Rolo Cake Mix Bars

I am a huge fan of Rolos.  They are the perfect combination of chocolate and caramel.  So when my sister showed me this recipe I knew it was a must make!! Thanks to Cookies and Cups for a delicious recipe the family devoured it!!
Rolo Cake Mix Bars
adapted from Cookies & Cups
1 box (18.25 oz) yellow, vanilla or white cake mix, dry
2/3 milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
40 Rolo Candies, unwrapped and cut in half
Preheat oven to 350°
Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. With your mixer, beat cake mix, milk and butter until combined. Mixture will be thick and sticky.  Divide batter in half and press 1 half into the bottom of the pan. Bake until just set, approximately 8-9 minutes.
Remove base from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel-side down on top.
Drop remaining batter on top of Rolos in teaspoon sized amounts.
Bake for 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to golden.
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
Oh YUM!!


  1. I haven't had Rolos in years, but clearly I need to pick some up. What a fun recipe and great photos.. anything with chocolate is good for me.

  2. I had to print this out. What a great treat recipe for a group of kids! Hope you have a great weekend, Tiffanee. I'm hoping that my own computer will be up and running soon. It's been almost a week now. Grrr.

  3. Oh my gosh.... I knew the minute I came over here... I would love what you made. MMMmmmmm those look like they tasted wonderful.

    I will stop by either tonight or tomorrow and enter your giveaway. I have one starting Monday. Hope you can stop by and enter.

  4. I love Rolos too! And this sounds amazing!!!

  5. Love that this recipe uses a cake mix! Enjoy your Sunday!

  6. That sounds really rich and decadent :), have a great week! Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  7. Oh yum, Tiffanee, I'll bet these are gooooood! They look easy, too. Have you ever made Rolo cookies? I have a great recipe for those, if you want it. It's basically a chocolate cookie dough that you roll around a Rolo candy and then roll in sugar before baking. Because how can you go wrong, baking with Rolos? :)

  8. I made these the other day... they were AMAZING! They were gone super quick! Note to self... next time hide 1/2 the batch before the kids get home from school :)

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
