    Reefbubbles's Note:

    This recipe was given to me 22 years ago. A friend made this up and her husband was so impressed He told her it was "the bomb", and it stuck. It's super simple and may not sound like anything super impressive but it is. It is my staple, always asked to bring to parties. Feeds a large group. Layer as directed, the chocolate pudding moistens the cake perfectly. You can add some chocolate chips to the cake batter. But on the other hand you can make this recipe low fat by using 1 egg and cut some of the oil and use apple sauce instead. Use lite whip cream and sugar/fat free pudding.

      This dessert is awesome! Made it for a Christmas gathering and it was a BIG hit! Guests asked for the recipe, and many took some home. Both adults and young children loved it! Hubby and I loved it, too! Thanks for sharing!

      I've been making different versions of this for years, but have always called it DEATH BY CHOCOLATE. You can make it a real chocoholic's dream by using Chocolate Cool Whip and/or even spreading chocolate sauce over the pudding layers. Different combos of pudding flavors and cake mixes can be used such a banana pudding with yellow cake, butterscotch pudding with white cake, etc. This dessert is really only limited by your imagination!
