  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, or 12 ounces semi sweet baking squares, melted and cooled
  • 6 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons almond flavored liqueur
  • 1-2 ounces strong coffee (optional)
  • Prepare cakes as directed in the Hershey's Chocolate Cake Recipe
  • For almond-flavored cheesecake, preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Line a 9-inch round baking pan (use the same size pan as the chocolate cake) with aluminum foil, letting edges of foil extend over sides of pan; lightly grease foil.
