Rolo Cake Mix Bars Recipe

I am the first to admit that I get a little lazy in the kitchen while I’m pregnant.  I also admit that all I want to eat is junk food, which is why this was the perfect recipe for me! Can’t go wrong with a yummy dessert that only takes 4 ingredients and a couple of minutes to whip up!

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix (can also use vanilla or white cake mix)
  • 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 40 Rolo candies (unwrapped and cut in half)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray.
  3. With your mixer, beat cake mix (do not make cake mix according to package directions - just the dry mix), evaporated milk and butter until combined. Mixture will be thick and sticky.
  4. Divide batter in half and press half of the batter onto the bottom of the pan. Bake until set, approximately 8-9 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel-side down on top.
  6. Drop remaining batter all over on top of Rolos in teaspoon sized amounts. Bake 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to turn golden.
  7. Cool completely.
