Lookng for some deserts for Easter Sunday and I found this one. I have not made it for years and it is so good. Hope you enjy this as much as my fauily did when I made it. Now it is up to the kids to make. :) (PS Do not let the size of the recipe intimidate you, it is really easy to make.)
In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Cool
Transfer to a large bowl; add sugar and beat until blended.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture alternately with water beating well after each addition.
Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 28-33 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients; set aside.
For glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Stir in confectioners' sugar, water and vanilla until smooth. Cool slightly.
Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with half of the whipped topping; drizzle with half of the glaze. Top with half of the filling. Repeat layers.
