Chocolate cake from a boxed mix gets a special treatment when spread with an easy butterscotch frosting and draped with a caramel-nut topping. “I love to make this cake for guests or to take to potlucks,” writes Gloria Guadron of Washington, Indiana. “It’s easy yet looks like it took all day.”
Rich, moist and chocolaty, this scrumptious cake is very versatile. It freezes well...and the chocolate chip topping makes it easy to pack in lunches and carry along to picnics. At home, we like it topped with vanilla ice cream.
This eye-catching dessert is guaranteed to delight holiday dinner guests. Chocolate lovers will lick their lips over the yummy cocoa cake, mocha filling and frosting. For a festive touch, I garnish the log with marzipan holly leaves and berries.

I belong to a Christmas village collectors' club and we all bring a potluck dish to our monthy meetings. The cake is always a hit. It's one of my family's favorite Thanksgiving desserts, too, and disappears before the pumpkin pie does. —Debby Powers, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
Chocolate, toffee and espresso make a mouthwatering concoction in this recipe from Brenda Melancon of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The yummy sweets are perfect for any party or gathering. Make plenty, they'll go fast!
My oldest son was allergic to chocolate, so I had to find goodies to make without it. These treats filled the bill. In fact, my son is 47 now, so I’ve been making this recipe for a long time! With its great almond flavor, this snack cake is popular at bake sales.
