Rolo Cookie Bars

We recently had a new baby, and we have such generous neighbors that we had a bunch of meals brought into the house.

It seemed that with every meal brought was a dessert–which is a big deal in our house.  It’s not that I don’t like dessert (because I really do!), it’s just that my kids have egg allergies, and a lot of the desserts just aren’t the same or don’t work out using an egg substitute.  So, I’ve pretty much kept desserts out of the house except on special occasions.   But now each night my kids are asking what’s for dessert, what’s for dessert?

The other day, on Pinterest, I found a simple dessert called Rolo Cake Mix Bars from A Taste of Home that did not require eggs!  I was so excited I had to try it!

This Rolo Cake Mix Bars recipe is really simple!  All you needed was a yellow cake mix, evaporated milk, butter and rolo’s.

Then you mix the cake mix, milk, and melted butter

Divide it in half.  In a 9×13 greased pan smooth out half the cake mixture and bake it for about 8 minutes

Then you add the Rolo’s (cut in half) with the caramel side down

Drop the remaining dough by teaspoons onto the rolo’s

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown

  • 1 box (18.25 oz) yellow, vanilla or white cake mix, dry. Note: I've also made this with gluten-free cake mix and it was great!
  • 5 oz evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 40 Rolo Candies, unwrapped and cut in half


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.
  • With your mixer, beat cake mix, evaporated milk and butter until combined. Mixture will be thick and sticky.
  • Divide batter in half and press 1 half into the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake until just set, approximately 8-9 minutes.
  • Remove base from oven and place Rolo candies, caramel-side down on top.
  • Drop remaining batter on top of Rolos in teaspoon sized amounts.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes longer until top begins to golden.
  • Cool completely before cutting into squares.

These Rolo Cake Mix Bars are seriously so yummy!  The pan was gone in a day at our house.  My kids kept calling them cookies, and they just wanted more and more of them.

  3. This looks so good! Thanks!
  4. That look sooo good! I LOVE Rolos!
  5. This looks so good! I'm assuming you know that you can use flaxseed meal as an egg replacement in any recipe for cakes that you have....if you want the exact amount, then please feel free to email me :) I'm drooling for this one (I love Rolo!)
  6. Rollos are one of my all time favorite candies! I think I would NOT share this with my children :)
  7. that it would ruin my diet, temptress!!! get thee away! LOL
  8. christina moore says
    sounds great
  9. i'm making a cake today and wish I had rolos....yum
  10. Great combination of flavors. Our favorite egg-free dessert is krispie treats. Pinterest has helped me (maybe too much) find other variations on those too.
  11. Those look so good. THanks for sharing with us!
  12. Looks delicious. I will include this in my list. Raquel
  13. Good idea for family picnic.
  14. oh wow they look delicious,will definitley be making these tonight, thanks for sharing!
  15. that is sooo cool!!! trying this weekend!!!
  16. Oh man, this looks DELISH! I LOVE Rolos! Have you tried baking with applesauce in lieu of eggs? It works really well, so it's one way you can adapt recipes that have eggs in them.
  17. Amy Orvin says
    Thanks for the recipe. These look so yummy!!
  18. YUMM!! I am making these RIGHT NOW! But, how'd you fit 1/2 into a 9x13 pan?! I got it 3/4 of the way, but oh well. I am sure they'll be great!
    • The bottom layer is pretty thin but it raises as it cooks so I thought it covered the bottom just fine. You could also bake it in a smaller pan or use more on the bottom and leave less to drop on top.
  19. Thanks for recipe! yumm... I like your blog and I' follow you for FB, TW, GFC, Pinterest, Google Plus+! I hope your visit! HAPPY SUNDAY!

    I am always looking for new and different desserts. When I came across this recipe all I could think was yum yum yummy. I have got to try this. I love cake and I love Rolo's. The directions are so simple. I can hardly wait to try it. My only concern is the no eggs. Eggs are usually used to bind and hold a cake together. I am guessing the Carmel in the Rolo's will do that. We shall see.
  21. This sounds new and different.
  22. Thanks so much for the great recipe. I love rolo's and I bet this makes it good!
  23. I saw egg-free and got really excited because I have a vegan friend and I want to find desserts that work for her. This sounds like a really yummy recipe so I'll have to try it for my family and then find substitutes for everything else so she can have it too. Yum! Thanks for posting.
  24. OMG that looks so good...and easy. Never tried rolos before though, kinda scared.
  25. Jackie Griebel says
