Here’s your grocery list:

Crunchy Crust:

  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup (or 5.33 tablespoons) of butter (make sure it’s softened)
  • 1 egg

Heavenly Filling:

  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup of toffee baking chips

The process to create these Magical Caramel-Pecan Delight Bars is so straightforward that even a rookie baker would enjoy the journey. Let’s get started.

  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (approximately 180°C). This is the perfect temperature for our delightful bars to bake and the flavors to meld. Now, grab a 9×13-inch baking dish and generously spray it with nonstick spray. This simple step ensures that our luscious bars will slide out easily without leaving behind any sticky remnants.
  • Step 2: Time to create our crunchy crust. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, the softened butter, and the egg. This crust mixture is a special part of our dessert bars as it brings in a scrumptious, crumbly texture that perfectly balances the creamy filling.
  • Step 3: Once the crust mixture is well blended, evenly spread it on the bottom of your prepared baking dish. This crust layer is going to encapsulate our creamy, dreamy filling, creating a symphony of flavors.
  • Step 4: Now, it’s time for the star of our recipe – the heavenly filling. Gently pour the sweetened condensed milk over the crust, sprinkle the chopped pecans, and finish it off with a scattering of toffee baking chips. These ingredients unite to form a creamy, crunchy, and deeply satisfying layer that will tantalize your taste buds.
  • Step 5: With everything assembled, slide your dish into the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes. You’ll know your magical bars are ready when the filling takes on a rich, golden hue and the irresistible aroma fills your home.
  • Step 6: Allow your dream bars to cool down before slicing into them. This resting time is crucial as it helps the bars set properly and enhances the fusion of flavors.


  • Pre-measure ingredients for a smoother process.
  • Use softened butter for a perfect crust.
  • Grease a 9×13-inch dish well to prevent sticking.
  • Evenly spread the crust in the dish.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk gently over the crust.
  • Bake until the filling turns golden.
  • Allow bars to cool completely before slicing.
  • Serve in small pieces due to richness.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Experiment with different nuts or cake mix flavors for variety.
