Sue's notes for this recipe:
I have a really good coconut cake recipe, but was craving chocolate, so I switched out a few ingredients, and this is what I came up with. I took it to work (my co-workers are my guinea pigs, ha), and they all loved it! I hope you do too. :)

It's like my favorite candy bar in CAKE form! If you like coconut, you're going to love this wonderful blend of fabulous flavors.


Heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs, & oil in large bowl until blended. Beat on medium speed 4 minutes. Stir in coconut & chocolate chips. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray, or grease & flour (or dust with cocoa), and pour batter into pan. Bake approximately 1 hour (check with toothpick at 50 min.). Let cool in pan for 15 minutes, and then remove from pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
To make glaze, combine sweetened condensed milk & chocolate chips in a small saucepan. Over medium low heat, stir constantly until chocolate chips melt and mixture is smooth. Do not allow it to bubble. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Allow to cool for just a bit before glazing cake.
You can sprinkle the cake with coconut (I toasted mine), or nuts, or just leave plain!

Hello Sue. Your cake caught my eye and I am planning to make it to take to a friend. I didnt see in the instructions where or when to put in the pudding (I may be over-looking it) and was wondering if I just mix it in with the cake mix. I know it seems obvious that I would but I wanted to double check with you. Thanks and I can't wait to try your beautiful cake!! :)
