Death by Chocolate Cake

            This is one of my husband's and my boys' favorite cakes that I make.  We call it "Death by Chocolate" because there are so many layers of chocolate.  It is too much for me but as my hubby says "you're weird babe".  He is a firm believer that there is no such thing as "too chocolatey".  This cake will take 2 batches of homemade chocolate frosting or 2 full cans of chocolate frosting from the store.  It also needs a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a chocolate candy bar.


       For this cake, you will need to make 2 round cake pans of chocolate cake.  I use my own homemade chocolate cake mix.  Click here to get the recipe.  I gently oiled the pans and gave them a light dusting of flour as you see here.

    You will also need one round cake pan of chocolate brownies.  I use my brownie recipe but just omit the marshmallows and caramel from the recipe for this cake.  Click here for the brownie recipe.  

      Once you have 2 round cakes pans of chocolate cake cooled and removed from their pans and one round cake pan of brownies cooled and removed from their pan, we will stop assembling the cake.

      The first layer is one of the chocolate cakes.  You place it in the center of a plate and now frost it with your favorite chocolate frosting.  You only need to do the top because the sides will be done at the end.

     Now, take semi-sweet chocolate chips and sprinkle it generously over the frosting.

      The next layer is the brownie.  You frost it and sprinkle it with chocolate chips too.  As you can tell, it doesn't have to be perfect or fit perfectly.  Any "gaps" can be filled in with frosting later.

The last layer is the other cake.  Now, frost the top and down sides. Until everything has a good covering.

     Take the chocolate bar (we used a milk chocolate one) and shave it.
