Chocolate Bliss Cake or Chocolate x6

Ahh, chocolate bliss...this conjures up imagines of chocolate clouds raining chocolate drops falling into a chocolate river...dreamy. Oh sorry, I went to my happy place.
Now chocolate bliss some say is overload. I say there is no such thing. Chocolate x 6. Now who doesn't want this? Especially during certain times, am I right ladies?

IF you do not have a sweet tooth, are not obsessed with chocolate or don't eat dessert first, you might want to forego this one. NO WAIT, make it anyway and just have one piece. You won't regret it. Your hips might but hey you only live once, right? No, you don't want this one often but when you do have it, oh boy!

Chocolate Bliss or Chocolate x 6

2 cups flour
1 2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 box 4 serving size chocolate fudge instant pudding mix OR devils food cake flavor
Stir these well in  a large bowl.

3/4 cup chocolate milk
1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream

Mix your wet ingredients and incorporate into your dry. This will be very thick.

Next
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
stir these into the mix.

Now grease a bundt pan generously and scoop the mixture into the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. If you have a dark nonstick pan you want to bake at 325 for 55-65 minutes.

Let this cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto a plan and let cool completely, about 2 hours.

Once it is cool, make your ganache glaze.
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 up whipping cream
Simmer these items in a sauce pan on low for 5 minutes. Drizzle over the cake

Use the remaining chips from the 2 bags along with 5 mini size snickers or milky way bars sliced, place on top of the cake.

Once it is cool, pour the ganache glaze on top and sprinkle the chips and candy bar pieces over it.

Enjoy!
