This is a recipe lent to me by my friend, a Pampered Chef representative. She uses this cake as a demo at her house for her parties. Chocolate cake with a "raspberry pudding." I think it is like eating a giant chocolate truffle!

I made this in two 9" round pans because I could not find my 9"x13". It worked out great, I was able to keep one at my place, and bring one to work. Everyone loved it, and ate it all up right away. They all asked for the recipe too. I was a bit worried pouring all that jello on it, but it turned out amazing. Definitely will make again. Thanks for the recipe!!
