During this time of the year, it's common to find treats like carrot cake and lemon meringue pie in stores. But if you'd rather dig into a classic chocolate dessert, you're in luck. Costco recently brought back its tuxedo chocolate mousse cake, per @costco.hotbuys on Instagram.


The item, which is often sold during the winter holidays, is made of chocolate cake, white chocolate mousse, chocolate mousse, and brownie chunks. These components are layered and topped with with chocolate ganache and more chocolate decorations ... because you can never have enough chocolate.

As with many Costco bakery creations, the layered masterpiece is quite large, weighing nearly three pounds. It also costs $16.99, though the exact price might vary by your location. This is a dollar more than previous years, but considering how big it is, it's still a great deal.

That being said, the tuxedo chocolate mousse cake would be perfect for parties. Otherwise, you'll be glad to know that it's possible to freeze the cake, according to Costco shoppers on Instagram.

We'd recommend slicing the cake and freezing each one between layers of parchment paper. This way, the slices will be easier to defrost.


If you'd like to pick up the chocolatey cake, be sure to swing by Costco soon. You can also call your warehouse in advance to see if it's in stock. The item number is 40706.

Other Costco items to try:

The bakery section at Costco recently released a peanut butter chocolate pie, and it's been a hit with shoppers so far. It costs $19.99 and weighs nearly five pounds.


While we're on the topic of chocolate, consider picking up a bag of the Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Covered Mangos. The dark chocolate is said to balance the sweetness of the mango, resulting in a delicious treat.
