    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 ounce) box white cake mix
    • 1 1/3 cups water
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 (1/8 ounce) packet watermelon cherry Kool-Aid
    • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chip, plus
    • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (the regular ones are too big)
    • 1 (12 ounce) container whipped vanilla frosting
    • 2/3 cup watermellon jelly beans (I use Jelly Belly)
    • 10 -20 drops green food coloring
    • 10 -20 drops red food coloring

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottoms only of 2-8 or 9-inch round cake pans.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, beat cake mix, oil, water, eggs, and kool-aid together on low for 30 seconds, 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in 1/2 cup of the mini chocolate chips and divide the batter between the two pans.
    3. 3
      Bake about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pans, then remove to wire racks to cool completely, 1 hour.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, stir 1 cup of frosting with the green food coloring. Color the remaining frosting with the red food coloring.
    5. 5
      Frost the sides of the cake with the green frosting and the top with the red. Press the jelly beans into the sides of the cake and the 2 tablespoons chocolate chips on the top.
