Chocolate Pudding Dump Cake

So, my son? He had his first date a couple of weeks ago.

I will do my very best not to embarrass him here, because his cute little girlfriend might read this blog. All I will say is this: I cried harder after dropping him off at his date than I did on his first day of kindergarten.

I’m talking a full on ugly cry, you guys. It was ridiculous.

So, after the tears stopped, I obviously needed chocolate.

This ridiculous concoction worked miraculously. It’s one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make and it’s absolutely loaded with chocolate. And just look at how fudgy it is! I die.

I know it’s the holiday season and we’re all in cookie mode, but take a 2 minute break to mix this up and pop it in the oven as a treat for your family. It’s perfect for busy days, because you just dump and bake.

    Made this and it was wonderful, but I mixed it with a hand mixer which didn’t seem strong enough to do the job — was really wheezing by the end. Also had the puff-up around the edges and sinking in the middle (I guess from the weight of the choc chips, except I went heavy on the chips around the edge the next time, and still happened.) Then tried an alternative: spice cake mix, butterscotch instant pudding, and butterscotch bits — also excellent and I’m trying peanut butter chips instead of the butterscotch bits next time for an even greater meld of flavors. Thanks for this terrific snack/dessert idea!

    This sounds amazing – but don’t have instant pudding mix, just the kind that has to be cooked. Can I use it?

      I haven’t tried it myself, so I’m not sure how that would work out.

      I have made this with ‘cookable’ pudding. Just prepare the pudding with the 2 C milk just as it says on the box in a large pan. Dump in the dry cake mix and follow the rest of the directions above.

    What a lifesaver! I was called on last minute to bring a dessert to men’s homeless shelter for tonight. I had all ingredients for three cakes. So glad I found this. Thanks!
