There’s nothing more I love than a quick and simple dessert that has guests fooled at how easy the recipe is to prepare. Grab a yellow cake mix, some chopped Snickers bars or the baking pieces they have available now in the baking section of the grocery store and some sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate. These literally didn’t even last a day on the counter. Everyone loved them. Hope you enjoy!

Check out my latest video. You can peek at the step by step process for these simple bars. Be sure to follow me on YouTube for more cooking videos this year! Hope you enjoy one of my favorite simple desserts!

    That’s really brilliant idea! Yes, I am enjoying your video which is 1.07 minute but given perfect method. I like it. My child want to eat about almost day cake. I am happy to get your recipe because I will make for my child this item. So, thank you so much for sharing it!

    Thanks for the great recipe, Jenny! I’ve made these bars twice in the last month (both times to take to a party) and they were super popular both times and so easy to make. Mine took quite a while to cool and set up so, word to the wise, best if you’re not making them just before you need to take them to a gathering. Also, 1 cup of melted chocolate was way too much for me; the second time I made a half cup and I still had a bit leftover (I think I must be drizzling my chocolate much less generously than Jenny does).
