I found this recipe on Betty Crocker's website & made it over the weekend. We love Kahlua & especially enjoyed it in this dessert. Would like to try it with brownie mix next time, but just love it. Have to make it again, as the friends I've told about it are all drooling already. Thanks V for posting this keeper.

I made this cake yesterday. I did a few things different from what the recipe said. I used home made chocolate buttercrram icing, and put it in the freezer til it was good and hard. I topped it with simple chocolate gaunache & froze it all. It was all good, except the cake was really dry. I did pull out the leftovers the next day and cake was much better. I think that perhaps when the ice cream melted a bit the day before it soaked into the cake. I would make this again, maybe with a different cake as a base.
