Jeanne's Story

I have a friend who absolutely LOVES anything chocolate. I make this for him fairly often. He doesn't care for the nuts in his but I do, so I make his special. Here is an internet picture of the final result.

Ingredients

1
(18.25 oz) box devil's food cake mix
1 bottle
hershey's chocolate syrup
3/4 c
chopped walnuts or chopped pecans
1 can(s)
can chocolate frosting (milk chocolate or dark chocolate)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare the cake according to directions on the box except add half of the chopped nuts into the batter before baking.
2
Remove the cake from the oven and let cool.
3
Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke several holes in the cake.
4
Slowly pour chocolate syrup into each hole. As it soakes up the syrup, go back and pour more syrup. You want it to be moist but not mushy.
5
Cover the cake with the chocolate frosting and sprinkle the remaining nuts.
