With fluff and cookie dough filling

When I asked Rob what dessert he wanted to celebrate our 19th anniversary, he requested a chocolate cake with a fluff filling and topped with melted chocolate. So a ding dong, big wheels, Suzy q type of treat! I made individual treats and made a variety of fillings – fluff, peanut butter and cookie dough. You can make a homemade chocolate cake in a 13×9 pan, or use a cake mix (like I did). I also recommend cutting the cooled cake into rectangles. Circles are harder to slice horizontally. The main recipe has the fluff filling. The peanut butter and cookie dough fillings recipes are at the end of the post

  • Ingredients
