I made ring dings (but I really made a mess)

Rob requested Ring Dings, a throwback sort of treat. I am not sure if they are made by Hostess or Drake’s. They are a chocolate cake round with marshmallow creme filling and topped with a chocolate coating. Rob asked if I could do a peanut butter filling as well, so I did both. Instead of filling the treats, I split them horizontally, filled them and then topped them with melted chocolate. I made quite a mess, with the chocolate cake recipe I used for the marshmallow filled ones, but think people at work will stillfind them delicious! IbI used the king arthur flour flourless cake recipe for the peanut butter filled ones. That actually worked much better with slicing and filling. Next time, I will just bake a cake or cupcakes.😊
