Chocolate Cake to Die For

Recipe by Mama_Cito95
READY IN: 40mins
SERVES: 9-12
YIELD: 1 cake


  • 1
    (18 1/4 ounce) box betty crocker fudge cake mix
  • 1 13
    cups water (for cake mix)
  • 12
    cup vegetable oil (for cake mix)
  • 3
    eggs (for cake mix)
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1
    (16 ounce) jar mrs. richardson's hot fudge
  • 1
    (8 ounce) container Cool Whip (to top) (optional)
  • 2 78
    ounces Skor candy bars (to top, optional) (optional) or 2 7/8 ounces Heath candy bars, broken into pieces (to top) (optional)


  • Bake cake according to directions.
  • Immediately after baking, poke holes all over cake with end of wooden spoon (like aerating your lawn).
  • Pour can of condensed milk on top of the cake (filling in the holes as much as possible--I often use a spatula to scrape condensed milk that has gathered at the edge of the pan into the holes).
  • Melt jar of hot fudge and pour that over the cake (covering the top of the cake with fudge, but again, filling in the holes as much as possible. I also use a spatula here to scrape hot fudge that has gathered at the edge of the pan into the holes).
  • Before serving, top cake with Cool Whip and crushed Score or Heath Bar. (optional, but covers up the holes to make the cake look more presentable).
