    For chocolate lovers:

    1 box Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake (w/ mini choco chips)
    1 box Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 cup cocoa
    2 cups sourcream
    2 4oz pkg chocolate fudge instant pudding
    8 eggs
    1 cup veg oil
    2 2/3 cup chocolate milk
    2 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup mini choco chips

    Sift dry ingredients together and then add wet, mix until incorporated and then mix for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 until toothpick comes out clean. You may have to test a few times, sometimes I hit a choco chip and my toothpick comes out all messy.
    You can’t really half the recipe because the flavor comes from the combo of the 2 chocolate mixes so it makes a lot of cake.

  • This isn't a homemade cake, but since it's for your hubby's birthday this one could be fun! Better that Sex cake! Make a German chocolate cake according to directions, in a 9x13 pan. While it's still warm, poke it full of holes. Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over the holey cake (warm it up first if you want), let it soak in, then pour a jar of caramel/butterscotch ice cream topping over it (again, you can warm it first if you want to make it runnier). Top with 8oz cool whip, and sprinkle with chopped toffee candy bar, chopped butterfingers, mini chocolate chips, drizzles of chocolate syrup or caramel syrup, whatever looks/sounds good. Refrigerate. It's better the next day! I'm sure you could also do it in 8 or 9 inch rounds, stacked, and "frost" the whole cake with cool whip, you just might have some milk/caramel running out the bottom. But it's sooooooo good!

  • Bake a chocolate cake mix as directed. While still hot, pour on a can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 jar of caramel ice cream topping and 1/2 jar chocolate ice cream topping. Let cool completely. Once cooled completely, frost with a container of Cool Whip and top with crushed Heath bars. You can dizzle on the caramel and chocolate sauces too. This cake is incredible served from the refrigerator.
