Here's another version of the "Emergency 3,2,1...Cake!" we gave to our beloved school teachers. At around $3.50 each, we were able to give one to every teacher, including the gym, art, and music teachers. The version pictured earlier on this blog were made for our church youth group's teachers.
I added a tablespoon I picked up in a set at Dollar Tree which added, well, an extra dollar, but I felt it was important to make it easy for the teachers to get their chocolate fix. I left the rest of the set on the ring it came with and decided it would be fun to donate the (incomplete) sets to the church daycare for use in their sand boxes & colored rice bins.
The cake mix* is simple:
- 1 Box Angel Food Cake Mix
- 1 Box Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
- 1 Box (large) Chocolate Pudding Mix
After discovering it was fat-free, with just 108 calories and 2.5g total carbohydrates per serving, I decided it would be a great Christmas gift. It will make the transition from holiday gluttony to healthy New Year's resolutions a little less painful!
