Better Than Anything Cake

My English teacher (Mama Hogg) gave me this recipe to try out to possibly use as a part of one of our class meals. When I tried it at home my family and some our "adopted" babies - my brothers friends - said that it was "better than anything". So came the name. My class now requests it on a regular basis and there is always a pan full on my kitchen counter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 13 cups water (or as called for by your cake mix)

  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • Cool Whip
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

i have made this many times- though not by quite the same name, using crumbled Heath or Skor bars on top instead of chocolate chips. It's awesome. As a teenager I actually think I lived on this cake for awhile! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
