  • Serves: 12
  • PREP TIME: 30 min
  • COOK TIME: 50 min
  • Chill Time 15 min

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18 oz.) chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 pieces thick black licorice twists
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (4 oz.), melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sprinkles
  • 1 can (16 oz.) dark chocolate frosting
  • Creepy Crawler Garnishes*

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and lightly flour 2 (1-1/2-qt.) oven-proof glass bowls; set aside.
  2. Beat cake mix, Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, water, and eggs 30 seconds in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed. Beat on medium speed, scraping sides occasionally, 2 minutes. Pour into prepared bowls.
  3. Bake 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack; remove from bowls and cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, dip licorice into melted chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate, then dip into sprinkles. Place on waxed paper and chill 15 minutes or until firm.
  5. Trim flat sides of cakes to make even. Arrange 1 cake, flat side up, on serving platter. Spread with 1/2 cup frosting. Top with remaining cake, flat side down. Frost with remaining frosting.
  6. Insert licorice into cake, bending to form legs.

*For Creepy Crawler Garnishes, use 2 chocolate sandwich cookies cut in half for eyes, and 2 red mini candy-covered chocolates for pupils. Shape red fruit leather to form a mouth and use 2 candy corns as teeth.
