Moist vanilla cake topped with homemade caramel, salty peanuts, and sweet candy corn.
I love cake bake bars. One thing that is so great about them is that they can be customize for any holiday.
For Halloween, I decided to dress them up with some peanuts and candy corn. I love the flavor of candy corn but it can sometimes be a little overpowering. Pairing them with salty peanuts provides a wonderful contrast.
