Use up garden zucchini in these simple 5 ingredient Frosted Caramel Zucchini Bars. The caramel cake mix matches perfectly with the cream cheese frosting.
1boxDuncan Hines caramel cake mix16.5 ounces
16ouncescream cheese frosting
1tablespoonsweetened condensed milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8x8 square baking pan with cooking spray.
In a medium size bowl, combine the cake mix, egg, melted butter and zucchini. Mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Press the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 20-23 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the bars to cool.
Once the bars are cool, frost the bars with cream cheese frosting.
For the optional toppings:
In a small bowl, microwave the Kraft caramels and sweetened condensed milk in 15 second intervals, mixing inbetween times. Do this until the caramels are melted. Drizzle the caramel on top of the frosting. Sprinkle the top of the bars with the chopped walnuts. Cut into squares and serve.
We like these bars best when the are cold, so we store them in the fridge. They do not have to be stored in the fridge, but should be stored in an airtight container.
