Candy Bar Cake recipe

For the anonymous commenter on my birthday post, here is the recipe for the Candy Bar Cake.  It's definitely my favorite!  But based on the size of my "Goodies" board on Pinterest, I have many new favorites waiting to be tried.

Candy Bar Cake
Liberally adapted from Allrecipes.com

1 package devil's food cake mix
1 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 small package instant vanilla pudding mix

1 1/2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 (12 oz) container Cool Whip, thawed
7 Heath bars, coarsely chopped (substitute any candy bar you'd like)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Prepare 3 8-inch cake pans (my sister introduced me to Baking Pam and I haven't looked back.  It's flour and oil in one quick spray!).

Combine cake ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Beat on low speed until combined.  Beat 4 minutes on medium speed.  Pour batter into prepared pans.

Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Turn out cakes from pans and allow to cool completely.

For the filling, beat cream cheese, sugar and confectioner's sugar until smooth.  Fold in Cool Whip and candy bar pieces.  Spread between cake layers and on outside.  I then added a layer of chocolate buttercream to the outside for a cleaner finished look.  And because chocolate is fantastic.
