“Recipe from Hershey's Kitchen. This cake is a family favorite and one of the best i have come by. Its a little different with the cup of boiling water but the ending result is phenomenal. Not to mention the frosting, not only does it go perfect with the cake; it is to die for. I make it every time i need to ice any of my desserts with chocolate. Hope you love it as much as i do.”
