For my friends......

Debbie, this one is for you!
Most of us suffer bouts of craving for chocolate....many, like myself, on a daily basis. We all know the benefits of dark chocolate. It is all the rave. That is why I eat so many Junior Mints...because of the health benefits of dark chocolate.
But did you know that the BEST and healthiest chocolate is actually unsweetened cocoa powder? Like Hershey's makes for baking. It has even more health benefits than dark chocolate. Cornell University food scientists discovered that cocoa powder has nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine, and up to three times the antioxidants found in green tea.
So in honor of Hershey's Cocoa and for all you chocolate lovers who want to have your cake and eat it too, here is my favorite quick and easy cake recipe that is delicious.
Cake:
One box Duncan Hines Swiss Cake Mix. Mix as per box instructions and add 1 tsp. cinnamon. It really changes the flavor and is delicious. Once cake cools, make the frosting:
Frosting:
1 Box 10x sugar
5 tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa Powder
1 stick softened butter (I use Parkay, but different butters will change the flavor)
4-5 tsp of milk (mix to your desired consistency)
1 tsp vanilla
Beat until smooth, frost cake, eat, enjoy and stay healthy.
