Caramel Heath Cake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Caramel Heath Cake is an original recipe I came up with by toying around with my almond squares formula. I substituted half of the white sugar with light brown sugar, added two packets of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations caramel packets, and topped it off with a bag of Heath chocolate baking bits. I used extra large eggs instead of large ones, turning this creation into a cake-like density rather than bars. This cake has a rich caramel flavor which is accented perfectly by the Heath bar topping. The caramel from the Heath bars melts into a sweet glaze,  eliminating the need for any frosting.
