This cake is sinfully rich and delicious!!! It is not difficult to make and the filling and frosting do remind you of a Mounds bar. Definitely on my keeper list! Thanks, Marie, for sharing!

This recipe deserves 10 stars! I made this today for my mom's birthday cake so it didn't get the overnight chilling, but it was fine with 6 hours in the fridge. It was a HUGE hit!!! Three of the men had seconds and I caught my sister eating the pieces that had broken off in the pan. It was absolutely amazing....moist, and so like a mounds bar! Not for calorie counters for sure, but go only live once! Thanks for our new favourite dessert!

This was delicious. I made it for my mother-in-law's birthday because this is her favorite kind of cake. She said it was much better then the ones she had gotten at the local bakery in past years. I used a Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix. I would definitely use a wooden spoon handle to poke holes all over the cake so that the toppings can get down in the cake more, but still a great recipe! Thank you for sharing:)
