Chocolate Strawberry Layer Cake!

Posted on

Chocolate Strawberry layer cake
Such an easy and refreshing dessert!  If you need something beautiful but quick, this is your recipe!

INGREDIENTS:

  • One boxed chocolate cake mix (with water, oil and eggs to make according to package)
  • One (8 oz) container of Cool Whip
  • One (7 oz) container of Jet Puffed Marshmallow fluff
  • One tub of ready-made chocolate frosting
  • About 25 ripe strawberries.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Make cake according to box and bake in 2-  8 or 9 inch round pans.
  • Cool cakes, trim off tops to level each cake and cut each cake into two layers
  • Mix Cool Whip and marshmallow fluff together until smooth.
  • Spoon frosting into bowl and heat for about 30 seconds in microwave.  Stir.  It should be a hot fudge consistency.
  • Wash and slice strawberries lengthwise (I used an egg slicer to make this easier).

  • Place strawberries along the edge with points facing out.  Use small pieces to fill in the middle.
