Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses ~
Preheat Oven to 325 and spray the cake pans heavily with non stick spray with flour.
In a mixing bowl add the red velvet cake mix and the instant chocolate pudding mix, stir together.
Add 3 extra large eggs, 1/4 cup of Hershey's syrup, 1 cup of water, 1/3 cup of corn oil.
Mix slowly to incorporate, then stir on medium for 2 minutes.
Take a two inch ice cream scoop, fill to slightly over level, release into one rose cavity, repeat. This batter will make up two Nordic Ware Sweet Heart Cake pans. (24 individual roses)
Place pan on the middle rack and bake until a tooth pick comes out cleanly. Bake for 19-20 minutes. Do Not over bake.
Let sit for 5 minutes and then invert onto racks until cooled.
Make sure to clean the pans in hot soapy water until all residue is gone, then rinse well and then dry. This will insure that your roses won't stick the next time that you use the pans.
Try these, they are easy and delicious. Great for the Kentucky Derby or anytime!
