The Worlds Best Chocolate Cake
This decadent Chocolate Rice Krispies Crunch Cake recipe is a tri-layered fudgy chocolate cake that's filled with chocolate-coated Rice Krispies and slathered with creamy, smooth chocolate frosting.


Chocolate Cake Recipe
¾ cup semi sweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup cocoa powder
1½ cups boiling water
2½ cups + 2 tbsp flour
3 cups sugar
3 tsp baking soda
tsp baking powder
tsp kosher salt
1½ cups buttermilk
¾ cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract 
Milk Chocolate Rice Krispies Crunch
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
2½ cups milk chocolate chips, melted
Creamy Chocolate Frosting
1 cup butter, softened
8 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
6 cups icing sugar
¾ cup whole milk


1) For the cake, preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat three 9-inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of each pan with parchment paper and lightly spray again. Dust the pans with flour, shaking out the excess. 
2) In a medium bowl, whisk together semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder, and boiling water, whisk until smooth. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a third bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. 
3) Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture. Add the melted chocolate mixture and continue to whisk until all ingredients are well combined. Pour batter into cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cakes completely before frosting.
4) For the Rice Krispies Crunch, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine Rice Krispies and melted chocolate and fold together until cereal is completely coated. Evenly spread mixture onto the baking sheet and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and chop into small pieces. Can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to use. 
5) For the frosting, using an electric mixer, beat butter, melted chocolate, icing sugar, and milk on low speed. Gradually increase speed to medium until frosting is fluffy. 
6) To assemble the cake, place one 9-inch chocolate cake on a large plate, trim top to make it even and flat all over. Spread ¾ cup frosting on top and cover with 1 heaping cup of Krispies Crunch. Top with another 9-inch cake and repeat with frosting and crunch. Top with the final cake and frost. Cover the top of the cake with remaining crunch. 
(Serves 10-12)

The Top 7 Spices Every Kitchen Must Have

Top 7 Spices Every Kitchen Must Have

Want to be a Spice Girl in the kitchen, but don’t revel the thought of sporting Union Jack short shorts?

Fear not, us spicy sisters here at Bite Me More are here to help you spice up your cooking in a few simple steps. With a pinch of this and a dash of that, you can elevate your food from ho-hum to oh-yum.

What every kitchen needs is a well-stocked spice rack. Does that sound overwhelming to you? It isn’t. With just these seven spices, you’ll be perfectly equipped to make the ordinary, extraordinary in all you cook up. You'll also have everything you need to make meal planning fast, easy, and delicious.

Here are the 7 Wonders of the Spice World:

1. Coarse Ground Black Pepper

Really, what’s salt without pepper? We add a pinch of this top-notch course ground black pepper to almost every type of food.

2. Italian Seasoning

This superb Italian seasoning is a simple way to brighten up the flavour of pasta dishes, pizza and is also an easy way to season chicken or meat.

3. Ground Cinnamon

Cinnamon used in both sweet (pies, cookies and cakes) and savoury (spice rubs, sauces and marinades) dishes, adds an unmistakable fragrance, sweetness and warmth to all, including can’t-be-beat cinnamon toast.

4. Ground Cumin

Most often used in Mexican, Moroccan, and Indian cooking, ground cumin is a simple way to add both a rich aroma and a spicy punch to your cooking.

5. Paprika

Not just for deviled eggs, paprika, a bright red powder, is best used to bring a distinct flavour of ground sweet red chili peppers to stews, soups, and many meat dishes.

6. Chili Powder

Chili powder serves up some spice to Mexican cooking, and can also kick up your tomato sauce, beef rubs, Indian dishes and even chocolate recipes.

7. Ground Ginger

Ground ginger brings a warmth and spice to everything from ginger cookies to cake, dressings to vegetables, and Asian to Indian cooking.

On that note, we’re so excited to have put ground ginger, along with full-flavoured Club House Shepherd’s Pie Seasoning Mix, essential course ground black pepper, and the super convenient minced garlic to the test with these fast, easy, and delicious Asian Lettuce Wraps.

Not only does this quick and simple recipe serve up fresh vegetables and spiced ground chicken you can hold in the palm of your hand, but it’s also a healthy choice for a weeknight family meal.

What are you waiting for? Spice up your kitchen routine in less than 30 minutes with these delicious wraps.

  Recipe notes:

  1. These Asian Lettuce Wraps also work as a great appetizer.
  2. The Asian filling would also be great rolled in tortillas, put on top of a salad or used to make eggrolls or dumplings.
  3. You can substitute ground turkey, ground pork or ground beef for the ground chicken.
  4. To make meal prep time faster, wash and cut vegetables in advance and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
