This was the best chocolate cake I have ever made. I used a bundt pan, so you need to half the frosting. Today I made another one using white cake mix, apple pie filling and white chocolate chips for the frosting. Delicious.....

This is one of my all time favorite chocolate cakes. I add one tsp of almond flavoring the cake mix and I think it is then perfect! You can also bake it in a jelly roll pan for bars. It is so fast and easy to make and a big hit at pot luck dinners.

Made this as a bundt cake with a triple chocolate cake mix. I followed the other suggestions of baking 43 minutes and cutting back to 1/2 cup sugar in the frosting. Instead of chocolate chips, I used white chocolate chips. My boyfriend liked the cake but I found it very gritty/granular tasting. The granularity seemed to be the cake mix, rather than the sugar (which some reviewers had commented about). But definitely a moist cake! Initally, the batter seems to be very thick. Also, I think I would have added more cherry pie filling to make it a thinner batter - that might help with the grittiness.
