Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Beat first 5 ingredients with mixer until blended; pour into 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Invert cake onto cake board or tray. Frost with COOL WHIP.
  • Melt chocolates (separately) as directed on packages; spoon into separate resealable plastic bags. Use felt marker to draw 7x5-inch skull shape on piece of paper; tape onto piece of cardboard. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag filled with semi-sweet chocolate; use to trace around skull pattern, then fill in skull with remaining semi-sweet chocolate. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm. Remove plastic wrap and chocolate skull from cardboard; invert skull onto center of cake. Discard plastic wrap. Cut small piece off bottom of bag filled with white chocolate; use to draw the skull's face as shown in photo.
  • Use kitchen shears to cut each large marshmallow crosswise into 5 pieces; dip cut sides in colored sugars. Decorate cake with marshmallow flowers, pressing 5 marshmallow pieces, cut sides up, together to make each flower. Sprinkle remaining colored sugars onto centers of flowers. Keep refrigerated.

How to Easily Cut the Marshmallows

Use clean kitchen shears to cut marshmallows into pieces as directed, dipping shears in warm water and wiping dry with paper towel between cuts to prevent sticking.
