Butterfinger Poke Cake

What’s your favorite candy bar? Snickers, Reeses, Mr. Goodbar or something else? My favorite candy bar is a Butterfinger!  Its crispy peanut butter core covered in chocolate makes it the perfect candy. Butterfingers are delicious and when you add them to any dessert it makes that dessert ten times better! 

This Butterfinger poke cake is the perfect potluck or tailgate dessert, because it’s simple and full of flavor. This cake is so easy to make and will be a hit every time you make it. This cake will make it hard to control yourself, so make sure you have friends to share it with. I’ve made it several times and never have leftovers. It has gotten great reviews every time, plus it only takes a few ingredients. 

This cake uses a yellow cake mix, condensed milk, caramel, whipped cream, and Butterfingers to make a moist cake full of flavor. You will love the mix of caramel and Butterfingers and the sweetness of the whipped cream! Try this cake and you won’t regret it! 

Here are the ingredients you will need: 

  • 1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make the cake
  • 1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12.25-oz) jar Smucker’s caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 (8-oz) tub Cool-Whip
  • 4 regular sized Butterfinger candy bars, crushed

Instructions:

  1. Bake cake in a 9×13-inch pan according to the directions on the package.
  2. While the cake is baking, mix the condensed milk and caramel topping until well blended. 
  3. When the cake is done and while it’s still hot, poke holes in it with a fork or straw.
  4.  Pour milk mixture over the cake.
  5.  Allow the cake to cool completely.
  6. Sprinkle two candy bars over the cake. Spread Cool Whip over the top, then sprinkle the remaining candy bars on top. 
  7. Chill and serve. 

Notes: 

This cake needs to be stored in the refrigerator! If you have leftovers this cake never lasts around my house.
