There's just something about the holiday season that makes you want to bake the perfect dessert, right? Unfortunately, our to-do lists this time of year are also jam-packed, leaving less time for baking sessions than we'd like. Luckily for you, this semi-homemade candy cane chocolate cake is easy to put together, but looks (and tastes!) like you spent all day in the kitchen. It starts with an easy boxed cake mix, but the homemade frosting and the addition of HERSHEY'S KISSES Candy Cane candies give it that special seasonal touch you desire.
To make the frosting
To assemble the cake
Crush or chop half of your bag of HERSHEY’S KISSES Candy Cane candies. Set it aside. Level all 4 cakes so each cake is flat on both sides.
Place your first layer onto a cake stand or tray and pipe red frosting in a circle on top of the layer of cake, leaving 1/4-inch of cake unfrosted around the edge.
Sprinkle 1/3 of your crushed or chopped HERSHEY'S KISSES Candy Cane candies on top of the frosted area of cake.
Repeat layering, frosting and sprinkling process 2 additional times, creating 2 more cake layers.
Place the final layer of cake on top and cover entire top of that layer with white frosting and smooth it with a spatula.
Pipe 7 dollops of red frosting onto the outer edge of white frosting and add one HERSHEY’S KISSES Candy Cane candies on top of each dollop.
