Cakers have a tendency to make some pretty big claims in their recipes. Often, you’ll see things like “Easiest Ever Zucchini Bread” or “Better than Sex Pudding” or “The Cheese Ball Guaranteed to Make You Friends.”
Cakers are good salespeople at the best of times but we’re also pretty competitive with one another. Think about it – there you are, all crammed into the same community cookbook. If your Tomato Soup Cake recipe isn't the easiest or best-tasting, or doesn't promise to help people win Lottario, chances are someone will pass over it and chose a recipe that does.
Anything with the words “chocolate” and “greatest” in the name deserves a whirl in my opinion so I served The Greatest Chocolate Dessert Ever to company the other night. They all agreed it was delicious. (It's the Skor bits that make your eyes roll back in your head.)
“But is this the greatest chocolate dessert ever?” I asked. Everyone, not surprisingly, said no.
Oh, well. The woman who submitted the recipe got me to make her version instead of “The Classic Chocolate Dessert” recipe that followed – which was exactly the same. “Skor” one for marketing.
1 chocolate cake mix
2 packages chocolate pudding
1 bowl of cool whip
4 Skor bars
Method: Bake cake according to recipe. Let cool. Mix pudding mix according to recipe. Smash the Skor bars into teeny pieces. Cut the cake into small pieces. Do not crumble. Place ½ cake in bottom of large bowl. Place half pudding mix on top of cake. Add ½ container of cool whip. Add 2 crumbled Skor bars. Continue to make layers. Chill for approximately 2 hours.
