Easy and Irresistible Chocolate Cream Stacks Recipe Is Perfect for any Celebration

White chocolate makes these individual treats even richer.

There’s nothing more satisfying than a decadent dessert to finish off a great meal. And one of my favorites is chocolate layer cake. What could be better than that? How about having an entire cake just for yourself? That’s why we came up with these fun individual-sized Chocolate Cream Stacks recipe.

Mini cake stacks are super-easy to put together. We started with convenient cake mix, but to give it an unexpected flavor twist, we stirred in fruity jam — we like to use raspberry, which is a tasty complement to the chocolate, but you can swap in whichever flavor you prefer. Then we layered it with an easy 3-ingredient frosting comes together in minutes. For the finish, top with white chocolate shavings and fresh raspberries. Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
