This is one of my favorite cakes to make. Not only is it easy, but it's fun and oh so delicious. It's one of the few times I really insist on using a box cake mix. I just don't want to mess up the fun of this cake with extra work. I used to make this when my kids were too little to appreciate it. Now, they love to jump in a help decorate, and to lick the spoons, of course!
1 box moist chocolate cake mix
1 large container of Cool Whip
1 bag coconut
Jelly beans (Jolly Ranger brand is fantastic)
licorice for the whiskers
Follow these instructions:
