I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to my Easter Treats this year! It’s right around the corner and I can’t wait to eat! My favorite Easter Treat? Anything BUTTERFINGER® including BUTTERFINGER® Cup Eggs and of course BUTTERFINGER® NestEggs. You know I had to try them out early (hey I had to!). Even now sitting here, I am dreaming about eating some more! I knew I had to find a way to use BUTTERFINGER® Cup Eggs in a Dessert and so BUTTERFINGER® Delight Cake was born and it is amazing!

I do feel a bit behind this year in my Easter Prep. The last few years Easter has been “late” in Spring and this year it’s just so early! I had to take a minute and get myself together. I made an Easter Prep List to make my life easier (or I’ll forget stuff!). I made a couple of lists actually, 1 was a shopping list of all the things I will need, the 2nd list was a list of my spring cleaning that needs to happen, and the third was a list of things I can pre-make for Easter (and days to make them so I don’t get lost!). Get out your pen and paper (or make it on your phone) and just write down everything you need (top of your list should be BUTTERFINGER® Cup Eggs!). Keep in mind – this is a busy time of year. Not EVERYTHING has to be from scratch – get some cheats on the way by making semi-homemade dishes! They are my favorite when it’s a holiday! BUTTERFINGER® Delight Cake is the perfect example – not from scratch but AMAZING just the same!

I hopped (get it?) on down to Walmart with list Number 1. I know I can count on Walmart to have everything I need for Easter so I’m not running all over the place (last thing I need). And, of course Walmart pulled through. I got all of my ingredients to make BUTTERFINGER® Delight Cake, plus all the other things on my list. YEA!

After I got home I was ready to get to work. First things first – one of the reasons (besides the taste that makes my mouth water) that I love BUTTERFINGER® Cup Eggs and BUTTERFINGER® NestEggs is that they have no artificial colors and flavors, added colors from natural sources. Pretty Awesome huh? I think so. They don’t need any!Delicious BUTTERFINGER® Delight Cake with layers of chocolate, peanut butter and whipped cream! Perfect for holidays, it'll be a hit!

You’ve got to admit this cake looks delicious and easy, right? Perfect for a crowd too, can’t beat that!

  1. This looks delicious! I will have to share it with my sister who is hosting this year! 🙂 [client]

  2. Why do you poke holes in the cake? Isn’t the whipped cream cheese and peanut butter mixture too thick to soak into the poked holes? Looks fantastic though!!

    • It was a bit thicker than I intended (but super delicious), you can skip the hole poking if you’d prefer.
