My favorite part of Summer is finally here: Big Brother.
I mean really, what is better than watching days of people sleeping, eating, and gossiping condensed down to about 40 minutes of craziness.
And hellooo, I get that the show is total trash and has pretty much no redeeming qualities or educational value, but the main reason I like Big Brother is that it’s the only reality show I could actually go on and not like, die or get some kind of a funky rash.
I mean, I refuse to get in a hot tub that was built for more than one person and is used for anything other than medicinal purposes. And we all know that that rules out at least 75 percent of reality television.
But just so you know, I wouldn’t be the type of player that wins HOH right off the bat or decides to make “big moves”. No, I’d be the mama type that made everyone breakfast and just floated around and said what everyone wanted to hear. Then suddenly I’d be in the final two and the jury would be all “what did you really do, I mean you never won any competitions or made any BIG MOVES” and I’d be all “oh, that was my strategy. You see, I knew right off the bat that I’d have to fly under the radar. And remember that one time I made you those chocolate chip cookies? That was me playing the game”.
But really, I wouldn’t have won any competitions because I suck at stuff like swimming and running and also I hate for people to not like me so I am very non-confrontational.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that Big Brother could be just the ticket for me to make half a million bucks off of my laziness and desperate need to be liked.
And I’m fine with that.
So, because the only thing that makes trashy TV better is an equally trashy dessert to go with it, I present you with Butterfinger Cake. A little trashy, very sweet, and almost embarrassing at how much you love it.
1 box chocolate cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge), plus eggs, water, and oil needed to prepare
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar hot caramel sauce (the ice cream topping kind)
1 8 oz container Cool Whip
3 full sized Butterfinger bars, crushed
Prepare cake mix and bake as according to instructions on the box. Leave oven on. While cake is still hot, poke holes in cake (I used a wooden skewer). Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the hot cake. Let sit until most of the milk sinks in.
Heat caramel in microwave just until it is a good consistency for pouring. Pour evenly over cake. Turn oven off and then place the cake in the oven for about 5 minutes. Take out and place in refrigerator overnight.
When ready to serve, spread Cool Whip over the top of the cake and sprinkle with crushed Butterfingers.
This cake is just ridiculous in it’s yumminess…enjoy!!
