Directions

Cake Layers: Spread 1 qt. (1 L) batter onto each of 2 parchment paper-lined half sheet pans sprayed with cooking spray (or onto 1 pan for trial recipe).

Bake according to package directions, or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool completely. Remove cakes from pans; remove parchment. Cut each cake in half.

Cream Cheese Filling: Beat butter with electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese; beat until well blended. Add sugar; mix slowly until incorporated. Increase speed and beat until well blended. Scrape down bowl. Blend in vanilla.

Assembly: Place half of the cake pieces each on a separate half-sheet pan. Spread 1.25 lb. (565 g) Cream Cheese Filling onto each cake piece, spreading evenly to edges. Cover with second cake piece. Press down lightly. Freeze 30 min.

Melt chocolate in double boiler.

Use a tall 2-inch (5 cm) cookie cutter to cut out circles of cake. Dip cakes into chocolate to completely coat. Place on parchment paper-lined sheet pans. Let stand until chocolate hardens.
