Rolo Cake Mix Bars

I LOVE Rolos!  They are definitely one of my favorite treats to get my chocolate fix!  When I saw this recipe that combined my love for Rolos and my love for cake flavored things, I knew I would have to give it a try!  We all loved it!


recipe from: Cookies and Cups

1 (18.25 oz) yellow, vanilla, or white cake mix (I used Duncan Hines), dry
5 oz evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
40 Rolo candies, unwrapped and cut in half

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a 9×13 with cooking spray.
Beat cake mix, evaporated milk and butter until combined.  Mixture will be thick and sticky.
Divide batter in half and press half of the batter onto the bottom of the 9×13.
Bake until set, approximately 8-9 minutes.
Remove base from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel-side down on top.
Drop remaining batter on top of rollos in teaspoon sized amounts.
Bake 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to golden.
Cool completely before cutting into them.

    Why must you taunt me like this??? I've made these. Twice. And both times I've eaten the entire pan. The. Entire. Pan. I promised myself I would not make them again. Tis a dangerous thing. Best to stay away. And then I think of the melty, caramely, cakey flavored goodness...
