Individual Snickers Chocolate Layer Cake screams dig-into-me-and-eat-me-now! The silky smooth creaminess of the chocolate whipped cream contrast nicely with the crunch of the nuts and chocolate chips. Pair that with interesting and unique caramel bits makes each spoonful of this mini layer cake the perfect bite!
Some times you don’t need a huge cake, even though they’re impressive to look at they can be messy to serve. I find it awkward at times if I’m having a dinner party to cut a big layer cake.
Enter individual sized layer cakes!
Why I like individual mini layer cakes
- Every one gets their own cake, great if you don’t like to share desserts (like me)!
- There’s more icing on a mini layered cake
- They’re cute!
- Mini layered cakes look impressive. Take note, restaurants love to serve individual dessert portions!
- Individual small cakes make a great ‘Make your own’ dessert buffet. Set up a dessert table with small cakes and various toppings and let guests built their own cake! How much fun is that?!
I made Individual Snickers Chocolate Layer Cake for a recent dinner party. Because I was short on time, I started with a cake mix and pumped up the flavor. I baked the layers in a 11×15 inch sheet pan. By doing this, the layers were thinner than when baked in traditional 9×13 or 8 inch pans. This makes the layers easy to layer and build taller if desired. Plus, you can add four or five layers if you want. Adding more layers means more icing…that means you think like I do, let’s be besties!!
After your cake is done, the rest is easy! I used easy ingredients for the icing and extras to give me the Snickers candy bar flavors. A chocolate ganache, caramel and peanuts were my trifecta.
Another great little tip, use the pieces of cake that’s left when you cut the circles to make a trifles!
