Hershey Bar Cake

I came across a Hershey Bar Cake when I was a part of a wonderful mentoring program at my church called Apples of Gold.

It is an incredible devotional/homemaking program where the older women 'teach' the younger women;
    Titus 2:3-5 "Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored."

Here is the Hershey Candy Bar Cake recipe, the only thing original to me is the decorations. The decorating possibilities are endless for this cake.

Ingredients Needed For Cake Part:
  • 1 box of chocolate devil foods cake mix
  • 1 small box of vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk

Combine all ingredients and place in 3 greased and floured cake pans and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Ingredients for Icing:
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 12 oz. Cool Whip
  • Hershey Bars, chips, etc. for topping

Mix well the first 3 ingredients together, then fold in the thawed Cool Whip and some of the Hershey bars chopped up.

Spread icing between layers and on top and sides of cake.

You can decorate the top with chocolate shavings from a candy bar. I also used white chocolate chip drops as a last minute add and I thought they looked cute :)

The hearts were just the back of Hershey bars cut carefully with heart shaped cookie cutters.

Some people put as many as 10 Hershey bars in this cake, but I brought it down to 5 or 6 (like that makes it any better for you).

Refrigerate the cake until you are ready to serve.

Hi Ashlee,

Thanks for entering your scrumptious Hershey Bar Cake. Thanks, too, for sharing the story behind how you were introduced to it.

Your church group sounds wonderful and just what the Scriptures teach. I wish there were more churches with a group like that.

My new site, AngieBerg.com is going to cover a whole section on a woman's devotional life. Perhaps you'd like to pop over occasionally and share some of the lessons the "older" women have been teaching.

Hi Liz,

I'm guessing by the ingredients that the batter is going to be dense, kind of like what we call a "mud cake" here in Australia. :)

If you look at the Ashlee's photo, that cake is 3 layers, so they must not be very thick layers. Yours is probably right, but the proof will be in the eating!

You said the icing was yummy, but we want to know what you think of the finished masterpiece. It really does sound scrumptious.

Was the batter of the cake supposed to be real thick? Mine was and I followed the directions exactly. The cake didn't rise very much at all. I haven't tasted this cake yet, however the icing is heavenly.
