  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs

  3. Bake, rotating baking sheets once, 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely on wire racks.
  4. Combine cream cheese and confectioners sugar in medium bowl and beat with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Reserve 3 tablespoons (45 mL).
  5. Remove paper from cake. Place 1 cake layer flat side up on serving platter. Spoon Breyers® Creamery Style™ Natural Vanilla Ice Cream onto cake and spread into an even layer to edge of cake. Place remaining cake layer flat side up on flat surface. Evenly spread cream cheese mixture on cake to edge. Place cake, cream cheese side down, on top of ice cream layer to make whoopie pie. Freeze 1 hour.
