Layers of chocolate and mint candies make these Peppermint Patty Gooey Cake Bars a fun and easy dessert treat.
There is always some sort of candy in my baking cupboard, but I wanted something more than just a chocolate bar. I kept thinking about these candy corn gooey cake bars and how good they were. As I dug through the cupboard, I pulled out a bag of York peppermint patties. What kind of yummy dessert could I come up with???
The wheels in my head started turning and I grabbed a chocolate cake mix and got working.
These bars are so easy to throw together. There is really no limit to the flavor combinations.
When I have made them before, I have put cookies, coconut, and candies in with the cake mix. But this time I wanted a simple gooey chocolate bar that said, “hello, winter”!
Make a soft dough and press half of it in the pan. Layer the unwrapped candies on top, then press the remaining dough over the candies. Finish by drizzling the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips over the top!
Although I should have said, “Hello fat pants”, because I couldn’t stop eating little pieces of these bad boys. These are the perfect bar to satisfy your chocolate cravings!
Chocolatey, gooey, minty…it is a good thing I sent the rest of these peppermint patty gooey cake bars to work with my husband because I would have eaten the entire pan before dinner.
What? You’ve never done that before? I guess that’s just me!
