The basic part of the cake layers is from a boxed cake mix with a special ingredient mixed in: pudding! This makes the cake extra moist and will be a cake hack you’ll probably use all the time.
You will make this Hershey Bar cake extra tall by cutting your two round cakes in half to make four thin layers. To do this I highly recommend a cake slicer. Of course, you can do this with a bread knife if you’re up for it, but the cake slicer ensures the layers are even. I can never get them even with a knife! They’re usually at Walmart or a craft store and are under about $15.
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
1 Box German Chocolate cake mix
1 3oz box instant vanilla pudding
3 large eggs
1/3-1/2cup oil (depending on cake mix brand)
1 1/4 cup water (depending on cake mix brand)
1 8 oz cream cheese – soft
1 scant cup granulated sugar
1 12oz frozen whipped topping (I couldn’t find 12oz and used 9oz)
1 scant cup confectioners sugar
1 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of choice)
1 Giant Hershey bar – grated (not regular size)
How to make it:
Combine cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, and oil & water according to cake mix package instructions. Beat until smooth and pour into two 8″ pans – greased & floured or sprayed with something like Bakers Joy (I spray them). Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Remove and cool layers.
With a STAND ALONE MIXER (important! unless you have a REALLY strong arm!) beat cream cheese and granulated sugar for 20 minutes. Add in confectioners sugar and beat just until smooth. Fold in whipped topping, chopped pecans, and grated Hershey bar.
