Death by Chocolate Cake

This is a very dense, rich cake, not to be taken lightly. You could call it the king of chocolate cakes. It is the best served while it is still a little bit warm.

1 Duncan Hines Devil's Food cake mix
1 3.9 oz. package instant chocolate pudding
1 cup melted butter
2 cups (1 16 oz. container) sour cream
5 eggs
1 tea vanilla
1 bag mini chocolate chips
Combine all ingredients except chips and mix for 1 min. on low, and 2 min. on medium. Then fold in mini chips (optional: save about 1/8 cup to sprinkle on the top). Bake in a well greased bundt pan at 350 for 60 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup + 1 TB granulated sugar
3/4 cup + 1 TB semi sweet chocolate chips.

Combine butter, milk and sugar over medium heat and cook for 4 or 5 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in chocolate chips gradually until it is smooth. Immediately pour over cake. Garnish with reserved mini chips or shaved chocolate.

*A few notes: This is very thick batter, I don't suggest trying to mix by hand. Also, don't try to cut the fat out of this cake, it will ruin it. If you are looking for a lower calorie cake, pick another recipe.
