Hostess Choco-Bliss, the home game

Remember when Hostess had a product called Choco-Bliss? It consisted of chocolate, layered with chocolate, frosted with chocolate, and probably dipped in chocolate...

Anyway, King Arthur Flour has a recipe for a cake that really does seem to resemble the now-longer-available Choco-Bliss. Their step by step photos make it look kind of difficult, but I don't really think it is.

King Arthur's blog also has replica recipes for Drake's Funny Bones (not sold in the Midwest when I was growing up, but they look pretty good...chocolate cake with a peanut-butter filling) and Twinkies.

We call this "Mousse Cake"

Bake a boxed chocolate cake in two round pans. I use a 10" springform because it makes the layers thinner, but it doesn't really matter. Make a box of instant chocolate mousse. It's very yummy--tastes NOTHING like instant pudding, don't worry. Fill your cake with the mousse.

Ice with the shiny icing from the King Arthur site, or if you're feeling lazy, use some mousse to ice the cake, too. Melt some chocolate chips and drizzle across the top of the cake. Serve with whipped cream.

so... not being much of a handy-man in the culinary arts, the question is 'how do I talk my wife into making this for me?' It looks inCREDibly delicious!
