Calling all chocolate lovers! This is for you! Devils food cake, chocolate chips, hot fudge and butter pecan ice cream, whats not to love! Turn an ordinary cake mix into something spectacular. Only a few ingredients needed to put this scrumptious hot fudge cake recipe together.
1 box devils food cake mix ( the kind with the pudding in the mix )
Note: My cake mix required water, oil and eggs
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2qts. butter pecan ice cream
16oz. jar hot fudge
7oz. can whipped cream
2 to 4oz. jar whole maraschino cherries
Method: Hot Fudge Cake
Start by mixing your cake mix together according to the instructions but add the chocolate chips to the cake batter. Use a 9 x 13in. baking dish to bake the cake. Let it completely cool, making it a day in advance is good.
Cut pieces into about 2 to 3 inch squares and slice them in half. Spoon ice cream onto the bottom half of a piece about as thick as the slice of cake and place the top back on. Gently press it down to get rid of any air pockets so you have a nice solid piece.
Microwave your hot fudge according to instructions and drizzle it over the top. Add the whipped cream and a cherry, that’s it. It’s very rich and is not diet friendly but once in a while you deserve a treat. I recommend making your pieces to order. The pecans in the ice cream along with the chocolate chips add a nice little crunch. You can change the flavor of the ice cream to anything you like but I recommend trying if with the butter pecan.
