It is safe to say that after making and eating this cake this weekend I am definitely in a “chocolate coma.”Â We celebrated my husband’s birthday this past weekend and he is the ULTIMATE chocolate lover.Â He would never have a dessert that wasn’t chocolate because “that is just a waste of a dessert.”Â So, I decided to bring all his favorite chocolates together and make this decadent cake.Â He (and I) absolutely loved it and he has already proclaimed that he wants this cake for every Birthday going forward.Â If you are ready to have your mind blown… make this cake!Â It is not that hard either.
You will need:
1 Package of decadent Chocolate fudge cake mix (and the ingredients listed on the box to make the cake)- this make mix makes it fudgey and gooey on the inside too!
1 container chocolate fudge frosting (I thought I might need 2, so you will see that in the picture, but 1 was enough)
1 package chocolate chips
12 miniture candy bars (I like to use milky way, snickers, and twix)
1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and make cake according to directions, Split cake mix into 2 8 inch round cake pans and bake for 28 minutes.Â Allow to cool completely
2. Once cake is completely cooled, dump one cake onto your cake place (flat side up) and frost the top and sprinkle with chocolate chips.Â Then place the other round cake on top (flat side down) and frost entire cake (top and sides) until you do not see the cake showing through
3. Take handfuls of chocolate chips and press them against the side of the cake until the entire side is covered in chocolate chips
4. Cut up Candy Bars and place on top of cake to fully cover the top, then melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in microwave (about 1 minute stirring every 20 seconds) and drizzle over cake.
I hope you enjoy this cake!Â Let me know your thoughts when you make it, because I know your mind will be blown!
