My husband’s favorite dessert is anything chocolate. Although we are committed to a healthy eating lifestyle, we do splurge on holidays. This year for Father’s Day I made my husband a Chocolate Mound Cake, and he said it was the best cake I’ve ever made. I usually like to prepare our food from scratch, but I took the easy way out and used a cake mix. Even though my morning sickness is getting better, it still hits every day, so this momma needed an easy solution. This Chocolate Mound Cake got such rave reviews from my husband and kids I thought I’d share with you.
