Thanks to J.M. Smucker Company for inspiring me to create a traditional dessert recipe with an adventurous twist!
The weather has gotten colder, and Christmas is right around the corner. Chocolate caramel cake squares seem to hit the holiday, comfort food spot every single time.
It’s difficult for me to stay out of the kitchen during the holidays. It always feels like the perfect time to bake a few delicious treats — but my kitchen also sparks creative, one-of-a-kind ideas that I love to pass on to my kids.
You’ve indulged in a chocolate cake square before, right? Well, how about venture a little deeper and make your own caramel sauce to drizzle on top. Mmmm…that’s some ooey, gooey, creative goodness right there!
My kids always love creating new foods with me in the kitchen, so I invited them to come along and help me whip up some chocolate bars with caramel sauce. They were excited to take part in making a delicious, rich recipe that could satisfy even the most ferocious sweet tooth.
But even more special than our very own chocolate cake squares is the memories we’re making together.
We’re making memories and serving up recipes that will continue to be passed down to other generations. One day these chocolate cake squares will be, “Grandma’s Chocolate Caramel Cake Squares.” It’s a recipe I’ll be proud to claim!
This chocolatey recipe with a gooey caramel sauce is one that you’ll want to make with your family time and time again. But, make sure you always, always, ALWAYS use quality products like Crisco®’s line of oils and shortenings in this adventurous recipe. Why? Because you want your cake bars to turn out perfectly perfect. And, you’ll want to snag your best baking ingredients at Publix — I did!
From our family to yours, here’s a scrumptious recipe that will hit that holiday-gotta-have-them sweet spot deep in your soul! These chocolate caramel cake squares are deliciously ahhh-mazing — but don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself this holiday season, and don’t forget to gather a few little helpers to bake right along with you. And remember — good moms let their kids lick the bowl! Just sayin’!
Oh, and I almost forgot to ask you — what are you making for your holiday guests this year? Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, pies? Hop on over to the great dessert debate and let us know! Then, share with your family and friends and ask what they’re making too!
