Candy Bar Cake

Wanna make a delicious cake?? Then try this recipe!

For my sister’s birthday celebration I was the official cake baker (per usual in my household).

The highlight of the meal was the cake. I combined her love of candy with a delicious and moist cake,using a recipe found off of AllRecipes.com and titled: Chocolate Candy Bar Cake. I tweaked the recipe a small amount, using Butterfinger, resulting in a final product that was amazing. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Cake
    • 1 (18.25 oz) package of Devil’s Food cake mix
    • 1 1/2 cups of milk
    • 3 eggs
    • 3/4 cup of vegetable oil
    • 1 (3.5 oz) package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • Frosting
    • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
    • 1/2 cup white sugar
    • 1 cup confectioners sugar
    • 1 (12 oz) container frozen lite whipped topping, thawed
    • 1 cup of chopped pecans (optional)
    • 4 (1.5 oz) bars milk chocolate candy, coarsely chopped * I used butterfingers instead*

Mix all the cake ingredients together. Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 8-inch pans to be baked at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes. After baking, let cool for at least 10-15 minutes.

While the cakes are cooling, gather the frosting ingredients, excluding the candy bars. Mix together the cream cheese, the white sugar, and the confectioners sugar and beat. Once the mixture is creamy, add the whipped topping and continue to beat the mixture. Put the candy bars in a large plastic bag and and smash. Take 3/4 of the smashed candy and fold into the frosting mixture.

Take the first of the 3 cakes and put on the bottom of the plate you are using. Frost the top of the first layer and place another cake layer on top. Do the same. Lastly, put the last cake layer on, and frost the top and the sides of the cake. Take the remaining candy pieces and put on top of the frosted cake. Eat and enjoy!
