Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake Dessert

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, you might want to make your sweetie a decadent dessert.
Of course chocolate is always associated with Valentine's Day, so I will share this chocolate dessert.
A very rich and chocolatey dessert.
Start by baking a chocolate cake according to the directions on the box. I used a Chocolate Fudge Cake mix but any chocolate cake will work. The Chocolate Fudge is darker and richer than lets say a German Chocolate would be if that makes a difference to you.
Make sure you bake your cake in a greased and floured pan for easier removal.
Cool your cake to room temperature and turn out onto a towel.
Using a long knife, split your cake into two layers. Don't worry if it's not completely even. It's all going to be covered up with a yummy filling!
 Take one layer and place it back in a clean cake pan.
Here's the yummy part. I love cream filling! I love me a little cake with lots of cream filling!!
This one is easy to make.
Take one box of vanilla instant pudding. Mix in 1 1/2 cups milk. Let set until thickened then mix in one 8 ounce container cool whip.
Spread the filling on your first layer of cake.
Put your remaining layer of cake on top.
Now take a can of frosting, heat in the microwave just until it's pourable and......
pour all over your cake. Again I'll mention the chocolate fudge is pretty dark and rich in case you want to opt for a lighter chocolate.
For an alternative to chocolate how about trying a Strawberry Cake mix with Strawberry Frosting?
Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Hi, I'm watching the Big Super Bowl game AND the commercials with one eye --and blogging with the other. The lady who sang the National Anthem was AWESOME, best I've heard that song sung in YEARS... Wow!!!!

    I'm not much of a Chocolate person (other than Hot Chocolate) --but that one would be good with Strawberry topping instead of Chocolate (to me)...ha


  2. Looks great and just so there are enough calories, might as well add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of that dessert. LOL

  3. I think I gained weight just looking at that. That cake would also be good just adding another layer of the pudding/cool whip on top instead of the frosting and then when serving a piece drizzle hot fudge over it. From the warm sunny south, to the cold snowy north. Sis
