The Best Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cake Ever...

Disclaimer: Rarely do I pat myself on the back for my culinary creations...but this time I SO did.  This cake was phenomenal.  And, it's fail safe.  So easy - just dump everything in a bowl and go.


Ingredients:
For cake -
1 box devil's food chocolate cake mix
1 package (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
4 eggs
1/2 cup hot brewed coffee
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

For cake topping -
1 tub of dark chocolate frosting
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour a Bundt pan (or poundcake pan, if that's all you or your kind neighbor have...)

2. Dump all cake ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth.  Pour batter into prepared Bundt pan.

3. Bake for about an hour.  Cool for a few minutes in pan then carefully remove from Bundt pan and place on a cooling rack.  Let completely cool before frosting.

4. Place opened tub of dark chocolate frosting in microwave and heat for about 45 seconds, or until melted enough to pour.  Stir with a spoon until smooth consistency throughout.  Drizzle frosting over cooled cake then sprinkle mini semi-sweet chocolate chips over entire top surface.


 Wham bam thank you you ma'am!


If you haven't already run to the kitchen to preheat your oven to try this sucker out, perhaps you will now...upon seeing the inside of this decadent chocolate lover's dream.


As you can see, the cake looks pretty good lit.  Didn't melt with 12-ish candles shoved into it.  And, no, my husband isn't 12...we just didn't have 31 candles in our party stash.


And, yes, our clown in the background (a.k.a. friend who moonlights it as a clown) played "happy birthday" on the harmonica for us.  How clutch is that?!?

Oh, I'm pretty sure this is the cutest kid with a balloon animal...ever!  Not that I'm biased, or anything.


Hope you enjoy this miracle cake as much as we did!  It was totally worth stepping off the Paleo bandwagon for a weekend of chocolate indulgence...
