sorry noone's answered you...I was kinda hoping to see if someone had an actual recipe. Could you put a thin layer of ganache or chocolate buttercream as filling and then sprinkle chopped up snickers bars over that?

Or, I've done this with Reese's PB cups...chop them up and use a 1:3 ratio of cream to snickers and make a ganache (ie 4oz's cream to 12 ozs chopped snickers), then whip after it's been in the fridge overnight (careful to not overwhip or it will curdle). just a thought, if nothing else this might bump your post.

good luck,
Sandi

heavy cream. I think it's gonna be sweet for sure (but yummy), but that's why I would just use a thin layer.

If you can get away with refrigerating this cake, maybe just whipped cream (not overly sweetened and stabilized with some "whip it") and chopped snickers might be less sweet.

I actually use a dulce de leche filling with peanuts to mimick the snickers bar, you can usually get it at the grocery store in the " international" section, they have it canned, I like it a little bit thinner so i microwave it for a little bit with 2tbs of milk and stir, then let it cool down. i know there is a recipe to make it from canned sweet condensed milk but cooking a can has never seemed like a good idea to me. icon_biggrin.gif

yum, sounds like a good idea, you could add some grated chocolate to it too to get that true snickers taste....

I LOVE the Ever-So-Moist Chocolate cake recipe...I think by the Cake mix Doctor...I THINK. It's:

1 box chocolate cake mix with pudding added
1 C sour cream
3/4 c water
1/2 c vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Bake at 350 28-32 mins 2 9'' round pans.


I was thinking that you could use either a caramel, or caramel BC with chopped peanuts sprinkled for the filling.

Cristi-Tutty Posted 21 Apr 2010 , 11:06pm

How you make caramel BC? Thank you for the recipe!!!

jenng1482 Posted 21 Apr 2010 , 11:28pm

Here is a recipe for nougat that i found on the google doc. I have never tried it and know nothing about it. If it turns out like the actually nougat of a snickers bar, I woould layer it with peanuts and caramel inside the choc cake!

Nougat (For a "Snickers" cake) - K2Cakes
2 Cups of Soy Milk
9 oz. Soy Marg. (Earth Ballance)
24 oz. Sugar
2 tblsp. Vanilla Essence (or extract)
12 oz. dried Soy Milk powder
*Put the milk, margarine and sugar into a thick saucepan and heat, without stirring, on a low heat until it bubbles and triples in size.
Keep heat steady for 2 min (sugar thermometer, should be 235 F.) Cool. Add the vanilla essence and the dried soy milk and beat till creamy.
Pour into baking trays roughly the size of 48 mars bars and freeze for an hour.

I've made caramel BC by just adding caramel to BC. You could also use some caramel flavored oil, such as Lorann's to enhance the caramel flavor without more sweetness added. HTH!

moralna Posted 22 Apr 2010 , 2:32pm

How about a brown sugar buttercream, which tastes like caramel and then add chopped snickers. I am actually making a Snickers cake this weekend with a chocolate buttercream filling and am making a chocolate cake with the Snicker filling and will be using that brown sugar buttercream recipe.

dalis4joe Posted 22 Apr 2010 , 2:46pm

I made Dulce De Leche BC by adding a can of the Nestle Dulce De Leche to my regular BC recipe... it was super yummy.... everyone loved it and it crusts really nice also so it's easy to work...

TexasSugar Posted 22 Apr 2010 , 3:52pm

I think JodieF, does this, if I am thinking of the right person. I know she makes her own caramel and will make a fudge layer using condenced milk and chocolate and she mentioned a snickers layer.

Hello

I was searching for the recipe and just found chocolate cakes recipes. Could you please help me when you get home? or could you give me the name of the recipe so I can look for it?


Thank you so much

moralna Posted 26 Apr 2010 , 5:58pm

Sure. If you go to www.marthastewart.com and then go into the recipe search tab on the left of the screen, type in brown sugar buttercream, it will come up. Let me know if you find it.

Below is the recipe for Brown Sugar Buttercream.

(Makes about 4 cups)

4 large egg whites
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into tablespoons

Directions:
- In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pan of simmering water, whisk together egg whites, sugar, and salt. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is warm to the touch.
- Transfer to the clean bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium speed until fluffy and cooled, about 15 minutes.
- Raise speed to high; beat until stiff peaks form. Reduce speed to medium-low; add butter, 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time, until fully incorporated.

Another idea is to use the basic butter cake recipe and melt and cool some chocolate for the cake. For the filling - soften/melt a Snicker Bar and mix it in with some additional melted chocolate (it will be chunky) and use it for the filling ... ganache will work well also. Hope this helps.

This weekend I made some french vanilla mousse mix and added some Mrs. Richardsons caramel topping to it (it was a thicker, nicer caramel than like, the Smuckers kind) and it was a very delightful caramel mousse...I would think it would taste super with some chopped snickers and maybe a thin layer of chocolate ganache sandwiching it.

jennywenny Posted 26 Apr 2010 , 11:02pm

I've been making the confetti cakes chocolate cake, which works really well for most applications. I've also used the chocolate fudge cake from the cake bible. I fill with home-made caramel, chopped peanuts and whipped chocolate ganache and it goes down very well. Ganache isnt as sweet as buttercream so its a good balance.

Cristi-Tutty Posted 19 May 2010 , 10:16pm

hello everyone!! I want to thank you for all your help. The cake came out awesome...thank you, thank you

here is the pic of the cake, hope you like it!!! icon_smile.gif
