I made a couple of these "Death by Chocolate" cakes for Mother's Day and I've been asked EVERYDAY since then to post the recipe, so here it is, MOM! :)
"Death by Chocolate" Cake
1 devils food chocolate cake mix
1 cup chocolate chips, divided
1 cup chocolate syrup
1 pkg. chocolate pudding mix
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 container Cool Whip
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Mix cake according to directions on box; pour into greased 9x13 cake
pan (I used two round pans so I could give one my mom and one to my mother-in-law). Bake 15 minutes; gently sprinkle ¾ cup chocolate chips over cake.
Continue to bake another 15 minutes or so, until cake is done. Remove
from oven and poke holes in the warm cake with the end of a plastic spoon. Pour fudge
syrup over cake. Allow cake to cool overnight, covered.
To make the frosting: Blend together chocolate pudding mix, heavy cream and cocoa powder; fold in
whipped cream. Frost cooled cake and garnish with
a some chocolate chips.
