Emily's 15 th Birthday Cake," Choc Choc Chocolate Cake".

This is a three chocolate cake and it is really good!!  I start with a Duncan Hinds Devils food cake mix.(AND YOU ALL THOUGHT I NEVER USE A BOX CAKE!)

1 Duncan Hinds Devils food cake mix
1,  4 oz. package Jello chocolate instant pudding mix
3/4 C. sour cream
1/2 C. hot coffee or hot water and 1/2 t. instant espresso or instant coffee
1/2 C. vegetable oil
3 large eggs at room temperature
3 C. semi sweet chocolate chips measured into two 1 1/2 C. portions
3/4 C. heavy whipping cream

Prepare either a 10 " bundt pan or a tube pan by buttering and flouring it well.  Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F.   Beat altogether in a large mixing bowl the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, hot coffee, oil, and eggs.  Stir in 1 1/2 C. of the chocolate chips.  Spread evenly in the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour on the middle rack of the oven.  A pick should come out clean when tested.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.  Invert onto a plate or wire rack and cool completely. 

Heat the cream in a saucepan to a simmer, do not bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining chocolate chips until smooth and melted.  Drizzle over the cake.  YUM!!
