Have You Had Your Dose Of “Better Than Everything Cake” Yet?

I love the simplicity of this cake. yes, it calls for a boxed cake mix, but who cares? Sometimes, using a boxed cake mix is a great option and can turn out some really wonderful dessert, such is the case with this recipe. This cake is so easy to make and it doesn’t require a whole lot of ingredients or time. I’m super excited for you all to try it.

One of our friends over at Bless Us O Lord had this to say about the recipe:

The reason this recipe is easy is because it’s a doctored up box cake. The only complication is grating the chocolate bar, but I do that in the food processor so it’s no trouble for me. The reason it’s delicious (I think) is also the grated chocolate bars, so don’t leave them out.

Don’t you worry, Barbara, I’d never leave the chocolate out 🙂
