Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Butterfinger Cake

Butterfinger Cake

I don't bake a lot of cakes, but since my husband's bithday is on the 18th, my daughter's is the 19th, and mine on the 23rd, buying a cake for everyone would get quite expensive, so we only get the fancy, decorated, store bought cakes for my daughter. However, I am one who believes everyone deserves a cake on their birthday, I decided to bake one for Jason this year. Butterfingers are one of his favorite candy bars and I found this recipe in my "to make" pile. It's been sitting there for 4 or so years, so I figured I'd dust it off and give it a whirl this year. I had my doubts on this one, but to my surprise, it was DELICIOUS!

Butterfinger Cake


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag Butterfinger candy bars, crushed
  • 1 jar caramel ice cream topping


  1. Bake cake in a 13 x 9-inch cake pan or 2 8 inch round cake pans as directed on box. While cake is still warm, poke holes in cake and pour all the sweetened condensed milk into holes. Pour caramel sauce over cake and let cool.
  2. Spread Cool Whip over cake and sprinkle crushed Butterfingers over the top of cake. Keep refrigerated.

*Side note-I used a little less than a full can of the condensed milk. It can get soupy otherwise*

Pardon how unpretty it turned out. I'm not on the Ace of Cakes level when it comes to decorating baked goods. Besides, in our house, it only matters how it tastes, and this one tasted pretty darn good.
