Chocolate Cake

  • 15.25 oz Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake Mix plus ingredients listed on the box (eggs, oil, water)
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Whipped Cream Topping

  • 8 oz Cool Whip
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder sifted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips divided
  • 3 TBSP chocolate sauce
  • 3 TBSP chocolate shavings for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan with a light coating of cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Poke holes all over the cake.
  • Place the condensed milk and 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, whisking until smooth and combined.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over the cake, using a rubber scraper to fill the holes.
  • Chill cake in the fridge for an hour.
  • To make the frosting, combine Cool Whip with cocoa powder. Spread whipped topping on top of the cake.
  • Top cake with chocolate chips, chocolate shavings & drizzle with chocolate sauce. Let chill again for about 1 hour. Enjoy!
