Cook Time35 mins
Servings: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix , plus ingredients listed on box to make the cake
  • 1 (12 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (9 to 12 oz) jar caramel sauce or ice cream topping
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 traditional sized Snickers bars , chopped and divided
  • 1/3 cup salted roasted peanuts , chopped
  • Chocolate caramel sauce (or both caramel sauce and chocolate sauce, separate)

Instructions

  • Prepare the cake mix as directed on the package. Bake as directed.
  • As the cake is baking, blend together the sweetened condensed milk and jar of caramel sauce/topping until fully incorporated. Remove the cake from the oven and while it is still warm, poke holes in it with a fork. Pour the milk and caramel mixture over the entire surface of the cake and let seep down into the holes. Set aside and let the cake cool completely.
  • Once the cake is completely cool, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. In a cold mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract on high speed until a whipped cream is formed with soft peaks. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir in 3/4 of the chopped Snickers. Spread the whipped topping over the cake. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts and the other 1/4 of the chopped Snickers over top, then drizzle with chocolate caramel sauce.
  • Cover with foil and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.
