Mounds Cake recipe combines a rich chocolate cake with a creamy coconut filling, all covered with a smooth chocolate frosting to finish. Easy to make completely from scratch, it takes just like the classic Mounds candy bar! Our easy chocolate Mounds Cake recipe is made completely from scratch (not that there’s anything wrong with cake mix shortcuts), because it most closely resembles the dark chocolate flavor found in the original Mounds candy bar.

And while you can use your favorite cake mixes to make your Mounds layer cake, it won’t save you much prep time so you may as well follow my simple scratch version instead.

The cakes bake soft and moist and are sliced into four horizontal halfs; and just like the middle of a Mounds bar, the coconut filling is sweet and gooey with the perfect consistency for spreading between the cake layers.

Cover your cake with chocolate frosting and add some sliced almonds to make it taste just like an Almond Joy – a chocolate cake with coconut cream filling is the perfect dessert for curing a candy bar craving.
I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.

This is an incredible cake. I got this recipe from my neighbor who made this at our last block party. She made 4 of these and there was not a crumb left in sight. Everyone went ga-ga over this one. Enjoy.
