5 Year Blog Anniversary

I can not believe that today is 5 years that I’ve been blogging. These 5 years have flown by so quickly. That also means that Little Man is almost 6! Before I move on in this post, I just want to say THANK YOU to my loyal readers and PR, you have made this past 5 years rock! As a way to celebrate my 5 year blog anniversary I made a cake. It’s not just any regular cake, though. This cake has Dark Chocolate Cherry Nestle Toll House Delightfulls and a cherry cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate Cherry Cake

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen DelightFulls on my blog. I made a caramel swirl ice cream that also featured them back when I first saw them on the shelf. That ice cream was a HUGE hit. The kids still ask for me to make it again. I have an extra bag of caramel DelightFulls, but do not have the ice cream cones to get it done.

Cherry Cream Cheese Frosting

Yes, you heard that right, I made Cherry Cream Cheese Frosting to compliment the Dark Chocolate Cherry Delightfulls that I used. It only has a hint of cherry to it, but I think it worked great with the cake I used. I used a rich chocolate cake box mix from Meijer and added in the Dark Chocolate Chips, so I think it really needed something cool and creamy to balance it all out.

  1. oh, my! that is one delicious sounding cake. When you figure out how to make it sugarless, wheatless, carbless, and calorie-less let me know!

  2. These look so good! I keep eyeing them at the store, but wasn’t sure if they would taste as good as they look! Now I have to get some.
