I added little chocolate chips to the mix for added pockets of melty chocolate goodness.

And a few small scoops of chocolate brownie ice cream and red sugar sprinkles. Of course, vanilla ice cream or cool whip would suffice!

  1. Jeff N says:

    I made it. I find some recipes need a little longer so I added 3 mins.

    As far as being a cake. This is my only fail out of hundreds of recipes. Once cooled it was mush. More if a pudding

    As far as being a mush/pudding. It was quite sweet and tasty with a dollup of buttercream icing.1 star
