A close up of a Gooey chocolate bar

Gooey Chocolate Caramel Bars

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


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