This recipe came out of our Chocolate Trends report, which says that people are delighting in putting unusual combinations together. It's the DIY world at its best--playing with food!

Foodie Byte: "Mashup" is the term given to technology or music that is a hybrid from more than one source. Mashups are also based on brands that normally are not associated with one another. So, in cooking, it's generally ingredients that you wouldn't think to put together--like candy and cake. They used to stand alone, but in this decadent mashup, they enhance each other in a fun and easy dessert.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Place a chocolate wafer in the bottom of each liner.
  4. Drop a few pieces of candy on top of the chocolate wafers.
  5. Make cake mix as indicated on package.
  6. Spoon cake batter over the candy to fill the liners.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
