A Sweet Challenge

I (Tina) recently received a gift that consisted of a box of caramel cake mix, a tub of dark chocolate frosting and a bag of Heath bits. Along with this gift came a challenge to create a dessert using these ingredients. Challenge accepted! First I thought I’d make dark chocolate caramel Heath cupcakes. Then I considered making caramel cake cookies with dark chocolate frosting and Heath sprinkles on top. I even wondered if I could use these ingredients to create an unique kind of cake pop. But the winner ended up being Dark Chocolate Frosted Heath Caramel Cake Bars. A winner indeed!
