Sharing is caring!

If you are looking for a super easy and extremely tasty cake, you need to make my delicious Butterfinger Cake! Decadent chocolate cake, a creamy caramel infused throughout, and then topped with whipped topping and crushed Butterfinger candy bar. You will truly LOVE this one!

Baking cakes has been a passion of mine for years. There is just something about making a cake for someone and watching them drool over each bite. It's like an author whose book gets on the New York Times Best Seller list. It is pure bliss!

Over the years, I have made cakes like my Easy Strawberry Buttercream Cake, or The Best German Chocolate Cake. Both are divine, but not take the cake like this one!

I think the reason why everyone loves this cake so much is that it is super easy to make.

How to Make a Butterfinger Cake

To start, you only need to get a Devil's Food Cake mix. You can use it as directed on the back of the box, or you can take it up a notch and turn your cake into a bakery-style cake using these tips.

Once you get the cake baked, let it sit for a few minutes.

I use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake. Then, while the cake is warm, I use caramel sauce and Sweetened condensed milk to make the creamy caramel sauce.

You just mix them together and then pour over the entire cake. It should seep down into the holes and make the cake moist and delicious.

Now, place the cake in the refrigerator to cool completely. Once the cake cools, you are going to top it with frozen whipped topping and a crumbled Butterfinger bar or two.

The amount of Butterfinger candy bar you put on top is totally up to you. I have added 3 bars before — but if more is your preference, then go for it!

Everyone who eats this cake RAVES about how delicious it is. And the best part, is that it is very simple to make!
