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
  • 1 1/4 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
  • 3/4 cup halved red candied cherries, for garnish

What to Do

  1. 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.
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. Spread whipped topping on sides of cake so that it meets filling on top of cake. Garnish by placing cherry halves around cake edge.

our Entennmans outlet said they stopped making them years ago but Food Lion around here sells something similar and almost as good.

What is a Louisiana Crunch Cake ?????????????

what *is* a Louisiana Crunch Cake, and where do I find one?

It's made by Entennman's (sp?) in the Philly/South Jersey area. You can get one at some grocery stores or an Entennman's outlet (there's one in Blackwood, NJ). They're really good!

a sour cream cake with toasted coconut sprinkled on top before baking, Kroger food stores carry both a Louisiana Crunch and the Sock it to Me cakes
