Leftover Halloween Candy Dump Cake

By JulieVR |

In the days and weeks after Halloween, everyone seems to have the same challenge: using up leftover Halloween candy. That has never been an issue around here – I have no trouble getting rid of mini chocolate bars – but having a giant bowl of them around the house is not the best idea. It was snowy and cold this Halloween, so not as many trick-or-treaters came around as usual. Which means leftovers. This dump cake makes use of whatever you have – chop it all up and dump it on top, and you have a gooey, chocolatey, crunchy cake (we used plenty of KitKats!) that in this case, was perfect for a casual birthday party.

You could, of course, use any thick from-scratch cake batter here; but I think the nature of a dump cake is to use a cake mix, and dump everything into a bowl. Which you’d do with ingredients anyway… at any rate, it made use of that cake mix that has been on my bottom shelf for approximately a year.

Leftover Halloween Candy Dump Cake

1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups chopped mini chocolate bars and/or caramels

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, milk, sour cream and eggs until smooth; pour into a greased 9×13″ pan. Sprinkle roughly chopped chocolate bars overtop and bake for 30 minutes, or until springy to the touch. Serve warm.
