{Sinful} Butterfinger Cake

Fair warning-this cake could be the death to your waistline, if you have it on a weekly basis! BUT I am definitely a supporter for indulging a little.This post is dedicated to my sister, Caroline,  she gave me the recipe for this ridiculously, delicious cake. To put this recipe/cake into perspective, its base is a German Chocolate Cake or Chocolate Devils Food Cake; I very much dislike chocolate. I know, I am un-American for that, but I just haven’t developed the taste buds for it…Not for lack of continually trying chocolate, I want to be ready for when my taste buds decide to make that change. I needed to give you that background info, because this cake is so SINFULLY GOOD that I even devour it! Yeah-that good. Below are the juicy details↓↓↓

  2. Remove cake from oven, with a fork, immediately poke holes throughout the cake∴…⋅∴BFpokingholes
  3. While the cake is hot, pour the entire can of condensed milk over the cake. Place the cake, overnight, in the fridge to soak.BEFOREAfter
  4. After soaking overnight, cover the top of the cake with cool whip (I used the entire 8oz tub, I ♥Cool Whip). BFcoolwhip
  5. Lastly, crush the Butterfinger bars and sprinkle the pieces on top of the cool whip. (I like using a large, plastic bowl so I won’t break anything.) FYI you can use Mason Jars for many things. BFmasonjar

I may or may not have had this for my dinner…Don’t judge. I’m also realizing that I have a slight obsession with condensed milk; I’ll  just blame that on my Southern roots. This recipe has always been a fan-favorite and great for any special occasion. As always, please leave me any comments, questions or photos about this recipe!
