Butterfinger Cake

Ready in 45 minutes

This butterfinger cake recipe is the best cake ever, I make it all the time.

"The flavor was WONDERFUL - everything was great EXCEPT, I don't think that a German Chocolate cake mix is the right cake to use. It wasn't substantial enough of a cake to "hold up" under the Eagle Brand milk and the caramel sauce. As it was cut it broke down more and more and just got really ugly really fast. The devil's food cake mix isn't as "soft" and would hold up better."

Are you making this? 
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix; (baked according to package directions)
5 Butterfinger candy bars
1 jar Caramel ice cream topping
1 can Sweetened condensed milk
Cool Whip; for topping
Chocolate syrup

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Bake the cake according to package directions in a 13 x 9 inch pan. When it's done, and while it's still hot, punch holes in the cake and pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top making sure some of it sinks in the holes.

Do the same with the caramel ice cream topping. Sprinkle on some of the broken candy pieces. When it's cool, spread the Cool Whip topping on the top, and then sprinkle the rest of the broken bars. Then drizzle more caramel all over and then drizzle chocolate syrup all over in zig zags.

Hint! Put all your candy bars in the freezer. When you're ready to use them, take them from the freezer.

Leave the wrappers on and take a mallet or a hammer and smash them inside the wrappers. Keep cool

until you need them.



Best Cake Ever!

This cake is good but very sweet. I made it once and only at 1 piece and the rest my bf took to work for the guys to eat. Tastes good but is just way too much. I wouldn't make this cake again.

Made this for my daughter and her friends at college. Was a big hit! Used dark chocolate cake and snickers. Now need to make a other one for the kids at home.
