NOT PALEO: Quick Chocolate Cake Treats

I am enjoying living the Paleo/Primal lifestyle so much more than I ever dreamed, and I am getting to the point where I feel guilty if I post a recipe that's not Paleo, but sometimes ya just have to cheat ... just a little. This recipe is NOT Paleo, but at least it's not as bad as just chowing down on a big cupcake or doughnut from your local bakery. This is a quick and easy recipe and stores easily for "emergency splurges". We have a 16 year old young man who is with us every other weekend. I always make healthy Paleo meals when he is here, but he doesn't follow the Paleo lifestyle at his mother's house, so I do what I can. I figured coming up with ideas like this will keep from having a whole cake sitting around ... Staring at me ... Tempting me ...
1 box Angel Food Cake
1 box Triple Chocolate Cake Mix (or whatever flavor you choose)
Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
(Please don't cringe ... I'm going to try to find better solutions and would GREATLY appreciate your input and suggestions!)
1. Mix both cake mixes together and store in an airtight container.
2. Put 3 tablespoons dry mixture in a coffee cup.
3. Add 2 tablespoons water.
4. Mix well and microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds.
5. Turn out onto a plate and garnish with chocolate sauce, fruit, mint ... whatever you desire.

  1. This is called 3-2-1 cake. You can mix any flavor cake mix with the angel food cake mix.
