Butterfinger Cake Butterfinger Cake

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 box marble cake mix
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar prepared caramel topping
1 bag snack size Butterfinger candies
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
1 cup prepared chocolate syrup





Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Bake cake as directed in a 9x13 pan.  Let cool.  Poke holes all over cake.  In a medium-mixing bowl mix condensed milk and caramel topping.  Pour over cake.  Break Butterfinger candy and sprinkle half all over cake.  Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with remaining candy.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: Get ready for a sweet tooth fix with this cake! Cake can also be baked in two round cake pans. We made ours in individual servings using a small spring form pan. We suggest using freshly whipped cream. (Paula’s recipe is 1 cup heavy cream and ¼ cup confectioners sugar whipped together.)

Love this. But wanted to change up so put it into a trifle bowl. Layering the ingredients/toppings/candy. Very yummy!!Love my trifle bowl seems like a regular sized cake goes farther when I use it. I make a pretty good chocolate sundae trifle too.

This is great the way it is but also the latest way I tried it. Carrot cake and use the new cool whip chocolate frosting on top...crushed butterfingers only on top not in middle. Perfect. The kids all loved it.

Is fudge marble cake mix ok?

For anyone who has made this cake, does it need to be refrigerated before serving? This Thanksgiving will be my first time making the cake and I've seen alot of recipes online that say to chill the cake due to the whipped topping / and for best taste. Any suggestions is much appreciated.

I was raised in Johnson City , Tennessee,, my dad made a dish called Tomato pudding. He used day old biscuits, canned tomatoes and that’s all I remember. Do you have or maybe know someone that does know how to make it?  THANKS.
