Cherie Capostagno Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

Chocolate cake mix enhanced with dark chocolate cocoa powder, white and semi sweet chocolate chips and topped with frosting made from cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter, swirled over a cone out and frosting filled cupcake center. Decoration? A honey roasted sugared peanut. I had never made this combination of flavors before a co-worker suggested it for her birthday. It's fabulous!

Tips

Filled Layered Devils Food Pound Cake

Filled Layered Devils Food Pound Cake

Make Devils Food Pound cake as directed, except do a layer cake filled with Chocolate Mousse and frosted with a Fluffy White Frosting. Or this one is my favorite, again bake Devils Food Pound Cake as layers, fill with Cherry Pie Filling, reserve a third. On the top of the cake, in the center, place the remaining Cherry Pie Filling. Frost the sides with a fluffy white frosting around the cherry filling. Then crush in a food processor thin chocolate wafers, sprinkle on top of frosted cake

low fat/weight watchers

Any of the duncan hines cake mixes can be made low fat by substituting one can of diet soda (your choice of flavors) with the dry cake mix. Bakes up great and taste wonderful! Add a frosting of fat free/no sugar cool whip on top....enjoy...
