  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 C butter softened
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 16 oz frozen whipped topping thawed
  • 1 prepared Angel Food Cake cut into small pieces
  • 4 full size Butterfinger bars chopped; plus more if desired


  • Beat the powdered sugar, butter and egg yolks in your mixer until creamy.
  • Fold whipped topping into the mixture.
  • Spread 1/2 the angel food cake pieces in the bottom of a trifle dish. Pour 1/2 the whipped topping mixture over the cake pieces. Top with chopped Butterfinger.
  • Repeat one additional layer with remaining cake, whipped topping and Butterfinger. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate at least one hour before serving.


Original recipe calls for 2 C. of powdered sugar. This dessert is incredibly rich and sweet and as a result the sugar has been cut down to 1/2 C. Feel free to go with the original if you desire.
