Chocolate Bliss Bundt Cake

Traci Coleman Recipe

By Traci Coleman TraciB70

What is there not to love about chocolate pudding, chocolate chips, chocolate ganache, snickers candy bars and, oh yeah, how about some caramel, too?? And, yes, all in one amazing cake! *~Drool~*

ENJOY!


The original recipe comes from a Betty Crocker magazine, but I changed it to be from scratch instead of using a cake mix (it's how I roll...) and I changed out a few of the ingredients and toppings.

UPDATE: Because of requests, I've added the boxed cake mix instructions to the bottom of the recipe for those that may not want to follow the scratch recipe.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Sweet, satisfying and perfectly moist! This is such a decadent cake; We couldn’t wait for it to come out of the oven and finish it so we could taste it. (Then we couldn't wait to get seconds!) Ideal for a bake sale or special occasion dinner.
