    BlondieItaliana's Note:

    This is a decadent and rich moist dark chocolate cake recipe, but it's quick & easy as a boxed cake mix is used. You can make this simple in a bundt pan & serve without frosting with just a dusting of confectioners sugar... or you can prepare it our favorite way by making it into a delicious layer cake using canned or homemade dark chocolate frosting... This is my hubby's favorite that I make for him on Valentine's Day and his Birthday every year...

      This was very rich & yummy. Next time, i'm going to grate in chocolate instead of the chips-just so there aren't hard pieces & the grated chocolate will melt. Used #107379 Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. I doubled the frosting recipe & it frosted the whole cake.

      Holy Terrific!!!!!!! This cake was absolutely as described, RICH & MOIST. I only used frosting as decor as I thiught it might have been too much and didn't want to take from the flavor of the cake. This is really one of the best dark chocolate cakes I have ever made. The whole family loved it! Blondie, you are one of my favorite chefs so keep the recipes coming PLEASE!! This cake is a keeper!!!! TY for posting!!

      I used a really dark chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips for this decadent treat. It was awesome, rich, light, fluffy, moist, tender and tall. What beautiful dark chocolate flavor. The crumb of the cake was perfect and best of all it was quick and super easy to throw together. It didn't need any frosting it was excellent with just a sprinkling of icing sugar. Thank for sharing your recipe BlondieItaliana.
