Hershey Candy Bar Cake

Flip it!

This cake is rich, moist, creamy…Its a choclate lover’s dream. Great to impress people at a potluck or for a special birthday cake. Its got WOW potential.

This is a surprisingly light cake, and extremely delicious. I requested it from my grandmother-in-law for my birthday, as it’s one of my favorites, and it’s always a winner. We typically leave out the pecans, and use plain Hershey bars as we have family members with nut allergies. Even with the changes, it’s one of my favorites!

I made this once for a family gathering and now everyone insists that it be at every gathering! It’s so easy; you use a box cake mix! For chopping the chocolate bars, I put them in the freezer, then hit them with a hammer while still in the wrapper.

For anyone that loves chocolate and fabulous very-easy-to-make-and-spread frosting, this takes the cake!! 🙂 My only suggestion is to use three 9″ layer cake pans instead of the 8″. The 8″ pans make too narrow a cake in diameter, and too high (would not even fit in my glass cake dome holder). The 9″ pans make for a much more attractive and large, more normal appearing cake. And because the cake layers are just a tad thinner, the frosting in between the layers is thicker — looks beautiful when it’s cut and tastes terrific! Just remember to bake the 9″ layers a few minutes less and test with a toothpick. And be sure to use a nice amount frosting between the layers — the recipe makes plenty.

This cake is so extremely moist and the frosting is wonderful! The only thing I would add is some vanilla or other extract to the cream cheese base for the frosting to give it a little more flavor.

Delicious cake and the frosting is amazing! I made this recipe for a friends birthday, and it received rave reviews. I changed the recipe a bit because my friend requested chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. So, I cut each of the three layers in half and frosted every other layer with the candy bar frosting and chocolate on the others. Then I frosted the outside of the cake with chocolate. To decorate I used hershey’s hugs because of the brown and white stripes. It matched the inside and was a neat effect.
