Another magazine find. Moist chocolate cake covered with a rich chocolatey glaze!
Top Review by jswinks
Very rich and good. I used sugar/fat free pudding and lite whipped topping and worked great. My stars looked horrible, I'll skip those next time, they just melted and looked weird. Don't try to spread the frosting, just let it drizzle from the top. Everyone loved it.
