Marshmallow Peeps Sunflower Cake
One box chocolate cake mix
Chocolate frosting (recipe below)
12 yellow Marshmallow Peeps
Two 8-inch cake pans
1/2 bag mini chocolate chips
Marshmallow Peeps Sunflower Cake Frosting:
3/4 C. butter
2 C. powdered sugar
1 C. chocolate syrup
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
3 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Bake the chocolate cake in two 8″ rounds according to package directions (I dust my cake pans with flour so the cake is easily removed). Cool completely.
Slice the rounded part of the cakes off with a bread knife to give them a flat surface. Frost the bottom layer with frosting. Add the top layer and frost the entire cake. Arrange the Marshmallow Peeps around the perimeter of the cake. In the center, sprinkle the mini chocolate chips.
