How to make Copycat Little Debbie Chocolate Chip Cakes:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Mix in eggs, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla. Mix in boiling water until combined and super smooth.
Lay parchment paper onto two 14.75″ x 10.5″ rimmed baking sheets.
Pour four cups of batter onto each sheet and spread out.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Let cakes cool completely.
Carefully cut out 3×3 inch squares of each cake layer. Set cakes aside.
In a bowl, mix with an electric mixer, marshmallow fluff and powdered sugar until combined and thick.
Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of marshmallow filling on top center of half of the cake squares. Marshmallow filling will spread out a bit so don’t over fill.
Place the other half of cake squares on top to create sandwich cakes.
Place stacked cakes into freezer for at least 1 hour.
Melt white almond bark according to package directions.
Add coconut oil into melted almond bark and stir until smooth.
Place 1 cold cake sandwich onto a spatula, hold cake over white chocolate bowl and spoon melted white chocolate over cake tops and sides.
Place covered cake onto a piece of parchment paper and sprinkle on a few mini chocolate chips.
Repeat with remaining cakes.
Let cakes sit for 30 minutes for coating to harden.
***Don’t worry if bits of cake fall into the white chocolate because the original Little Debbie Cakes have bits of cake in the frosting as well***
