I received this recipe card in the mail about 10 years ago and still make it with rave reviews every time. I have switched up cake mixes and candy bars accordingly and it is always delicious. Thanks for posting so more can enjoy it as we have.

This is a delicious, decadent cake, perfect for any sweet tooth! The chunks of chocolate in the icing are so good. Simple to make with a mix, and the frosting is easy to throw together. I'm also terrible at frosting cakes, but the chunks of chocolate in this icing make it pretty forgiving, in terms of cake crumbs, uneven bits, etc. The only revision I made was to cut back on the chocolate bars, by omitting the garnish. I would also suggest that it would serve more than 10 people, as it is so very sweet (and I have a very hungry sweet tooth), so only a sliver is needed to satisfy.
