Death by Chocolate
Let's just say that if you could over-dose on chocolate, this dessert—also known as 'Killer Cake' or 'Punch Bowl Dessert'—might do it.
1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup coffee liqueur
2 (16-ounce) containers whipped topping
2 (6-serving size) packages instant chocolate pudding
8 cups milk
6 (1.4-ounce) butter toffee candy bars
Toasted slivered almonds, crushed
- Bake cake according to package directions for one 13x9x2-inch cake.
- When cake is cool poke holes in the top and pour the coffee liqueur over it. Break up the cake into 1-inch cubes and set aside.
- Mix the pudding mixes with the milk until thick. In a large punch bowl layer 1/2 of the cake cubes, 1/2 of the pudding, 1/2 of the crushed candy bars, and 1/2 of the whipped topping. Repeat layers following the same order.
- Sprinkle top toasted almonds and any additional crushed butter toffee candy bars, if desired. Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
Makes 12 to 16 servings.
