 minutes.
While the bottom half of the cake is baking, unwrap the caramels.
PRO TIP: Avoid help on this step or you might have caramels go missing. 😉
Then put caramels, milk, and butter into a small saucepan and melt everything together over low heat. Be sure to stir the mixture constantly until the caramel is melted and smooth.
When the cake is done baking, pull it out and immediately pour the caramel on top.
Then sprinkle the chocolate chips and chopped pecans on top of the melted caramel mixture.
Once you are done with the caramel layer, spread the rest of the chocolate cake batter on top and bake the cake for another 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
When the cake is done, serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
