Week 46: Candy Snack Cake

I made this delicious chocolate cake a few weeks ago.  I was wanting to bake a cake for my guys as they were watching college football and found this recipe on Pinterest.  It is very similar to a Texas Sheetcake; except the icing included three melted Snicker bars.  I will definitely bake this cake again!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Chocolate Frosting, recipe follows


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 9-inch baking pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until combined. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Spread chocolate frosting over hot cake. Let cool completely. Cut into squares and serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Chocolate Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 (2.07-ounce) Snickers bars cut into 1/2-inch pieces 

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add cocoa, buttermilk and 1 cup confectioners' sugar. Stir in candy bars and allow to melt. Stir in remaining confectioners' sugar and immediately spread over hot cake.
Yield: 1 cup

Will add two pictures in a little while.
Happy Baking!
