Caramel-Fudge Chocolate Cake

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

    Had a craving for chocolate cake yesterday and found this beauty! Love that it starts with a cake mix. I used caramel syrup and chocolate syrup in place of the ice cream toppings, because that's what I had on hand. Everything else remained the same. We loved it. Chocolate-y, caramel-y goodness. Will definitely make again and will try it with the ice cream toppings next time! Five stars!

    Very easy and rich! I forgot to buy chocolate chips and only had olive oil. The cake was still delicious and everyone loved it. I used crushed Heath bars on top.

    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"!!
