    It is 3:00 p.m. and I’ve hit a wall. My morning started with grand plans of hitting the gym, grocery shopping, and a home-cooked meal. It is quickly spiraling into fleece pajama pants, frozen pizza, and a movie.

    I know exactly what the problem is. The salad I ate for lunch just isn’t cutting it and I’m hungry… hangry, in fact. I’m just not me when I’m hungry. That is when I break for my mid-afternoon snack.

    You see, writing for Savory Experiments is my second job. My day job as a psychotherapist requires a lot of attention and compassion, which can sometimes be draining.

    My newest loves have been SNICKERS® Xtreme, a newly introduced bar that is pure caramel and peanuts covered in milk chocolate, and Peanut Butter Squares, because who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?

    On a snow day, I found myself wanting to bake and came up with Caramel Apple Cake. I love SNICKERS Green Apple Salad in the summer months, so why not create a showstopping cake to celebrate in winter?

    Ingredients

    • 2 boxes yellow cake mix
    • Ingredients required by your cake mix (Vegetable oil water and eggs)
    • 3 green apples cored and diced into 1-inch cubes
    • 3 16- ounce tubs of white or buttercream frosting
    • 3 cups favorite SNICKERS® chopped
    • 1 cup caramel sauce
    • 1/2 cup milk chocolate candy melts
    • 1/2 cup white chocolate candy melts

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven according to package directions. Coat three 9-inch circular springform pans with cooking spray. If you do not have three pans, bake one at a time.
    • In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, prepare both packages of yellow cake mix according to package directions, but reducing WATER BY 75%. For mine, it called for 2 cups, I used 1/2 cup. Fold in diced apples.
    • Bake according to package directions or until top is golden brown and it passes the toothpick test. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.
    • Trim cakes, if needed, to lie flat. Place the first cake on serving platter. Frost liberally, sprinkle with chopped SNICKERS® and a drizzle of caramel syrup. Continue with the next two layers.
    • Frost entire cake with a thin crumb catcher layer of frosting, refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
    • Complete frosting evenly. Refrigerate again.
    • Melt white and milk chocolate in a bowl or candy bags. Making two passes with both, drizzle on just the edges of the cake, coming about 1 inch into the top. The cold frosting should make the chocolate harden upon contact. Finish with caramel drizzle coming about 2 inches in. Mound remaining SNICKERS® in the center. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Drizzle with extra caramel, if desired.

    Notes

    While I used box mixes and pre-made frosting, feel free to use your own homemade recipe.
    I use baking strips for even baking instead of leveling each cake. These can be purchased at any baking or craft store. You can also cut a thick kitchen towel to the right specifications, soak it in water and then secure it with safety pins.
