Well, one of my favs..
I had to have this one for my birthday today.
Mom's Chocolate Layer Cake
favorite chocolate cake (I like Devil's Food)
1small tub Cool Whip
2 bars Baker's unsweetened German chocolate
3/4 cup margarine
Bake cake according to recipe, cool, and cut so you have 4 layers.
Melt 1 1/2 bars of chocolate with margarine over low heat in a small saucepan. Let cool in the fridge until spreadable, not too runny but not thick.
Start layering your cake.. bottom layer gets a coating of chocolate, then a layer of cake. Cool whip goes on top, then another layer of cake. Chocolate comes next, then the last layer of cake. Top it off with Cool Whip and some shavings from the remaining half of the chocolate bar. Let it set up in the fridge before serving.
This is also good for breakfast. ;)
