My original recipe for Drunken Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake can easily be converted to non-alcoholic. Simply substitute strawberry pop or red cream soda for the sparkling beer.

This cake is so light and delicious. And the frosting... it's so good it almost didn't make it onto the cake! The combination of marshmallow cream and cream cheese make a great frosting. Yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F for metal or glass pans, 325°F for dark or coated pans.

  3. POUR batter in pan 9X13 glass dish and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. When cake is approximately 5 minutes from being done, begin the Jello mixture.
  5. Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a full boil. Add jello and mix until jello is fully dissolved.

  7. Pull cake from oven and liberally poke fork holes in cake.
  8. Pour jello mix over cake and place in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  9. After cake has fully cooled, make Chocolate Fudge Marshmallow frosting.

  14. Cut and serve.
  15. You may want to garnish with fresh strawberries dipped in white chocolate for a more elegant look when entertaining.
  16. Store leftover cake (if there is any) in a covered container in refrigerator.
