    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box German chocolate cake mix (I use Betty Crocker)
    • 1 1/3 cups water
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 3 eggs

    Chocolate Ganache

    • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
    • 1 (23 ounce) package milk chocolate chips
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 (5 ounce) hershey symphony chocolate bars with almonds and toffee (this is the big bar)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare cake according to package directions.Pour into a decorative Bundt pan, and bake according to package directions.
    2. 2
      Remove cake from oven, cool in pan 10 minutes, remove cake frompan and cool on wire rack completely.Place cake on serving plate.
    3. 3
      Pour heavy whipping cream into heavy sauce pan. Cook, over medium heat, stir occasionally, so not to scorch. Cook just until cream begins to boil.Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Add chocolate chips to whipping cream, stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla extract.
    5. 5
      Pour chocolate into a bowl. Place in refrigerator, stir every 10 minutes, for 1-2 hours ( It seems to be different for me everytime), until chocolate is amost spreading consistency, but will still drip from sides of cake.
    6. 6
      Spread ganache over entire cake, be generous.
    7. 7
      With a potato peeler, shave chocolate bar over cake, making chocolate shavings, fall over frosted cake. Do as many as you like.

      If you are a chocolate lover, this one is for you. When I picked this, I was thinking I would end with a traditional german chocolate cake but didn't pay too close attention to the ingredients. The outcome is not a traditional german chocolate cake, but is definitely a death by chocolate dessert! Next time I would make this in 2 round cake pans, cool the cakes then cut them in half, placing some of the ganache on each of the 4 layers. I added toffee pieces to the shavings as well. Very yummy!
