If you love chocolate cake, you're gonna want to make a batch of these sweet treats!
These rich chocolate cakes are filled with marshmallow cream frosting and served in mini glass jars with tiny spoons attached with pretty ribbons. They’re the perfect size dessert for a party or a bake sale!
Every bite tastes like a little bit of heaven.
The cakes are super easy to make using a Betty Crocker™ Devil's Food Cake Mix. To make the cake batter extra chocolatey, add 4 ounces of melted chocolate after you've mixed the batter according to the package instructions.
Divide the batter among 16 half-pint size jars.
Set the jars on a towel-lined baking pan, set the pan on the middle rack in the oven, and pour in some boiling water to create a water bath. Be careful you don't spill any water into the cakes! The water bath will help keep the cakes really moist.
Bake the cakes for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean. Remove the cakes from water bath and allow to cool completely. Trim off the domed tops from each cake.
Remove a core from the center of each cake using a cupcake corer or a knife.
Then, make the marshmallow cream frosting and spoon some of it into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
Pipe some frosting into the center of each cake and then create a nice big swirl on top.
To dress up your mini jars, use double-sided tape to attach a cute ribbon around the top lip of the jar. Leave a small opening in the taped area so you can insert a spoon between the ribbon and the jar. Your sweet little desserts are now ready to serve.
