Ingredients

1 1/2 tsp
almond extract
18 1/2oz pkg
yellow cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
1 tsp
red food color
1 tsp
green food color
1 tsp
yellow food color
12oz jar(s)
raspberry or strawberry jam, melted
1 c
(6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat 3 separate 9"x13" baking dishes with cooking spray, line with wax paper and coat again with cooking spray. Stir almond extract into cake batter and divide batter evenly into 3 small bowls.

2Stir red food color into one bowl,green food color into another bowl,and yellow food color into third bowl. Pour each color batter into a separate baking dish and spread evenly. The layer of batter will be very thin,that's okay.

3Let cool completely. Place red layer top side down on a cutting board and remove wax paper. Spread half of raspberry jam evenly over top, then place yellow cake layer top side down over jam.

4Place green cake layer on top,leaving wax paper in place. Place a baking sheet on top to gently press the layers together. Chill 1 hour then remove from refrigerator and remove wax paper. Spread a thin layer of melted chocolate over top and allow to harden slightly. Cut into 1"x2" cookies and serve,or cover and chill until ready to serve.
