Here's a quick and easy recipe from Kraft Foods for Chocolate Tres Leches Cake ("Three Milks Cake" in Spanish) for you to make when you want something alittle different than the traditional Tres Leches Cake. Melted chocolate is mixed with the "three milks" soaking liquid and then poured over the cake. Then the cake is topped with non-dairy whipped topping and garnished with chocolate curls. What a wonderful treat. Enjoy this anytime of the year or why not try it for your next Cinco de Mayo dessert.

1 package (2-layer size) white cake mix
4 squares (4 ounces) semi-sweet baking chocolate, divided
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed

Prepare cake batter and bake in 9 x 13-inch baking pan as directed on package. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes. Pierce cake with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals.

Melt 3 of the chocolate squares (3 ounces) as directed on package; set aside. Place milks and sour cream in blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. Add melted chocolate; blend until smooth. Carefully pour over cake, piercing cake as needed until milk mixture is absorbed. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Make curls or shavings with remaining chocolate square. Frost top of cake with whipped topping; top with chocolate curls. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.

Makes 16 servings.

How To Make Chocolate Curls
Place unwrapped chocolate square in small microwaveable bowl, then microwave on HIGH 20 seconds. To make curls, press a vegetable peeler firmly across chocolate to form small curls. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, microwave a few more seconds). Peel curls directly onto dessert. Or, peel onto a wax paper-covered tray and use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert.
