Chocolate Coated Party Cakes for Mother's Day
Chocolate-Coated Party Cakes
1 package Duncan Hines Deluxe II Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 container (8 oz.) thawed frozen whipped dessert topping
Chocolate Glaze: 4 squares (4 oz.) semisweet chocolate, 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
Mix and bake cupcakes in paper-lined muffin cups as directed on package. Cool and remove cakes from paper liners. Cut a thin slice from bottom of each cake and carefully hollow out the cake. Fill with 2 teaspoons whipped topping and replace cake slice.
For Chocolate Glaze, partially melt semisweet chocolate and butter over simmering water. Remove from water and stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool slightly before using. Spoon glaze over tops of cakes and allow glaze to set slightly before decorating.
