Need I say more?

I know this is not Salesforce related, and not even technology related (other than oven usage), but it definitely falls into the more category and it’s part of my playground and so delish, I couldn’t resist sharing!

I discovered this recipe at a relative’s home and instantly loved the variety of flavor and the ease of make yet decorative appearance. Baking it myself reinforced my feelings towards it and made it a instant hit in my home.

Ingredients:

4 Eggs
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 T. Vanilla Sugar
1 C. Oil
4 T. Cocoa
1 1/2 C. Flour
1 t. Baking Powder

Topping:

16 Oz. Marshmallow Cream
12 Oz. Baking Chocolate
1 1/2 C. Crunch Peanut Butter
3 1/2 C Rice Krispies

Directions:

Beat eggs with sugars. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool.

Spread thin layer of marshmallow cream onto cake and then refrigerate for 1 hour. In double broiler, melt chocolate and peanut butter. Remove from heat and add rice krispies, mixing until completely coated. Spread topping over cake. Chill. Cut into circles or squares.

**Personally, I am not exact on the measurements of the topping. I simply spread the marshmallow cream until there seems to be a sufficient amount. The rest of the topping has yet to fail me if I don’t measure it perfectly.**

THIS CAKE FREEZES AMAZINGLY WELL. I LIKE TO BAKE A FEW BATCHES OF IT, FREEZE IT FOR AN HOUR OR SO AND THEN CUT INTO (SMALL) PIECES. THEN, I PUT IT BACK IN THE FREEZER, READY TO TAKE OUT ON SHORT NOTICE. IT IS DEFINITELY IMPRESSIVE AND GREAT TO GIFT TO OTHERS.
