Jolayne's StoryThis cake looked so good when I saw the picture, I thought I had to make it. Everyone I feed loves chocolate, so it was a no-brainer. Besides I love chocolate and mint together. I found the recipe on a blog called somethingswanky.com.
Hope you enjoy it.
chocolate cake mix + water, oil, eggs as listed on the box
14.5 oz. sweetened condensed milk
12.8 oz. hershey's special hot fudge sauce
pkg. keebler fudge mint cookies (or thin mints)
duncan hines mint flavor packet
andes mint chips
1Prepare and bake the cake mix in a 9x13-in. baking dish. Allow to cool completely.
2Use the bottom of a wooden spoon to poke holes evenly across the entire cake (about 20 holes). Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake, trying to fill the holes.
3Heat the hot fudge sauce in a small bowl in the microwave. 30-40 seconds should do the trick, you just want to soften a little.
4Crumble half of the fudge mint cookies into the hot fudge sauce and mix. Spread the cookie/fudge sauce over the cake. (I just crumbled the cookies across the cake and poured the hot fudge over the top.)
5In a large bowl, whisk together the mint packet and the cool whip. spread the whipped topping over the fudge layer.
6Crumble the remaining cookies over the top of the cool whip. Sprinkle the Andes Mint chips over top.
7Refrigerate and chill for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).
8Cut and serve.
9NOTE: If you are like me, I had no idea what a Duncan Hines flavor packet was. I found that Duncan Hines makes several different flavor packets and I found them in the baking aisle near the cake mixes.
