Smores Cake

   What sweet treat says comfort more than smores? I'm thinking a Smores cake.
   Recently I helped out at a fundraiser and one of my friends brought this cake. It went over so well that I decided to make it for Easter dinner. The grandkids had a fine time smashing the graham crackers in baggies to sprinkle on top. Of course, they ate a few, too.
  This was very easy to make and my crowd gave it a two thumbs up.

Smores Cake
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
eggs, water and/or oil as directed on package
