Earthquake Cake

Every year I'm requested by my Mom to make this for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've used every kind of chocolate cake mix flavor and brand there is and it doesn't matter. It's all good. One time I substituted a butter pecan cake mix for something different and it was delicious too.
