CAKE:

1 devils food cake mix
1 small package instant chocolate pudding

1/3 C oil
1 1/2 C water
1 t vanilla
1/3 C sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 C semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 C milk chocolate chips 
             ***Note: Use regular sized chocolate chips here. The large ones will make a big mess!***

HOMEMADE HOT FUDGE:

2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T cornstarch
1 C sugar
1   12 oz can evaporated milk
2 T butter
1 t vanilla
dash of salt

1. In a large mixing bowl, or in your stand mixer add the cake mix, pudding and 1/3 C flour. Stir it all around to combine.

2. Add all other cake ingredients (but the chocolate chips). Mix on low for about 1 minute. Then mix on medium speed until the batter is nice and smooth. This should take about 2 minutes. 
3. Spray a bundt pan generously with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan.
4. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the cake batter.
5. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. (For convection ovens bake at 325 for 40 minutes)

2. Pour your can of milk over the top of the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla, pinch of salt and only 1 T of the butter.

***NOTE: If you would like to freeze this cake, please do. This cake and the freezer are good pals. Just remember NOT to pour the hot fudge on until you are ready to serve it. When you are ready to eat this lovely confection heat the cake up in the microwave. Heat the Hot Fudge up as well and pour it over the top of the cake. You will be all set.***
Enjoy!
