Butterfinger Caramel Cake Recipe

This Butterfingers Caramel Cake is so simple and full of delicious flavor. If you need a quick and delicious cake recipe, we highly recommend this one. It is so moist and full of Butterfinger flavor.

My husband is the biggest Butterfinger  candy bar fan I have ever met. I decided I’d give this cake a try, and let me tell you, I won wife of the day with this one. Maybe even wife of the year.
It was so easy to make and full of butterfingers flavor. It’s also a poke cake, which is a win for everyone. Nobody likes a dry cake, so this one will always be a hit. If you know a Butterfingers candy bar lover, you need to make this for them (even if that person is you, you deserve it).
I had originally planned to post something cute and lovely for Valentine’s day, but trust me, this cake is the epitome of love.
It is simple to make, but tastes amazing. The gooey caramel and the peanut-butter goodness of Butterfingers take this cake over the top.

could i make this using caramel instead of sweetened condensed milk?

One year for my birthday I literally asked for a can of sweetened condensed milk. You could say I have a small love for it.

It’s just so simple and absolutely delicious.

We poured sweetened condensed milk into the holes of this cake, however, you could easily do the same, using caramel sauce.

I prefer the sweetened condensed milk, it is a very similar taste to caramel, just a little more subtle, but you could definitely use sweetened condensed milk if you prefer.

would chocolate cake work with this recipe?

I like this recipe with the white or yellow cake mix, however, it would also be delicious with a chocolate. It may be a little rich, but it would still be absolutely scrumptious.

Ingredients

  • 4 (1.9 ounce) crushed butterfinger candy bars, divided
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12.25 ounce) jar caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cool Whip

Instructions

  1. Place candy bars in freezer. Make cake according to directions on the package.
  2. While cake is baking, mix milk and caramel topping until well blended. When the cake is done and while it?s still hot, poke holes all over in it with a fork. The more holes you poke, the more caramel sauce will seep through the cake. Pour caramel/milk mixture over the cake. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  3. Pull candy bars out of freezer and smash with a hammer while they are still in their packages. Sprinkle two candy bars (half of them) over cake. Spread Cool Whip over the candy bars. Then sprinkle the remaining candy bars on top. Chill for at least an hour before serving. Place leftovers in the fridge (if you have any).

  4. I made this cake yesterday for a friends birthday. Can I just say it was and is amazing! I used Sugar Free Caramel Topping and Fat Free Cool Whip. My husband was convinced he wasn't going to like it because he isn't a fan of caramel and butterfingers, but he is totally sold on it. Everyone loved it. I just found your site the other day and I will definitely be searching for other recipes to try. I always do dinner and a cake for our friends birthday. Next birthday is in February. So I'm already searching for a new cake. Thanks Ladies!
