Leftover Easter Candy Cake

It has taken me a couple years to muster up the courage to make this recipe for Leftover Easter Candy Cake. It intrigued me from the minute I stumbled upon it at, but cake with candy in it? It sounded too sweet (if there can be such a thing) and maybe a little gross. For the sake of Candy Addict readers, though, I decided to wield my spatula with confidence and bake the cake! I am really glad I did, because this is actually a very delicious cake and a definite crowd pleaser (at least it pleased the crowd I fed it to).

Chopped Easter candy for Leftover Easter Candy Cake

This cake is more like a coffeecake than a regular cake. You bake it in a bundt or tube pan, and it doesn’t really call for any frosting. The recipe has two sticks of butter in it (yes, two), so it is pretty rich! You need two cups of chopped leftover candy. To ensure that the cake wouldn’t be too terribly disgusting, I tried to use tasty Easter candies, such as mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, Nestle’s crunch eggs, and Hershey’s candy-coated eggs, as well as some Dove dark chocolate hearts left over from Valentine’s. For good measure I also included some marshmallow Peeps and cocoa Peeps.

See the candy chunks swirled in the batter? Yum. This cake is best served within an hour or two after baking, because at that point the chocolate will still be slightly melted and will ooze inside your mouth. The cake is still good the following day, though–I tested it out just to make sure.

    Oh my god! This is too funny — I’m so glad that you were brave enough to explore this recipe. I imagine you should be somewhat selective in the candy you throw into the cake, but I like to random ‘chow mein’ mish-mash of it all.

    Hi there, I made the cake last night and changed a few things – added 1/2 c cocoa to hide the discoloration of candy coatings and added 1/2 c hot water, my batter seemed awfully thick. Let it sit overnight and had some with my morning coffee – excellent! Except the jellybeans weere a bit of a rude awakening, I think I’ll leave those out next time. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    My kids have lots of chocolate left over from easter, they also love marsh mellows, so I was thinking of making this cake with choc and marsh mellows with the help of my two children. I only have round baking tins, will they be ok???
