Death By Chocolate

Death By Chocolate Cake....what a way to go right!

This cake is so rich, so full of chocolate goodness that you will only be able to eat a small piece but oh baby is it good!!

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Small Box Vanilla Instant Pudding
1 Small Box Chocolate Instant Pudding
4 Eggs
3/4 Cup Oil
1 Cup Sour Cream
1 (12 oz )Bag Of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (Divide the bags into thirds)

Mix cake mix,both puddings,eggs,oil,sour cream and 1/3 of the chocolate chips together for 2 minutes.

Pour HALF the batter into a prepared bundt pan. (I sprayed mine with the Pam cooking spray for baking that has the flour in it)

Sprinkle 1/3 of the  chocolate chips in top.

Add remaining batter, and pour the last of the chocolate chips on top.

Bake for 50 minutes at 350

* I wanted to add even more chocolate goodness so I melted a 1/2 can of Pillsbury chocolate frosting. I put it in a small pan and melted it over a very low heat on the stove top, stirring the whole time so it didn't stick and burn. I then drizzled it on top of the cooled cake. And topped that with some crushed up heath bar candy.

This is a very moist and dense cake. It is wonderful without the added toppings and great with ice cream.

 I have been in a blogging rut! I have just not been feeling it much lately. I have been looking at some of my favorites and it seems some of my favorite blogger's may be feeling the same way.

It's hot, we are busy with summer activities and kids home from school. Who wants to crank up the oven or slave over a hot stove in this heat? BUT.....

I just found this amazing new blog. "The Cutting Edge Of Ordinary" The photos are amazing, the recipes are amazing, yep....the whole things is pretty amazing. I kept changing my mind about which recipe was my favorite and which one I would try first. But this being summer and all of us thinking about eating lighter I picked this one to share. Healthy low calorie high protein snacks can be a challenge to find.....this one is....yep you got it is...AMAZING!!

Even though I have nothing fresh and exciting of my own.....I really wanted all my friends who have not had the pleasure of visiting The Cutting Edge Of Ordinary to experience it for themselves.
