Recipe by Danny Beason

One of the first things I ever bake on my own, I got the recipe off a cake mix box.

My mom used to make this every summer. It's really rich, so a little serving goes a long way. I prefer to cool it completely, then cover it and put it in the refrigerator. Before serving, I sometimes top with Cool Whip or Redi Whip. Great to take to get-togethers, this is something most people haven't heard of. Also, the crater appearance is why it's called a Wasp's Nest, the morsels make it look kind of like a hive. With the whipped topping the cake is almost the height a a risen cake.
