"I made this once for a family gathering and now everyone insists that it be at every gathering! It's so easy; you use a box cake mix! For chopping the chocolate bars, I put them in the freezer, then hit them with a hammer while still in the wrapper"

For anyone that loves chocolate and fabulous very-easy-to-make-and-spread frosting, this takes the cake!! :) My only suggestion is to use three 9" layer cake pans instead of the 8". The 8" pans make too narrow a cake in diameter, and too high (would not even fit in my glass cake dome holder). The 9" pans make for a much more attractive and large, more normal appearing cake. And because the cake layers are just a tad thinner, the frosting in between the layers is thicker -- looks beautiful when it's cut and tastes terrific! Just remember to bake the 9" layers a few minutes less and test with a toothpick. And be sure to use a nice amount frosting between the layers -- the recipe makes plenty.

This cake is so extremely moist and the frosting is wonderful! The only thing I would add is some vanilla or other extract to the cream cheese base for the frosting to give it a little more flavor.

Everyone always asks me to make this cake. I made a GREAT CHANGE, substitute the crushed candy with Oreo cookies (half of a package) into the icing.... You're cake will be a hit!
