How to Make Copycat Disneyland Darth by Chocolate Recipe
This Darth by Chocolate Recipe is made in a trifle dish. Scroll down to see how to make it in small cups like Disneyland.
RED VELVET CAKE AND DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
The bottom layer is Red Velvet cake. I started with an 8-inch piece of cardboard and cut it so that it would fit in the bottom of the dish. Then I laid it on top of the cake, cut around and placed it in the bottom.
DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE
Chocolate cake came next. Since the dish is not straight up and down the chocolate cake layer was a little bit larger then the red velvet cake. So make sure to take note and measure before cutting.
CHOCOLATE MOUSSE AND OREO COOKIES
Spread a layer of chocolate mousse over the top of the dark chocolate cake. Sprinkle crumbled Oreo cookies on top.
A thick and creamy chocolate ganache was poured over the cookies. Then the toppings, chocolate sprinkles and more crumbled Oreo Cookie Thins.
DARTH VADER TOPPER—FUN!
For fun I added a Darth Vader cake topper and a cupcake topper lightsaber. Watch the video below to hear Darth Vader!
How to Make Copycat Disneyland Darth By Chocolate in a Cup
Transforming this death by chocolate dessert into min form is easy.
• Instead of using 2 (8 inch) baking pans, use 2 (9×13 inch) baking pans.
• Once the cakes are cooled, cut small cake rounds to fit the cups (remember the cups are smaller at the bottom and get larger as you go up the cups. You’ll need two sizes of round cutters. MAKE SURE THE CAKE IS COLD BEFORE YOU CUT IT. This will help your cake stay together.
