I’ve been making this Butterfinger Poke Cake for as long as I can remember.  I got the recipe from a coworker at one of my very first jobs in The Ham.  It has become one of our all-time favorite dessert recipes.  It is so good and soooo easy to make.  Chicken Legs is always requesting this cake, but I rarely make it because we can’t control ourselves around it!  The cake is incredibly moist, and I love the caramel and Butterfingers together.  Make this for your next potluck or tailgate party.  It will be a huge hit; I promise!

Equipment:

Ingredients:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make the cake
  • 1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12.25-oz) jar Smucker's caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 (8-oz) tub Cool-Whip
  • 4 regular sized Butterfinger candy bars, crushed

Instructions:

  • Bake cake in a 9×13-inch pan according to direction on the package.
  • 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 in it with a fork or straw. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely.
  • Sprinkle two candy bars over cake. Spread Cool Whip over the top, then sprinkle the remaining candy bars on top. Chill.

Notes:

Store cake in the refrigerator.
I like to freeze the butterfingers and crush them right in the wrapper.

  1. Wonderful with yellow or chocolate cake mix, and topped with Butterfinger, Heath Bar bits, or even leave the caramel out and top it with crushed Oreos. My favorite is to combine smooth peanut butter with the milk over low heat until smooth, then top the Cool Whip with crushed Reese's Cups

  2. My husband's cousin made this for our family reunion this summer and it truely is AMAZING! She made it with Devil's Food Cake and even my husband (who doesn't really like cake) wanted another piece. It went quickly and then people were sitting there trying to scrap every last bit out of the pan.

  3. Stephanie, one of my older cookbooks has this recipe in it, and everytime I run across it I pause and think I should make it. Your photos are gorgeous and it looks WONderful.
