    Subject: REQ: death by chocolate
    A friend and I got into a discussion about death by chocolate. I said
    there are so many different recipes for this.
    So, could some kind folks post some recipes that I can pass on?

    Here are 2 that I have and I know there are more. Hope these help prove
    your point.

    Death by Chocolate Cake

    1 package of chocolate cake mix (or a devils food mix)
    1 six pack of Skor bars or heath bars, frozen
    1 big tub of cool whip
    2 packs of chocolate mousse (I use Jell-O's chocolate silk)

    Put Skor/heath bars in freezer. Make mousse. Chill for 1 hour (or
    follow the directions). Bake cake. Let cool. Make sure cool whip is
    thawed. Crush Skor bars in a Ziploc bag. Then, once your ingredients are
    ready, you can begin putting it together: line the bottom of a
    transparent bowl with the chocolate cake. Next, line with chocolate
    mousse. Next, line with cool whip. Next, line with most of the crushed
    Skor bars. Then, start all over again, with the exception of just
    sprinkling the Skor bars on top to make it look decorative! and
    wall-la! That is your death by chocolate.

    Deadly Chocolate Cake

    Note: This cake is extremely chocolatey and you might want
    to serve it with whipped or ice cream to cut the flavor.

    1 devil's food cake mix
    4 large eggs
    3/4 cup oil
    1 cup milk
    1 can whipped vanilla frosting

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees or 325 degrees for a glass or dark
    metal pan. Grease a 9x 13 pan. Mix the cake mix, eggs, oil, and milk
    with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds on low. Increase the speed to
    medium and mix for 2 minutes. Hand stir in canned frosting. Bake for 45
    minutes to an hour.

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    2/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
    1 teaspoon salt
    3 cups powdered sugar
    1/3 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Before cake is done, melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in
    cocoa and salt. Add powdered sugar alternately with milk. With hand
    mixer, mix until spreading consistency is reached. Stir in vanilla.
    Spread frosting on warm cake. Serve cool (if possible).
