I made this recipe for a card party. Easy to make and very delicious. I had some leftover and heated a piece up in the microwave for a few seconds - made it very moist again great tasting. I did use Ghirardelli Bittersweet 60% Cacao Baking Chips - which are a little larger than regular chocolate chips - because that's what I had on hand - and they worked great.

I used mini semi sweet chocolate morsels (entire bag 10oz was equivalent to 2 cups), a box of Betty Crocker Delights Triple Chocolate Fudge, Nordic Ware 12 cup bundt pan, Hershey’s Cocoa powder to be specific and this came out delicious.Maybe next time if I use this box again I will omit the chocolate chips or use chocolate chips and get a plain chocolate cake since they already had them in the box.I sprayed pan with my Pam canola oil really well to make sure it didn’t stick and I baked this on the second rack for 50 minutes then checked it with a tooth pick. I wasn't sure as it didn't state in comments from others but it is what I tried and all came out delicious. Very moist, rich, and chocolatey of course!! I cooled it as stated for 10 minutes on top cooling rack while in the pan then put my cake stand on top of it and turned it upside down. It came right off no problem. We sprinkled it with confectioners sugar and it was such a treat for the family!

A very easy and tasty cake that still tastes better than ANY store-bought cake--to respond to the complainer below. It's a really quick way to whip up a really rich-tasting chocolate cake in a jiffy! (Just put in less chocolate chips to cut down on the sweetness if you prefer!)

Throwing pudding into a store bought cake mix is not a recipe! It is a cheap knockoff, and you might as well just go to the store and buy the cake!

This cake is simple and easy to make. The batter is thick and the chips do not sink to the bottom of the pan. So if yours are sinking, then the batter is too thin. I mixed it as long as the recipe said so the pudding thickened it up. It's pretty rich. I did use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet. I do not like the bitterness of semi sweet. I think it'd be a good cake to experiment with different chips and add in's with and plan to do so next time. The kids love it and compare it to a brownie in flavoring. Definitely making this again and again. :)

Did not add chocolate chips to the cake, but topped cooled cake with ganache (1 cup chocolate chips and 2/3 cup whipping cream heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until chocolate is melted). Turned out perfectly. Served it to company and it was enjoyed by all.Would also be delicious with whipped cream or ice cream.Perfect when you need a cake in a pinch and don't have time to bake one from scratch.

This cake has never failed me! For extra decadence, I glaze the cake with a chocolate ganache and sprinkle with Heath toffee bits, shredded coconut, crushed peppermint candy, or sprinkles. Any way I top it, the result is fabulous! Thanks for posting such a great go-to recipe!!
