Texas Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake

12:22 AM

Texas Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake is a chocolate fudge cake mix and fudge brownie mix that comes together to make the most scrumptious chocolate cake you will ever eat.  The chocolate ganache icing sends the chocolate love over the top.  


Don't wait to make this cake.  The Texas Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake brings back so many memories of my mother's chocolate cake growing up. 

 

The Texas Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake has a rich, and I mean rich chocolate presence in the cake from the two mixes, chocolate fudge cake mix, and chocolate fudge brownie mix.  The cake is dense while tender and moist yet smooth.  


There are only five ingredients in the recipe, meaning do not add the ingredients on the back of the mix boxes.  


I used Hershey Milk Chocolate Frosting and microwaved it for 30 seconds to make an almost homemade ganache.  


If you prefer, you can make the chocolate ganache using chocolate chips and heavy cream.
