Milk Chocolate Bar Cake


1 package Swiss chocolate cake mix
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
10 (1.5-ounce) milk chocolate candy bars with almonds, divided
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Pour into 3 greased and floured 8-inch round cake pans.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until a wood pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and granulated sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until mixture is creamy.

Chop 8 candy bars finely. Fold cream cheese mixture and chopped candy into whipped topping.

Spread icing between layers and on top and sides of cake. Chop remaining 2 candy bars. Sprinkle half of chopped candy bars over cake. Press remaining chopped candy along bottom edge of cake.

Yield: 1 (3-layer) cake
Prep: 20 minutes
Bake: 25 minutes

Note: I have used Devil's Food cake mix, as well as Swiss. Both are delicious. I usually just make a 2-layer cake and wind up with left-over icing. This is quite sweet, but yummy!

Oh Les, I'm totally going to try this. I've been working to get rid of three pkgs of cream cheese. I'm too lazy to actually make a cheesecake, and I have one left, and this sounds great.

Thanks!

The picture really doesn't do it justice. I didn't make 3 layers and I didn't use all the icing, but it sure tastes good. The original recipe doesn't mention this, but after I frost the cake, I put it in the 'frig to keep the icing chilled. I prefer my candy bars cold anyway, so this seemed logical to me.

Drop me a note and let me know how it turns out for you.

Les, I finally made it! It's so good!

I wrote a ridiculously-long entry about it at my blog, if you wanted to read it (skip to the bottom half for the stuff about the cake itself) http://catht.vox.com/library/post/cake-cake-cake-cake.html

But I just wanted to thank you for the recipe. Yum yum.

Oh, Cathy! Your pictures of the cake look so much better than my gloppy slice!! I'm glad it turned out for you and that you finally got rid of that cream cheese. ;) It is quite sweet, isn't it?
