Do you have one of those desserts that you just think of a lot?

This one is like that for me.

It seems like when people ask me to bring a dessert somewhere, this is the one that pops in my mind.

Not only is it super simple, but it is also a real crowd pleaser!

This is the perfect recipe to whip up quick for a delicious dessert for any get-together, potluck or simply just because it is so delicious!

Chocolate Dream Cake should become a staple recipe in every home, especially in the summer months.  Because it’s cooled, it seems even more satisfying when it’s warm outside and you’re enjoying a delicious cooled dessert.

 

Chocolate Dream Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 Chocolate Cake Mix*, prepared as directed on box
  • 1 small box instant chocolate pudding, prepared as directed on box, PIE directions.
  • 1 8 oz brick cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Mid-size container cool whip, thawed
  • Shaved chocolate (buy your favorite chocolate bar and grate the outside chocolate over the cake and eat the rest of the candy bar… you’re welcome. Or use chocolate sprinkles like these.)

Directions:

  1. Prepare chocolate cake as directed on box.
  2. Pour into greased 15×10 cookie sheet.
  3. Bake as directed and cool COMPLETELY.
  4. Prepare pudding as directed for PIE on the box. It usually takes 1/4 cup less milk to make it a thicker consistency.
  5.   Let the pudding set up.
  6.   Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar until nice and smooth.  Add pudding and whip together until combined well.  Spread over cooled cake.
  7. Spread container of cool whip over pudding layer.
  8. I like to put chocolate bars in the freezer then use a grater to grate chocolate or vegetable peeler to make curls up the side of the chocolate bar.  But chocolate sprinkles work well too!  Just use what you’ve got 🙂
  9. Chill until ready to serve.  Refrigerate any left overs! {Yeah… that’s funny around here too! }

*use a good quality chocolate cake mix.  I like Betty Crocker’s Triple Chocolate Fudge or German Chocolate. But there are a bunch of good ones out there.
