Butterfinger Poke Cake

This butterfinger poke cake is a moist yellow cake  filled with rich caramel. Then the whole thing is topped off with light whipped topping. I really like this because it is not as heavy as frosting. (Although I do love frosting, my family often complains it is “too” sweet).

Too sweet is as logical to me as:

a. A cookie with too many chocolate chips

b. Nachos with too much cheese

c. Popcorn with too much butter

Butterfinger Poke Cake Tips:

  1. This cake would also be tasty with chocolate or marble cake mix.
  2. If you forget to thaw your Cool Whip try floating it in a bowl of warm water. Do not microwave ,or it may separate.
  3. Feel free to use your favorite candy bar. I bet this would also be awesome with Snickers or Twix! I’m trying that next time!how to make a butterfinger cake

Butterfinger Poke Cake Trivia Tidbits

  1. In an early marketing campaign, Nestle dropped Butterfinger candy bars from airplanes. Chocolate falling from the sky? Sounds like a dream come true!
  2. Remember the “end of the world” in 2012 when the Mayan calendar ended? Butterfinger hopped on board ,and cut a working QR crop circle into a Kansas field.
