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.
