How to Make Ma Ann's Hershey Bar Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. CAKE: Do not use ingredients the box calls for... instead, mix together the cake mix, buttermilk, eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla. Now follow box directions as far as beating the batter & cooking time. Cool layers well before you frost the cake.
  2. FROSTING: Cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar, using electric mixer, until smooth. Fold in the cool whip and hershey bar pieces. Frost between cooled layers, top and sides. Keep refrigerated.
  3. NOTE: I usually bake three 8" cake layers, although you can make three 9" layers. Great Tip: Another member, Barbara Pendley, suggested using chocolate shavings or curls on top.
