Kit Kat-Filled Angel Food Cake

Yep, you read that right: Kit Kat cake. This dessert takes two favorites to create a semi-homemade mash-up that’s ready in 15 minutes flat. The secret? We started with a store-bought (or pre-made, if you go that route) 9-ounce angel food cake. Simply slice the finished, cooled cake in half horizontally and create a small hollowed-out area in the middle, which you’ll spread with a filling of chopped Kit Kat bars and homemade whipped cream. Replace the top layer of cake, dust it with cocoa powder, and you’re ready to slice and serve. Save this recipe for anytime you need an impressive (but easy) cake.
