Haven't tried this one yet but it looks yummy and plan on making it soon. I got it off of a Betty Crocker cake mix box. Prep time not included in recipe.

OH, it didn't knock my socks off but still good. I definately followed advice to melt chocolate chips last and glad I did because it was hardening before it made it in the oven. Also I doubled that part of the recipe and glad I did. More chocolate chips and more sweetened condensed milk because the cake part of it was nothing special. It was easy to make and tasty I just don't think I'll make this one again.
