Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Chocolate Toffee Cream Cake

I think we should reward ourselves with chocolate when we get to the end of a week!  Pat yourself on the back for all you accomplished, take a little break, and have some chocolate with me!

Do you remember my Chocri post?  Well, they have now officially launched in the U.S.!  Woo Hoo!  Stop by to customize a chocolate bar for a special Valentine's gift.  They do have Valentine's Day packaging available, but remember that you need to place Valentine orders on or before Feb. 1 ('cause those babies are hand-made and shipped to you from Germany!).  And you'll want to become a Chocri facebook fan if you haven't yet, because when they hit 2000 fans, then all 2000 will receive a $10 gift code!!

But now - on to a chocolate recipe!  I'm repeating a recipe for you today because I think you need an easy one after the holidays.  This is a recipe that even you non-baking busy moms can handle.  Everybody will like this one!

Chocolate Toffee Cream Cake (from Duncan Hines)

1 pkg. Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 (6 oz.) pkg. milk chocolate English toffee bits, divided
1 (12 oz) container extra creamy non-dairy whipped topping, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-in. round cake pans.

Blend cake mix, eggs, water and oil in large mixing bowl until moistened. Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 4 min. Pour into prepared pans. Bake 30-33 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 15 min. Remove from pans. Cool completely. Reserve 1/4 cup toffee bits; fold remaining bits into whipped topping. Place one cake layer on serving plate; spread with 3/4 cup topping mixture. Top with remaining layer. Frost sides and top with remaining topping mixture; garnish with reserved chips. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you prefer to make things from scratch, just make a dark chocolate cake, some homemade whipped cream with toffee bits added and you're good to go!

Moist, rich, delicious, pretty, but best yet - easy!  Anybody can make this one!

Now it's your turn to share the chocolate!  I know, yes that's right, I KNOW you've got a chocolate post somewhere - old or new - that you can link up today!  Let's see how many we can get.  Spread the word and if you see something chocolatey out in the blogosphere, please send the blogger this way.

I'm linking this up to the Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap - check out all the recipes!  Also linking to Tasty Tuesday at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam!

Happy Chocolate Friday!
