 Ingredients List

  • Cake
  • 1 package (18.25) devil's food cake mix
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil, may substitute veretable, corn, sunflower)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Chocolate Ganache
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons milk or water
  • Chocolate Whipped Cream
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces whipped cream (I used Cool Whip brand)
  • Additional ingredients
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Caramel Bits
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream (homemade or bought, again I used Cool Whip brand)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Prepare a 11x15 inch sheet pan with non-stick spray. You can even line with parchment paper for easier cleanup.

In the bowl of your mixer, add cake mix, cocoa, buttermilk, oil, eggs and extract. On low, mix until everything is combined. Turn speed to medium and beat 2 minutes.

Using an offset spatula, spread evenly in pan, batter will be a thin layer.

Bake 14 to 15 minutes or until center springs back when touched or a wooden pick comes out clean when stuck in middle of cake.
Allow to cool on wire rack.

Chocolate Ganache

Add chocolate chips, butter, syrup and milk (or water) to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals. Stir completely between each interval until chips are melted. It may only take 60 total depending on your microwave, be careful not to over-cook.

Chocolate Whipped Cream

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stir until smooth, allow to cool slightly. Stir chocolate into whipped cream until well incorporated. Refrigerate any unused whipped cream. This is great on Chocolate Waffles

Assemble Cake

Spread 1 tablespoon chocolate whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate ganache on one layer.

Top with a sprinkle of nuts, caramel bits and chocolate chips, repeat two more times so that you have a three layer cake.

Repeat process with other cake cutouts until all the cake is used.

Refrigerate cakes until ready to serve or refrigerate up to 3 days.
