  • 15.25 oz box Devil Food cake mix and ingredients called for in box directions
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 c chopped walnuts or your favorite nut
  • 2 1/4 c heavy whipping cream
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 full size snickers bars


  • Mix cake batter according to directions
  • in a pan on med heat combine brown sugar, butter and 1/4 c of whipping cream
  • stir constantly until combined
  • remove from heat as soon as combined and melted (caramel will continue to cook in oven)
  • spray 9 inch round cake pans with cooking spray
  • split caramel mixture into pans evenly
  • sprinkle chopped nuts over caramel, 1/2 cup in each
  • gently add cake mix to pans equally (I use a spoon to add dollops around to avoid spreading caramel to sides)
  • bake per box directions
  • allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes
  • run knife around the edge to loosen cake
  • cut off any bump that may have formed while baking for a level surface
  • place a plate on top of pan and flip allow pan to sit upside down on plate to cool
  • while cake is cooling beat remaining heavy whipping cream until peaks form
  • add powdered sugar then continue to whip until stiff peaks form
  • add half whipping cream on caramel side(top) of bottom layer and spread
  • add top cake layer and then add remaining whipped cream to top and spread
  • crush Snickers bars (I freeze to make this easier)
  • sprinkle on top of cake
  • keep in fridge until ready to serve.
