Caramel-Fudge Chocolate Cake Recipe

Caramel-Fudge Chocolate Cake Recipe

To satisfy the chocolate lovers in our family, I added hot fudge topping and chocolate chips to a caramel-covered dessert that's quite popular in our area. The moist cake layer is a breeze to prepare using a boxed mix...and the rich toppings make it especially decadent. —Karen Stucky, Freeman, South Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:12-15 servings

"I've made this before but I didn't add the chocolate chips in the mix. I'll have to try that. This is extra rich but so good. It always goes fast when I make it. We always call it "Death by Chocolate"!!"

Re: To lebs3607, entirely too sweet? Did you not look at the recipe before you made it, or did you just say you made it? Duh! If you made it, you know it consist of choc. chips, caramel, hot fudge, choc cake mix, what gives you a clue that it will be sweet? Please stop leaving your rude comments. We all know that it will be sweet and yummy. You shouldn't of made it in the first place. What texture were you looking for? No, please don't tell us."

"This cake is a real classic. I've served it many, many times. I don't know how many times I've shared the recipe. I've substituted crushed Butterfinger candy bars, M & M's, Reese's pieces or chocolate peanut butter cups for the toffee bits with the same tasty results! Yum!"

"I cut this recipe out of the magazine in 1999. It is a 'keeper'. The caramel and hot fudge soak into the cake and make it super moist. The cool whip topping for icing is the perfect choice. I used English toffee w/ chocolate already in it instead of toffee and mini chips on top (Heath Bar brand)."
