Butterfinger Cupcakes and $150 Visa Card Giveaway

Here is a re-post of a choco-tastic recipe. Read about the time I "tried" to break my chocolate habit at Cheat Day News and Reviews. Tell me a funny story (any funny story will do) and you will be entered to win a $150 Visa Gift Card! Be sure to leave your comment at Cheat Day News and Reviews. Giveaway ends 10/10/10.

You're welcome!

I say that because you are going to be thanking me for years to come for sharing this awesome recipe. I know this because I have been thanking my sis, Amy, for about 10 years now.

She makes this cake with Skor bars on top, but I opted for Butterfinger bars since I couldn't find Skor bars at my grocery store a few years back.

Whether you opt for Skor or Butterfingers, this will be the best darn cake you ever tasted.

Here we go:

Butterfinger Cupcakes

1 yellow cake mix
1 small box of instant chocolate pudding
2 cups warm water
2 eggs

Mix together according to cake mix package. Pour into prepared 9 x 13 pan or cupcake papers in muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely. Note: The cake will be nice and fluffy when it comes out of the oven and then it tends to fall a little. Don't worry, the frosting will cover the top and it will be beautiful! I promise!

1 cube butter or margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. Whipped Topping
2-3 Butterfinger candy bars

Melt butter and mix with powdered sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on cooled cake or cupcakes. Crush Butterfngers and sprinkle over frosted cake. Keep cake in fridge.

Tip: I put the frosting in a large ziplock bag, cut off a corner and piped the frosting around the cupcake. I loved how it turned out and it was so easy!

  1. oh dear! I may have to make these this weekend!!! yum!!!

    Funny Story.........when I was pregnant with our first i was very emotional. any little thing would set me to crying. so on my way home from work one day i had to stop at the store to pick up a couple of small things. as i was looking for a line to wait in i started crying (this was back before self check out lanes) and by the time i got home from the store i was a rotten mess. my husband asked me what was wrong thinking it was something serious and i burst out "i only had 2 items to buy and all the lines were huge and i had to wait a long time to get buy them!!!" booo hooo booo hooo!!!!!! he started laughing (he really couldn't help it) and of course that made me cry more.
    we still laugh about that today, especially since we are expecting #4. he'll ask every now and then how long the lines were and if i'm ok about it!
    thanks for the chance!!

  2. Oh, these look so yummy! Funny story: I was a single teacher for awhile and I had several siblings come through my class. At some point I got married. One time (after I was married) one of the parents was talking to her son and used my maiden name. He said "Mom, that not her name now, that's her made up name!" Anyway, I thought it was cute!

  3. This is definitely for a cheat day, but looks totally worth it!!

  4. Butterfingers are my hubby's favorites. We may be trying these very soon!

  5. I bet the pudding makes them extra moist and the butterfingers make them extra special!

  6. 1st the dessert looks delcious!
    2nd - a funny story.
    My 3 year old upon looking at his macaroni said, "I'm not eating macaroni with this Brad Paisley on it!" (it was parsley he was referring to)
