This HERSHEY’S KISSES Bundt Cake is an extremely moist cake loaded with HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates inside. It is finished off with a thick cream cheese frosting which compliments the flavor perfectly!
I am so excited to be working with The Hershey Company again.
The HERSHEY’S Brand has always been a part of my life, particularly HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates. My grandma always had them sitting in a bowl on her entryway table and I remember sneaking way more than my fair share starting at an early age. Chocolate has always been my go-to treat and the silkiness of HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates milk chocolate really hits the spot!
My kids are no different! They LOVE chocolate and I often discover that they have found my hidden stash somewhere :) My daughter is a girl after my own heart and requested we make a chocolate cake for her birthday last month.
She loves to help me bake and couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen with me to make her this beautiful cake! The ingredient list is super simple and uses ingredients you probably have in your pantry already.
Baking is huge passion of mine and any opportunity I am able to bake with my kids is a cherished time in my life. Seeing my children’s face light up when they create something in the kitchen is priceless.
We had this cake for her birthday party with our family and she was ecstatic to get to eat it!
This cake is so moist and packed with chocolate in every bite.
A little secret my mom taught me- if you want an EXTRA moist cake, after the cake has cooled completely, wrap the cake completely in plastic and let it sit like that for a few hours until you are ready to frost. Trust me, this little trick is life changing and you won’t believe the difference! ;)
The Cream Cheese Frosting on top really takes this cake over the top and is the perfect finishing touch and the HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates really add a nice hidden bite of extra chocolate in little pockets throughout the cake.
