These bars are slightly underbaked to keep them moist and gooey. They might look like brownies, but they taste like chocolate cake batter!


  • 1 box devil’s food chocolate cake mix
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup Rolo candies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 7x11 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the dry cake mix, melted butter, egg, and milk until well combined.
  3. Stir in the Rolo candies.
  4. Use an off-set spatula to spread the batter into the prepared pan. The batter will be very sticky and somewhat difficult to spread.
  5. Bake for 18 minutes exactly. The bars may look a bit underdone, but they will set as they cool.
  6. Cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
