This recipe takes a few days, but it's WONDERFUL
It got it's name because when my sister took her first bite, she declared that it, indeed, tasted like Christmas.
2 boxes chocolate fudge cake mix, perpared per box directions (you have

dry them completely) and line them with cling film. Then put the cooled

clingfilm, and freeze for several more hours till icecream has set and
top and bottom have joined (I usually do another overnight).
Now it's ready for serving. Remove from pan top and place on serving
platter. Drizzle Magic Shell over top, cut, and plate.
