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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat 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.
2
Stir 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.
3
Let 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.
4
Place 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.
