Too Much Chocolate Cake is a chocolate cake that has chocolate chips in the chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, and then there is the grated white chocolate on top! And you get this beautiful cake.

I did adapt the cake just a little bit because I thought that some cinnamon would be wonderful in it. And since fall is getting closer, that is what I did. Then I added the Hershey’s frosting just because it tastes just like fudge. 


Too Much Chocolate Cake


Too much chocolate cake is the cake I went to when my work was having a baked good sale. We had a co-worker that her husband passed away and so work was kind and did a fund raiser to help raise a little extra money for the family.

This was the most popular cake on the web and so I decided to try it! It did turn out wonderful and very moist. Also, I do not know if you are like me, but there isn’t such a thing as too much chocolate. 



I hope that you enjoy this cake as much as I do, and that if you ever need a cake to help someone out that you go ahead and give this Too Much Chocolate Cake a try. I know that you will be glad that you did.
