I went out this past weekend with my sister, Bonnie and my husband, Jake to our favorite Mexican restaurant, Hacienda Colorado. It has the best salsa and chips in the Denver area and makes an awesome all beef burrito with a roasted poblano sauce….drooling just thinking about it.
I usually eat way too much salsa to even think about desserts, but all of my sisters make me weak when it comes to the final course of any meal and when we are together there is no doubt at all, we will get dessert!
So naturally, Bonnie and I checked the dessert menu, and Tres Leches cake was our selection.
I love Tres Leches! While eating this, I randomly thought how awesome this would be as a Muddy Buddy.
Tres Leches is standardly know for a white cake soaked in 3 types of milk, also known as a milk cake.
So I incorporated evaporated milk, a white cake mix and caramel to bring this highly addictive Muddy Buddy.
Tres Leches brought to you as bite sized snack. White cake, caramel and evaporated milk, having remanent flavors of the famous milk cake.
- 1 ¼ to ½ white cake mix
- 8 heaping cups Chex cereal
- 1 – 11 ounce caramel candies, unwrapped
- 6 tablespoons evaporated milk
In a large paper bag add white cake mix, set aside.
Add cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
In a small sauce pan, add caramel candies and evaporated milk. Stir continuously until completely melted. Immediately pour over cereal and mix until all pieces are coated with caramel.
Pour coated cereal into a paper bag with the white cake mix, fold top over of paper bag and shake it, “shake-it like a Polaroid picture”.
Once completely covered, pour the Muddy Buddies into a serving bowl, now it is ready to eat.
Kids review: Are you kidding me, if I would not have hidden the bowl this would have been gone in a matter of minutes and my husband was the biggest fan of all.
