If there are two sweet treats that I love in this world, they are surely chocolate and cake (check out this cake mix cookies bars recipe, too). If that cake happens to be chocolate cake? Well, that is even better. But what about bringing the cake to the chocolate? That’s right, I’m talking about an easy cake batter chocolate bark recipe !
It is almost as fun to make as it is to eat!
Cake Batter Chocolate Bark Recipe
Doesn’t that just look fabulous? You can use different cake mixes to achieve different flavored bark, but for this easy cake batter chocolate bark recipe I just went with regular milk chocolate chips, a little devil’s food cake mix and white chocolate candy melts on top.
Then I added sprinkles, because every cake needs sprinkles! If you are feeling especially creative, you can even mix the sprinkles into the white chocolate to create a funfetti effect!
One of the lovely things about making this is that you can make as little or as much as you like! Because you are just using chocolate chips, you can easily make a half portion, or even a single serving portion, but who wants to eat just one piece? Reseal the bag for next time.
Tip: If you decide to double the recipe, make sure to adjust your cooking time accordingly, but make sure that you only cook it in 30 second intervals. Chocolate burns very easily and there is no bringing it back once it has burnt!
When you store this easy cake batter chocolate bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it can last up to two weeks. Though it probably won’t last that long if you have chocolate lovers in the house!

Cake batter chocolate bark
Prep Time: 10 minutes
6 oz (1 cup) milk chocolate chips
9 oz (1.5 cups) white chocolate candy melts (or white chocolate chips)
2 tbsp dry devil's food cake mix
Optional but awesome: chocolate sprinkles
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or waxed paper.
Microwave your milk chocolate at 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until it is melted. It should take 1.5 minutes to 2 minutes total, depending on your microwave and the type of chocolate you are using. Mix in the devil's food cake mix and pour it onto the prepared cookie sheet and smooth to about a 1/4 inch thickness and refrigerate while you work on the white chocolate.
Melt the white chocolate candy melts in the microwave the same way you melted the milk chocolate chocolate chips. Gently drop by spoon fulls onto your cooled milk chocolate and smooth over with the back of the spoon. I left a little bit of an edge from the milk chocolate showing for a cake frosting-like effect.
Add your sprinkles on top and refrigerate until the cake batter chocolate bark is set, which will take about 20 minutes. I like to break it into pieces by hand, but you can also cut with a knife.
