Butterfinger Poke Cake

This cake is quickly becoming one of my go to favorites for a nice easy dessert that is a great crowd pleaser.  I first made it at Easter this year then replicated again for our family gathering at Thanksgiving....again, a big hit!

This really is an easy recipe to whip up for your next holiday or celebration.

All you need is a few simple ingredients: a cake mix (I prefer marble), caramel topping, condensed milk, butterfingers and cool whip....

Crush up those butterfingers: I used 10 fun size butterfingers all together

Mix cake ingredients as stated on the back of the box, bake and as soon as you remove it, poke holes all over with a could use a wooden spoon handle but I prefer the fork so more of the creamy caramel mixture gets into the cake.

Combine the condensed milk and caramel topping together

Pour it all over the cake mixture (yes, it will look like a flood) but don't will all soak into the cake later

Top with half of the Butterfinger bars you have crushed up and place in fridge to cool for about 15 minutes.

Add cool whip and the remaining Butterfingers...then cover and refrigerate overnight.... As much as you may want to eat it right away...step is so much better once everything has soaked into the cake.
