Holy Cow Cake

I don’t exactly know where this Holy Cow Cake recipe comes from. What I do know is that Momma Daisy has made it for a long time and it is a family fav! I don’t know where its name comes from either… maybe its just “Holy Cow!” good.
This cake starts with a basic chocolate mix, your preference – German Chocolate or Devils Food; soaked in a rich caramel mixture that results with a super moist, “oh-my, that’s amazing cake.” It is then layered with crushed Butterfingers candy bars and a cream cheese-whipped cream frosting. There’s enough going on with this cake that no one will know, or even care that you started with a mix! Super yummy!

    Oh My! That looks so rich and yummy. I might have to save that one for winter time when I am no longer expected to wear a bathing suit! 🙂

    Yum! We often have cake like this at my dad’s house, but it does not include the cream cheese. I’ll have to pass this tip along. I bet the cream cheese makes it even better!

    I have made this several times since first seeing the recipe several years ago. It always turns our
    wonderfuls and someone always ask for the recipe. You can’t go wrong with this cake!

    Wow! This looks wonderful – almost better than a “Better Than Sex Cake.” I live in a senior/handicapped apartment complex, and this is definitely my 4th of July potluck recipe – thanks!

    I will make this. Sounds wonderful. I also like changing up ingredients to try. We have peanut allergies. I would like to try kit kat candy bars.
