It’s kind of hard for me to talk about Butterfingers without wanting to shove like 7 of them in my mouth. It’s even harder for me to talk about this Butterfinger Bomb Cake without wanting to stick my FACE in it so I’m literally eating this as I’m talking. (It’s oozing with caramel deliciousness by the way.)

What’s awesome is that I didn’t even have to get a cart when I stopped at Walmart for the ingredients. I didn’t even need a BASKET, dang! Just 5 ingredients and wa-bam. CAKE! (Butterfinger BOMB cake….)

Another cool thing about this cake. You can put SpoooOOOooooky Halloween decorations on top! Like those creepy plastic spider ring things…. MWAAAHAHAHA….

Speaking of which. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?! A Bumble Bee? A Turtle? A cranky, non-dresser upper person? (That might very well be me, actually….) Do you at least dress up your lil’ doggie? I should make my Toby boy dress up as a pumpkin or something….

Happy baking!! An hey, what else do you like to make with Butterfingers?!?!!
