Chocolate Swirl Delight

It's CHOCOLATE WEEK at The Better Baker!

"There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles." - Anonymous

All 3 recipes I'm sharing this week have been in my drafts since the end of July when I enjoyed time with two of my granddaughters here for a fun Play Date at Nana's.  It's time to share!

My granddaughters, Charlie, 12, and Chloe, 10, made this lovely dessert and then they got to take it home so I didn't get to eat any of it, but it wasn't difficult to figure it was an amazing dessert.

It is a very simple 4-ingredient recipe, but let me tell you..it's also VERY elegant.

Swiss Cake roll slices line the springform pan and then it's filled with chocolate pudding, topped with whipped topping and chocolate bits!

HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY GO WRONG???

SEE WHAT I MEAN?????

This is all there is to it....
(What sweet girls too!)

CHOCOLATE SWIRL DELIGHT
(From The Better Baker and Taste of Home)

1 pkg. (13 ozs) Swiss Cake Rolls
2-3/4 c. cold milk
2 pkg. (3.9 ozs each) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
2 c. whipped topping

Cut each cake roll into eight slices; set aside any chocolate coating that separates from rolls for garnish. Line a 9-in. springform pan with cake slices, completely covering the bottom and sides.

In a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.  Pour over cake.  Spread with whipped topping; sprinkle with any reserved chocolate coating.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. 

Yield: 12 servings

TIP:  I sprayed the springform pan with cooking spray, then lightly wiped it out with a paper towel before adding cake slices. They did not stick.

We also shaved (using a potato peeler) half a candy bar to add to the sprinkles on top.

Oh man that looks so good!! I could soooo go for that right now (at 8:20am)!!!! :) Except if I made it today, I'd eat the whole thing myself & I'm not sure I'd be able to get my dress to zip! :)
