Triple Chocolate Picnic Cake

August 25, 2010

Hello chocolate! This has got to be one of my favorite chocolate cakes. Triple Chocolate Picnic Cake is easy to prepare and tastes moist and delicious. The glaze alone is drool inducing. Look at it just dripping over the sides! It’s definitely a cake worthy of picnics and potlucks. I made this one for a friend’s birthday and by the empty cake carrier at the end of the night, I’d say it was a hit!

So, how’s it taste?

I’m not sure this cake could get more chocolatey, so you know this girl loved it. German chocolate cake mix, pudding, and chocolate chips make for one awesome cake! The mini chocolate chips are my favorite part because with each bite you get tiny bursts of pure chocolate. The next time you bake, make sure this is what’s in your oven. You won’t be disappointed!
