7 Ways to Perk Up Boxed Cake Mix

Candy Bar Bits

Crushed candy bars can offer a unique flavor to any boxed cake mix. A peanut butter and chocolate bar will provide a much different flavor than a toffee bar or butterscotch flavored bar, but they would all be delicious. Choose candy bars that aren’t too gooey and can easily be chopped into small pieces or crushed with a wide flat side of a knife. Stir the candy bar bits right into the batter or use them in between each layer of a cake mixed with a little bit of frosting to hold them together.
