Recipe by southern chef in lo

This is great! Make sure you wait until you’re ready to serve before adding the crushed root beer candy. The prep time includes cooling time. Oh yeah, this is great with a cold glass of root beer on the side.

Everything about this cake is delicious! I just used 2 whole eggs for this in place of the egg whites and left out the hard root beer candies for the top as I did not have any, I sent this cake home with my DS as part of a Sunday take-home package lol!... thanks so much Dreamgoddess!...Kitten:)
