  9. Take the Chocolate Halo Top out of the freezer to soften while cake is cooling.

  10. Add 1/2 cup serving to the top of each cake, or slather liberally on one cake and stack another cake on top. (This is great for sharing with a sweetie!)

  11. Garnish with chopped chocolate and enjoy!

Note: You can use a muffin tin sprayed with non-stick spray too. Batter should make about 9-10 muffins.
