  • 1 C flour
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 C cocoa powder
  • 2/3 C milk
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • hand full of chocolate chips
  • 1 C heavy cream, whipped
  • 2 cups mixed berries, cut up
  • sprinkles
  • chocolate syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and cocoa powder in a bowl. Add in the milk, butter, egg and extract and mix until combined. Toss in a handful of chocolate chips.
  3. Grease and flour the 7-cup OXO SNAP container (or 1 8" cake pan). Pour the batter into the pan and add a few more chocolate chips if desired.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely before covering up.
  6. Whip your heavy cream and add 1 tsp of melted gelatin to stabilize it. Adding the gelatin to the whipped cream will help it from separating in the heat. Store it in the 2 cup SNAP container.
  7. Cup up some strawberries, cherries, raspberries and blueberries and store them in the 5 cup SNAP container.
  8. Add some chocolate syrup to the OXO salad dressing shaker and pack up your cooler!
  9. Add some sprinkles to the 1 cup SNAP container.
