The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake…Ever!

from WhipperBerry Dish



Chocolate Cake

1 Chocolate Cake Mix (any kind, I've used chocolate fudge, Swiss chocolate, milk chocolate)

1 C Mini Chocolate Chips

1 C Sour Cream

1 Pkg. of Chocolate Pudding (small box 3.5 oz.)

Prepare cake as directed on box and add sour cream, pudding and chocolate chips. Pour into 2 9-inch round pans. Bake as directed on box (you might need to add a minute or 2 to the baking time because of the added sour cream and pudding). Place on wire rack to cool.

Equally Impressive Chocolate Frosting

1 C butter at room temperature

3 oz. Ghirardelli 100% cocoa chocolate bar

4-5 C Powered Sugar

Milk

Chop the chocolate, then place in double broiler until melted (bowl over a pan of water on the stove). Cream together butter, chocolate, and 4 cups of powered sugar, add milk as needed for desired consistency. Combine until creamy, continue to add powered sugar and milk until it is the consistency and taste that you want. Place one layer of cake on cake stand and frost the top, then add the second layer and frost the rest of the cake.

Garnish with chocolate curls. I like to make bigger curls for this cake. Melt some chocolate, get a 9 inch round cake pan and turn upside down and then spread the chocolate as a thin, thin layer. Let cool until the chocolate is set and then get a cheese slicer or potato peeler and slice the chocolate into curls.
