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 ahead...you 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:)

I made this to have for our 3rd anniversary yesterday. Hubby loves chocolate and coconut so this was perfect for him. We both loved it! I only had 7oz of coconut so my filling was a little thin but it was still fantastic. Thanks for this delicious recipe!

I made this for my son's 6th birthday and other than baking my own chocolate cake first I followed the recipe exactly. It turned out really yummy...dense and decadent. I did have a little trouble with the some of the syrupy filling running down into the cake pan after some pieces had been removed. But this could be because during the cooking stage, I had to remove it from the stove just before it came to a boil as it grew SO much and was threatening to overflow onto the stove. Moral of the storey - use the biggest saucepan you own!!! I will make this again for sure! Oh, and I may cut back on the frosting by 1/4-1/3 as it really made a ton!

When it came time to make the filling I didn't have marshmallows so I used a jar of marshmallow creme - worked great. Everyone loved it - next time some almond halves may be added. Thanks Marie

I don't use cake mix so I made a plain chocolate torte base. A hit with the whole family and I don't even like coconut! Not difficult to make but certainly very impressive (and visually appealing too, great for hosting).

I made this for my Momma-In-Law for her birthday this weekend. She absolutely loved it. Very very rich though, DH & Dad-in-Law liked it very much too! It was a big hit! Easy to prepare too. I was unclear if the frosting should be poured on the cake while both were warm. I emailed Ms. Marie to find out and you do pour the frosting on while both the cake and frosting are warm, it makes a thick, rich chocolate icing. Yum Yum! Thank you for this great cake Marie!

I made this cake for a family holiday. I was told it was delicious, but very rich. Next time, I would use less coconut, I felt it was alittle overpowering. The chocolate icing on top was nice and thick, which reminded me of the icing on top of an Entermann's cake. I would make this recipe again.
