Candy Snack Cake

Ya'll know how much I love Paula Deen's recipes. Yesterday, I was watching her on Food Network, and she made the most yummiest dessert! Being the little baker that I am, I decided to make it myself, and look how it turned out!

It looks EXACTLY like it did on the show! I was so impressed with it, that I decided to share it with ya'll as well!

Candy Snack Cake
1 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
In a bowl, combine butter and sugar.
Beat at medium speed until fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
Beat in vanilla extract.
In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
Gradually add to butter mixture beating until combined.
Spoon batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

1/4 cup butter
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
3 TBSP buttermilk
2 cups confectioner sugar
3 regular size Snicker's Candy Bars cut into 1/2" pieces

In a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat.
Add cocoa, buttermilk, and 1 cup confectioners sugar.
Stir in candy bars and allow to melt.
Stir in remaining confectioner's sugar.
Immediately spread over hot cake.
Top with whipped cream if desired.

Hope you enjoy it! It is sooooo good!
