Dip ‘n Drip Caramel Cake

The cake is back! And how. More luxurious, indulgent than ever – and in a format that’s easy to wrap and take home or give as a present.

In this recipe, chef Ryan combines a cake with crunch from caramelized nuts with an intensely rewarding caramel center and a golden caramel chocolate glaze on the outside. In short: will sell like hot cakes!
