Make the Cake p/the box instructions in 2 round layers and add one of the chocolate pudding into the mix. Make sure that you add your eggs, oil and water p/the cake instructions. I did not include those in my list of ingredients
Make the pudding w/a twist, use 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup of Kahlua and finish making p/the box instructions.
I use a large bowl for transport purposes. Place one cake round in the bottom of the bowl bottom side up. Drizzle 1/4 cup of the kahlua on the cake slowly so that it is absorbed. Then pour half the chocolate pudding on top. Then sprinkle a portion on the heath toffee chips and cover w/half of the cool whip. Place the next cake layer on top of the cool whip down side up and repeat. When you have the cool whip part done, there should be a little toffee left for decoration.

Someone just won a blue ribbon for this exact recipe not to long ago here on Just A Pinch, it was on the featured page just last week. Must be a good recipe for sure. :)

Oh it is!!! This is how you can have alcohol and chocolate cake and eat it too!! That toffee puts it over the top. :)

im thinking that instead of using chocolate pudding i will try it with butterscotch pudding,,or even using both flavors,,,,would still be very good

I have made a version of this for years and called it
"Death by Chocolate" This always gets rave reviews.
