"This really does taste a lot like the real thing, and it is easy to make. I got this recipe from a family member, and while I've only made it myself once (my husband just requested it as his birthday cake), I've eaten it many times, and it is a crowd-pleaser! I have only had it as cake, but I imagine it would work better for larger crowds as bars. This tastes MUCH better if it is made the day before and allowed to chill overnight before eating."

"was wonderful, made it for a funeral potluck and there were only crumbs left. Thank you for the great recipe. Had a hard time getting the filling to pull together, but found if you beat for 10 min and let it rest for about 5 min. and beat again that you have better luck with it."
"I prefer the bar version made in the jelly roll pan, but the timing needs to be adjusted to 17 minute bake time. The cake mix could also be divided into two 9X13 pans and then double the filling and icing to make two pans. Also, the only way to frost these is with homemade frosting as follows. Melt 3 oz choc with 3 T butter, then mix in 3 c powdered sugar w/1 tsp vanilla. It will be very crumbly. Then mix in about 6 T boiling water until it reaches a pouring consistancy. Pour over top and refridgerate."
"My sister-in-law makes this all the time. She lives in another town, and I was really hungry for this, so I searched here on the Zaar and found this one that is most like hers. I thought it was great. I like the frosting idea on this one as compared to the other recipes that call for melting chocolate chips, margarine and adding raw egg. The raw egg kinda bothered me. This is excellent."
"I have never given a 1 star before but this was horrible. No one in my family would even finish their first piece. I had to throw it away. Im sorry but I will not be making this again."
"Excellent recipe! Tastes just like a "Ho Ho". I made it for my husband's birthday. the whole family raved and my mother requested that I make it for her birthday. Thanks for the recipe-fun way make chocolate cake a little more interesting."
"My family loved this cake!!! Tastes just like Ho Ho's and soooo easy to make! I took the cake out of the pan, sliced it in half and put the filling on the bottom half, put the top layer of cake back on and topped it with the icing. Very very good! Thanks, this is our new favorite cake!!"
"This recipe is a favorite wherever I take it! Kids and kids at heart will love this easy chocolate treat."
"This cake is really tasty and I've enjoyed serving it to little kids at my home in Muscat, Oman. Always makes them happy and ask for more:)"
