Yummy Chocolate/Caramel Flavor Bars

Another bar recipe??

Yes, another bar recipe and one that tastes really delicious, especially if you like chocolate and caramel flavors! Who needs another bar recipe?? Not me, my husband would say. But really who doesn't? Isn't there always a time when you want to present a new and different snack to family and friends? I do, and that is why I am always on the lookout for something unusual. When I saw this recipe, it caught my attention. When our sons and grandsons were in high school and heavily into sports, the parents usually brought food for in between or after events. This bar would no doubt be one of the first the boys (and parents) would grab for. It's not an exceptionally attractive bar, but who cares when it tastes this good.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 35 min
Ready in: 1 hour 35 min
Yields: 24 2"x2" squares, or bars


  • 1 box Cake mix (yellow, vanilla or white), Could probably use chocolate, too
  • 5 oz. evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 40 pieces Rolo candies, unwrapped and cut in half
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. With your mixer, beat cake mix, evaporated milk and butter until combined. Mixture will be thick and sticky. (I just mixed this with my big mixing spoon.)
  2. Divide batter in half and press one-half into the bottom of the pan. Bake until just set, approximately 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel side down, on top of mixture. Drop remaining batter on top of Rolos in teaspoon sized amounts.
  3. Bake for 20-24 minutes longer until the top begins to golden. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

This recipe takes more time than other bars as you have to unwrap the candies and cut them in half. Also, you have to bake the batter twice, half at a time. The first time I made these bars, I baked them about two minutes too long at the second baking. The edges of the bars were just a little hard to cut, but did not taste dry at all.

As I stated under the picture, and in my earlier text, this is not the best looking bar in the pan, but once you cut them, they look really inviting. You can see the chocolate and yummy centers.

This is a Taste of Home recipe.
