Your holiday gathering will be extra special and extra easy, when you start with a store-bought cake and fancy it up with your own homemade frosting and garnishes. Our Christmas Crunch Cake will do you proud!
What You'll Need:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
cups confectioners' sugar
1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 (8-ounce) container or 1 cup finely chopped red candied cherries
1 Louisiana or other ring crunch cake
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
cup halved red candied cherries, for garnish
What To Do:
- In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in ricotta cheese until well blended, then fold in chocolate chips and chopped cherries. Chill mixture overnight, so it achieves the proper firm spreading consistency.
- The next day, carefully cut cake horizontally, making three layers. Set bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread 1/3 of chilled mixture on top of bottom layer, then add next cake layer and repeat until top of cake is covered but sides are not.
- Spread whipped topping on sides of cake so that it meets filling on top of cake. Garnish by placing cherry halves around cake edge.
