Fareway had Betty Crocker cake mixes and frostings on sale a while back for $1 apiece. Rachael and I each grabbed a few in a variety of flavors. We decided to make the triple chocolate fudge cake with the matching frosting.
For a bit of fun we melted ½ cup of peanut butter with the frosting and then topped it. It was pretty good! Next time I would do a bit more peanut butter.
Or you could try to drizzle a layer of caramel syrup on before putting on frosting. Or you could put some candy or baking chips (I’m thinking peanut butter chips, Andes mints or Rolo’s) in the cake batter before you bake it. Or spread some peanut butter or cream cheese through the cake batter pre-baking. The possibilities are endless! What do you suggest for adding some zing to chocolate cake?
