My son's favorite birthday cake is Strawberry Supreme Fridge Cake. My husband and daughter always said, "It's good cake, but it's not chocolate." I took the idea of the strawberry cake and decided to try to make a chocolate version. BOY, did I EVER MAKE a CHOCOLATE VERSION! This is totally a family favorite, and now my son has decided it's his favorite too!

How To Make hot fudge anyday cake

  • After preparing the cake as instructed on the cake box, I pour it into a 13x9 pan I've sprayed with no stick cooking spray.  I bake the cake according to the instructions on the back of the box also.
    Follow directions on the cake box to prepare and bake the cake. Any chocolate boxed cake will do, but I try to make sure I buy chocolate fudge. Add chocolate chips to the top of the cake before putting it in the oven.
  • After allowing the cake to cool for about 20 minutes, I poke holes in the cake with the end of a wooden spoon.  I melt the hot fudge in the microwave according to package instructions, and I pour the hot fudge in the holes.
    Allow the cake to cool for at least 20 minutes or more. Use the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake. I make big holes because they are easier to fill, and giant globs of hot fudge make people happier than small globs. After filling all the holes, pour the remaining hot fudge on the cake.
  • I fold the cool whip until I have one color.
    Follow pudding instructions except use only 1 cup of milk. After whisking the pudding, fold in the cool whip. Fold the cool whip until the topping is one color.
  • Cover the cake with the creamy pudding and top it with chopped cocoa almonds.  The almonds are amazing AND they keep the plastic wrap from sticking to the good stuff.
    Chop as many almonds as you'd like to add to the top of the cake. I use the cocoa almonds that do not have salt. The almonds also keep the plastic wrap from sticking to the topping.
  • Hot fudge, whipped frosting, and cocoa almonds will dress up any chocolate cake mix.  Hot Fudge Anyday Cake is easy to make!
    Cover the cake in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for at least 4 hours. I like to make this cake the night before, so it's served much later than 4 hours. When people tell me their cake wasn't as good as mine, I KNOW this is why! Make it the night before, and you will be amazed :) Try some after 4 hours, and try some the next day, and tell me I'm wrong!?!
