Chocolate Ding Dong Cake

Just the thought of something called a Ding Dong cake gets my attention. When I found out what was in it and how easy it was, making this cake was a no brainer. I did change a few things, though. I didn't have my chocolate cake mix on hand since my daughter used it to make our anniversary cake (see post on 9/23) so I substituted 1 box of yellow cake batter and added 1/3 cup of cocoa. I also only used 1 box of mix instead of 2. I just didn't want a big cake. I also used buttermilk instead of oil in the cake mix. Other than that, I followed the recipe. It had more filling but that just made it more yummy! I hope you try it!

Chocolate Ding Dong Cake

2 boxes chocolate cake mix
1 c. powdered sugar
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip
2 container's of chocolate icing or any homemade chocolate icing, softened

Follow instructions on cake mix boxes and bake cakes. It will make 3 layers. Cool completely. Beat together powdered sugar, softened cream cheese and tub of Cool Whip together in a bowl. Spread between cake layers. Pour chocolate icing on top and sides of cake.
Keep cake refrigerated.

I bet my husband would love that cake and it doesn't sound too difficult to make. I'm not a chocolate fan, but he loves it.

My hubby prefers pies over cake, even on his birthday. But he did eat this cake. I was surprised!

You could always use a white or yellow batter. It wouldn't be the same but the cream filling and icing would make up for it. They are the best part anyway!
