Many many moons ago, my friend Linda turned me on to this recipe.  Linda is well known in our circles for her killer, over-the-top Caramel Brownies.  Now, I have yet to schmooze that recipe out of her, but I’m still working on it.

Sorry, the brownies had me side tracked….back to the cake.

  • Pour the entire jar of hot fudge sauce over the cake and allow it to soak into the holes.
  • Let stand until completely cooled.
  • When the cake has cooled, prepare the pudding layer by mixing a package of instant chocolate fudge pudding with 2 cups of cold milk.
  • Immediately pour the pudding mixture over top of the cake and spread into an even layer.
  • Place cake in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the whipped topping and hot cocoa mix. Stir until combined.
