Plant a delicious surprise on your guests with these springtime delights. Our chocolate cakes, baked in small pots, create the illusion of new growth. Each cake is topped with a creamy layer of chocolate frosting, a smattering of crushed cookies and candy "rocks," and a fresh sprig of mint.
We used six unglazed, untreated terra-cotta flowerpots (each with a six-ounce capacity, about 2 3/4 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches across the top). To make smaller cakes, use 9 four-ounce terra-cotta pots. Thoroughly wash the new pots in hot water before using.
