Sorry to do this to you... but this cake is probably all you're going to think about for the rest of the day.
It's my Snickers Lookalike Cake! White sponge cake, topped with salted caramel and peanut and covered in milk chocolate. It's the perfect union of Snickers and birthday cake!
Make it for a Snickers-obsessed friend or absolutely anyone who's human.
Snickers Cake Ingredients
- 1 classic white cake, baked in a long, thin loaf tin (the tin I used was 30x12cm)
- 2 cups caramel sauce (bottled or make your own (be sure to leave out the salt because the peanuts are salty enough)
- 2 ½ cups salted peanuts
- 350g milk chocolate
Snickers Cake Instructions
1. Trim the top off of your cake so that it’s flat (it’ll dome while baking)
2. Pour the 2 ½ cups of salted peanuts into a bowl and add the cooled caramel sauce
3. Line the baking tin with baking paper and spray with cooking spray then pour the peanut-caramel mixture in, smoothing it and pressing it down with a spoon
4. Put the tin with the peanut-caramel mixture in the freezer for about 20 minutes
5. When it’s set, pull it out of the pan by lifting the ends of the baking paper and place the peanut-caramel bar on top of the cake
6. Place on a tray and put in the freezer until you need it again
7. Break about three-quarters your chocolate up and put it in a microwave-safe bowl
8. Microwave in 20 second increments until it’s almost melted
9. Add the rest of the chocolate (broken into pieces) into the bowl, gently stir then leave for a few minutes to finish melting
10. Leave the chocolate to cool down just a little (about 15 minutes)
11. Place a sheet of baking paper on the work surface, place a cooling rack over it and put the cake with the peanut-caramel slab on top
12. Cover the cake in melted chocolate, pouring over the top and using a spoon to help coat the sides (you may need to scoop up chocolate that’s dripping down onto the paper to have enough)
13. Place in the freezer to set for about 30 minutes then keep in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve!
