I have made this cake many times. My family loves it! I find it best when made with Swiss Chocolate Cake Mix but if unavailable, I will use German Chocolate or Devils Food cake mix. 😊
The main advantage of this cake is its ease of preparation... A box of cake mix, a tub of Cool Whip, some Hershey bars in the blender and you're done. Unfortunately, the cake just isn't that tasty. The Hershey bars don't add that much flavor, and do add a waxy consistency to the icing. This is a fine recipe for a tailgate. But it isn't really heavy or tasty enough for a birthday cake.
This cake is always a hit! My family loves it and it disappears quickly!
I made this cake for my dad's birthday for 5 years, then my for my brother's 12 birthday. After that everyone wanted to try this cake, so i made it for baby sowers, birthdays. mothers and fathers day, 4th of July, and even a wedding. May i note that I'm only 14. I love this cake.
My 14 year old, aspiring chef grandson made this cake for his great-grandfather's 90th birthday & it was a huge hit. The cake was light, the frosting not overly sweet & he already has been asked to make the cake for someone else! Loved it!!
This is the most wonderful recipe. I also cannot find the Swiss Choc Cake Mix any longer and use the German Choc cake mix. I have substituted Hershey's Symphony Candy bars with toffee instead of the Hershey Bars with Almond for a change. This cake hits the spot but is not overly sweet which makes it PERFECT!!
