"I am having trouble getting the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter the right consistency so that they don't tear up the cake. I let cake sit 5 minutes or longer as advised. Suggestions please."

"Very delicious cake, but I tried to make it in a layer cake and did not work.My chocolate layer was like a chocolate shell, not sure what I did wrong. Will make again I may have to tweak the chocolate fudge."

"WOW! Was this ever a hit at my house. My daughter and her two sons say they don't like white chocolate, so being the type of grandma who wants the kids to try new tastes, I didn't tell them there was any white chocolate in the cake or in the topping. The children ate with gusto and sang my praises about this being the best cake ever! When my daughter tried it, she stopped eating long enough to say,

"Mom, this cake is the Bomb! What's in it?" Well I couldn't lie to her, so I told her, and she asked for a piece to take home."

"Fabulous cake. I don't know if I loved the cake or the fudge or the icing the best. Nirvana!

I do not like store bought icing (too many trans fats) - I am going to experiment with the white chocolate icing next time."

"This is one of the most delicious cakes I have ever made. It is very moist; the crisp chocolate layer is an unexpected texture; the frosting is superb. Except for decorating desserts, I had never used white chocolate in recipes before. It really brings out a richness that would otherwise be missing without it. My family has requested it for the next special occasion."

"Love this! I've been making it for 10 years. My son requests it on all his birthdays. I am making it for him today! I enjoy that the semi-sweet choc. layer is hard. That's the part of the bite I look forward to!"

"What a delightful recipe! It had a lot of flavour for something this easy. I typically don't use canned frosting, but wanted to follow the recipe exactly because Taste of Home has never let me down. It was fantastic! Will definitely make again. (Yes, it's very rich so a little goes a long way, which is a good thing when you're feeding a crowd.)"

"This cake is delicous. Everyone loved it when I brought it to a dinner party. The only problem is the fudge layer gets hard and is difficult to cut through."
