This is an old Hershey's recipe that we've loved for many, many years. It's one of those "magic trick" type recipes. You pour hot water over the batter, bake and "Voila!" the cake is on top and the fudge is on the bottom. If you're a chocoholic, this recipe will make you sooooo happy! It's warm, fudgy and delicious and is fairly easy to make.
