Someone asked for a chocolate cake but does not want vanilla filling so I don't know what would go great with chocolate cake. Can you give me some suggestions?

Carmel

In our house, chocolate is considered a separate food group and goes with most everything!

I think the question should be "What doesn't go with chocolate?" lol.

I immediately think chocolate buttercream, peanut butter, oreo and raspberry.

Looks like the same 'stuff' and is made by Nestles, so it should be everywhere.
Much thicker than the Smucker Ice Cream Topping, you can pour that.

Good grief, learning how to do these forums and computer stuff is harder than the cakes!!!!!!! Can you tell I'm frustrated.... Anyway, if it comes out, the "quote" above should show about a product called: Nestle La Lechera Dulce de Leche, 14.1 oz.

I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds wonderful!

It is a caramel filling. Other posts said it works great because it is sooo thick and yummy!
I live in San Diego County with a lot of Latino grocery stores where you can buy all sorts of wonderful things to eat!!

I'm very concerned about buying it because I have a feeling I will put a huge amount of it on a spoon and then the spoon will fall into my mouth instead of onto the cake...

The most requested in my circle of friends/family:

Chocolate Cake, Raspberry Cream Cheese Filling. I also make a simple syrup with raspberry and just make a indydeb's buttercream with a hint of Lorann's Raspberry Flavoring.

Love this stuff (It's called Top n fill here in Australia) - it's basically what you get if you boil a can of condensed milk for hours.

It's great mixed with white chocolate ganache - makes caramel ganache that you can use as filling or under fondant.

Also mix with whipped cream as a topping for apple pie...

Or eat it straight off the spoon!

This is what was requested for the yellow cake and they don't want the same thing for the Chocolate cake. I was thinking about a cream cheese filling but they don't want to put the cake in the Frig, they want to leave it out. It's a 2 tier cake bottom tier yellow cake, top tier chocolate. They were being very picky and make it clear they didn't want the cake to be put in the Frig. So I just drew a blank with flavor fillings.

I usually always use a chocolate mousse. It tastes wonderfull and makes a chocolate cake even better. I also do a raspberry truffle flavor which is chocolate cake with fudge filling with raspberry puree which is a chocolate lovers dream, it tastes sooooooo good.

This sounds good, I'll have to give the "father" who wants the chocolate cake these flavor filling to see what he thinks. Is this raspberry puree filling on this forum?

No the raspberry puree filling is not on this forum, it is something I can up myself (with a little help from the internet and other recipes). But I have to say it is very rich and very moist. I made it for my family and we were on a chocolate high for hours.

7yrrt, Thank you for original post telling us about Dulce de Leche caramel! Just found La Lechera Dulce de Leche and it is gooooo--ooooo-----oooood!
First bought the La Lechera and was disappointed it didn't look like the picture, then noticed it wasn't the Dulce de Leche kind, it was just sweetened condensed milk.

So today I went on a search and found it in the 2nd Mexican specialities store for $2.50 a can. Bought all 12 cans after reading the reviews. Used it as filling for a sour cream/ pudding chocolate cake with BC icing for a neighbor's welcome cake. Taste, spreadability, consistency are all great for cake.

Sabor es muy bueno!
