Funfetti Snickers Cake Mix Bars

Hello and Happy Friday! I hope everyone is doing well and I hope everyone has a great weekend. I am super excited that the weather has cooled off for a brief moment so I can show you guys a super simple dessert.  Its only four ingredients and you can mix and match this however you like. It was inspired by Rolo Cake Mix Bars and I decided to make these because I need a quick treat for an amazing dinner I was invited to.

I had all of these ingredients on hand and decided to save money by sticking with these bars. I also wanted something simple too. All you need for this is a white cake mix, I only had a Funfetti mix so I used that, 5 oz of evaporated mix, 1/4 cup of butter and a candy of your choice. The original called for Rolos, but I knew I had the Snickers so I went with those. Since the Snickers are bigger than Rolo's, I chopped them into 3rds and placed them all over the cake mix. You guys this is super simple and quick I hope you guys try these and enjoy!

Here's how you do it:

this is the base, baked, and the Snickers on top. Feel free to use as many as you want.


Adapted From Cookies and Cups

1 box (18.25 oz) Funfetti Cake Mix, or your choice, make sure it is 18.25 oz
5 oz evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
Around 15 Fun Size Snicker, cut into 3rds, or use as many as you like

Preheat oven to 350°

Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. In a bowl or mixer, beat cake mix, evaporated milk and butter until combined. The mixture will be thick and very sticky. Make a ball with the batter and divide it in half. Press  1 half into the bottom of the pan. **

Bake about 7 minutes and remove from oven and place the Snickers candies all over the cake base. Place the remaining batter on top of the Snickers. (See Note)

Bake for 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to golden.

Cool completely before cutting into squares.**


I find that when working with the batter, to have a small bowl filled with water, dip your fingers in the water so they are slightly moistened then press the cake on the bottom of the pan. This also helps when dropping teaspoons of the batter over the Snickers.

The bottom base will darken a little more than the top. Just watch so you don't over bake. Mine turned out fine.

I find that these taste even better the next day.

I hope you guys try these and enjoy!


  1. The best brownies, my family and friends LOVE them!!! This is the only place I have found this recipe.

  2. way too dry!! It needed something to make the batter rise more and be more moist!
