Chocolate Chip Snack Cake Recipe

Instant pudding mix and cake mix cut the preparation time for this delicious cake that is loaded with grated chocolate chips. I often make it for weekend guests and work luncheons. It always goes over well.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:12-15 servings


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 package (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, grated, divided
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips and half of the grated chocolate.
  • 2. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
