For our own valentines celebrations, I have been playing with different ideas for yummy cakes and goodies. This is one that I whipped up last night, thanks to some prodding and motivation by one very hungry little girl with cake mix in hand.
To make this super-decadent chocolate cake for two I prepared the cake mix as described on the package, and then poured into 4 mini bundt cake pans (it probably could have made 6, no problem). If you dont have mini bundt cake pans, cupcake pans will work also for single servings - just fill them halfway with mix so that they dont form a big cusp at the top). When the cakes were finished baking according to package directions, I flipped them upside down onto dessert plates. Then I used a little bit of whipped cream in the can, and made a small whipped cream border, and filling in the center cavity. Then I sprinkled semi-sweet chocolate chunks on the whipped cream and called it done.
For variations you could drizzle melted chocolate, crushed nuts, cherry pie filling, or melted frosting over the top. You could also top with one marachino cherry or a slice of fresh strawberry for a tasty and colorful touch without much added work.
Enjoy! And dont forget to comment to be entered for the drawing! :)
