Ok, so I really enjoy baking and finding new things to try. I rarely make the same thing more than twice; except for the Oreo Balls… but those are fabulous and kind of my thing so those are the exception.
Anyway, my husband is always complaining that I don’t bake him anything… It’s true, I don’t bake him a whole lot because:
1. He isn’t a huge sweets person, therefore it could be sitting around the house for multiple weeks before he gets to it, and I just end up eating it.
2. He wants plain… Plain brownies, plain cookies, plain cake!!!! Agh, I don’t really do plain. If he wants plain he can grab a box of brownies at the store and add water… (I’m harsh I know).
3. Last time I made something he wanted me to make he said, “This isn’t the way my mom makes it”.
So, can you really blame me for not making him anything very often?? 🙂
Moving on… I found this little gem on pinterest!!!
Matt loves Rolos and it’s different… perfect compromise!!! I was a little hesitant to try it because I scrolled down to read the comments… A lot of people were complaining that the dough was too runny and it didn’t set well. But since it was literally 4 ingredients how can you really mess that up, so I decided to try it out:)
Thank God I did!!!! Can we say Rolo-iffic, Rolo-tastic? Rolonderful? Get it?? 🙂 Sorry, I’ve been sick for a week now and my head is still a little foggy 🙂
I made a few tiny adjustments based on the reviews and comments but I didn’t change the recipe itself. Here are my suggestions:
**Make sure you do use the 18.25 oz. cake mix, I can see where it would be too runny if you just grabbed any box. I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Yellow Cake Mix.
**I put mine into an 8×8 to make thicker bars… They would have extremely thin if I would have used a 9×13. But it’s your preference, I’m sure either one would be fine.
**Because I used an 8×8 pan, I only needed about 1/2 the bag of Rolos. I quartered some leftover Rolos (that Matt didn’t eat) and sprinkled them on top and threw it back in the oven for a few min for them to melt. One comment I read stated she used the mini Rolos therefore she didn’t have to unwrap or cut in half…. Genius!!!!
**Variations: use different cake mixes and different candy. Let me tell you I’m notorious for finding recipes and trying out every variation I can think of!!!! I’m really excited to experiment with this one!!!! 🙂 I’ll let you know what I come up with:)
