I think people fit into one of two camps – those who love candy corn and those who don’t love candy corn. Here’s the thing about these cake bars that I can promise you: it doesn’t matter which camp you fall into because you’re going to love them regardless.

I’m going a little bit outside the box this year and making some delicious treats to share with you for the fall/Halloween holidays.

I recently partnered with my favorite sweet brand, HERSHEY’S, and I’m excited to share today’s treat with you. So far I’ve made no-bake mummy truffles and spiderweb cookie pizza . . . and now you’re going to learn how to make candy corn cake bars!

Halloween Cake Bars

Gather These Supplies

  • One box white or yellow cake mix
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Hershey’s Snack Size Candy Corn Bars – at least 10
  • Water as needed
  • 8” x 8” square pan
  • Cooking spray to coat pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray your square pan with nonstick spray.

Mix cake mix with milk and egg

Open cake mix and pour into a bowl. Stir out the clumps as needed using a spoon.

Pour the ¼ cup vegetable oil into the cake mix and stir to combine.

Add the milk and egg and stir to combine. The mixture will start to get thick . . . it if becomes too thick, add a touch of water. You want it thin enough to stir, but not too thin. Add just enough water that makes it stir-able.

Next you’re going to add the magic ingredient: Hershey’s Candy Corn Snack Size Bars.

Stirring candy corn bars into a cake mix

Grab your candy corn bars and break them up inside the packages. You’ll want at least 10 of the snack size bars . . . keep crumbling until they are in small enough pieces to fold into your bars.

Fold the Candy Corn bar pieces into the mixture; stir to combine thoroughly.

Cake batter in the oven

Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until the edges are brown and the center is done (you can test with a toothpick; make sure it comes out clean).
