    Default Centennial Chocolate Baked Alaska

    Centennial Chocolate Baked Alaska
    1 package (about 8 oz.) yellow cake mix (1 layer size)
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup water, divided
    2 sections (1/2 oz. each) HERSHEY'S Unsweetened Chocolate Premium Baking Bar, melted
    1 egg
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    4 cups (1 qt.) strawberry ice cream, or favorite flavor
    MERINGUE (recipe follows)

    1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 8-inch round pan. In medium bowl, stir together cake mix and sugar; add 1/3 cup water, melted chocolate and egg, beating until blended. Add oil and remaining 1/4 cup water; beat until smooth and well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. Cover; freeze until firm.

    2. Meanwhile, line 2-1/2 quart dome-shaped bowl with foil. Soften ice cream and pack evenly into prepared bowl. Cover; freeze until firm.

    3. Prepare MERINGUE. Heat oven to 450°F. Cover wooden board or cookie sheet with foil. Center frozen cake layer on foil; invert and unmold ice cream onto top. Peel off foil from ice cream. Spread meringue evenly over entire surface, covering holes and sealing edges down to foil. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or just until lightly browned. Remove from oven; serve immediately. Or, cover with cake saver lid (not foil or plastic wrap) and immediately return to freezer; serve frozen. 10 to 12 servings.

    MERINGUE: In large bowl, stir together 1/2 cup cold water, 1 tablespoon meringue powder and 1/4 cup sugar. Beat 5 minutes until blended; gradually add additional 1/4 cup sugar, beating until meringue is stiff and dry. Use immediately.
