Easy Butterfinger® Cake

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"Angel food cake, Butterfinger® candy bars and Cool Whip® are the well known favorites in this delightful (and easy) no-bake dessert. Looks great in a trifle bowl. I don't even like Butterfinger® bars and I thoroughly enjoy this stuff!! You can do this in a 9x13-inch pan as well, but the trifle looks so nice!"

I added sliced strawberries to it and it turned out great! Everyone loved it.

I only use about a half cup of confectioners sugar. Can be used with any candy bars. Our family go to for birthdays!
