Butterfinger® Cake

No recipe image available.A decadently rich and creamy dessert, a little goes a long way. Try layering in a trifle dish or deep clear glass bowl for a delightful presentation.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 prepared angel food cake, crumbled
1/2 cup butter
4 large fresh egg yolks*
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (16-ounce) container whipped topping
8 (2.1-ounce) Butterfinger® candy bars

Cooking Directions:

  1. Crush candy bars (while still in wrappers ) using a rolling pin.
  2. Cream butter, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla. Stir in whipped topping.
  3. Layer a 13x9x2-inch pan with half the cake crumbs; next layer with half the creamed mixture, then sprinkle with half the crumbled Butterfinger® candy. Repeat in same order with last half of ingredients.
  4. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

Makes 12 to 16 servings.

* highly recommends using pastuerized egg yolks.

Tip: Freezing the candy bars an hour before crushing helps keep the chocolate "firm" for crumbling.
