Butterfinger Cake

Butterfinger Cake aka Better Than Sex Cake (HA!)

MOIST, melts in your mouth, DELICIOUS, easy, crowd pleaser...I could go on and on.

Anytime I bring this to a potluck or get together, it disappears immediately.


German Chocolate Cake Mix (I've used other chocolate varieties and they taste just as good)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar of caramel topping

1 tub of cool whip

4 butterfinger candy bars (crushed)


Bake cake as directed. I usually bake it in a rectangle glass baking dish then transfer it to a larger container *while still warm.*

Poke holes in cake with fork or skewer. Pour sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping all over.

This is what makes the cake super moist. Let it soak into the cake--it will absorb it like a sponge.

Then spread Cool Whip topping all over the cake.

Crush butterfinger candy bars and sprinkle all over the cake. I put the candy bars in a baggie and use a hammer to crush them.
*Tip: I have also used Heath Bar chips (found them next to the chocolate chips in the baking aisle) and it was super yummy!
