A simple chocolate cake gets added snack appeal from bat-shaped sugar cookies.
For this dessert, you'll need a box of Betty Crocker Super Moist German Chocolate cake mix, which chef Mary Maher enhances with a couple of choice ingredients. To add flavor and moistness, replace the 1 1/3 cup water the recipe calls for with the same amount of grade-A dark maple syrup, and swap the 1/2 cup oil with an equal portion of pumpkin pie filling.
When it comes to frosting, Maher recommends Duncan Hines Classic Vanilla and Classic Dark-Chocolate Fudge flavors. To make the frosting silky and easier to spread on the cake, she suggests fluffing it for 15 seconds with a hand mixer.
