Chocolate Dream Cake

mmmMMMMmmmmmMMMMMmmmmMMmmMMMMmmmmmMMMMmmmmmmmm.........this cake is one of my FAVORITES! So moist and just SCRUMPTIOUS! And because you bake this beautiful baby in a cookie sheet, it's enough to serve a crowd! However.... the crowd of FOUR at my house can lick the pan clean pretty quick!  Hint: hide it if you don't want it to disappear! :)
When I first met my husband, my mother-in-law {I've always claimed her :) I love her!} made this one night when we went there for dinner.  I fell in LOVE with it and it's been in my "special" recipe book since. 
Of course, as we near Valentine's Day, I have CHOCOLATE on the brain! BADLY!  So I apologize if I overrun you with chocolate recipes.... Tis the season! :)  Take this beauty to your Valentine's Party and make people think you just slaved away! They don't really need to know how easy it is:)

Chocolate Dream Cake
recipe from Cheryl
printable recipe

1 chocolate cake mix, prepared as directed on box (I like Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge)
1 sm box instant chocolate pudding (prepared as directed on box, PIE directions)
1 8 oz. brick cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
mid-size container of cool whip
chocolate bar to shave or chocolate sprinkles

Prepare chocolate cake as directed on box.  Pour into greased 15x10 cookie sheet.  Bake as directed and cool COMPLETELY!  Prepare pudding as directed on the box with the PIE directions recipe.  It usually takes 1/4 cup less milk to make it a thicker consistancy.  Let the pudding set up.  Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar until nice and smooth.  Add pudding and whip together until combined well.  Spread over cooled cake.  Spread container of cool whip over pudding layer.  I like to put chocolate bars in the freezer then use a vegetable peeler to make curls up the side of the chocolate bar.  But chocolate sprinkles work well too!  Just use what you've got :) Chill until ready to serve.  Refrigerate any left overs! {Yeah... that's funny around here too! }

Happy Cooking!
