Nutella S'mores Chocolate Cake for 4th of July

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!  Ours was filled with time at various pools and BBQ's with friends.  I can't believe it's Sunday night already and I have so many recipes to share!  Tonight, we start with dessert... because we all know that is the reason we workout and eat our veggies... just to get to dessert!


Nutella s'mores chocolate cake

I've seen so many s'mores dessert recipes that I just had to make my own version to share at a 4th of July BBQ we went to at our neighbor's house.

As I was thinking of ideas and while I was shopping for ingredients, I decided it couldn't just be s'mores... so I decided Nutella had to be part of the picture as well!

What I came up with was a dressed up chocolate cake.  You can use your favorite chocolate cake recipe and make it in two 9-inch round cake pans so that you can have the s'mores layer that truly makes this cake special.

The frosting is a combination of cream cheese, nutella, marshmallow fluff and butter... so, let's just not think about the calorie count on this one... ok?  It's about indulging when you taste this cake, so you have to go 'all in' if you are going to go at all.

So, next time you are headed to a BBQ or just want to share a really indulgent dessert, dress up your favorite chocolate cake with this frosting!
