Death by Chocolate

No recipe image available.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.

Recipe Ingredients:

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

Cooking Directions:

  1. Bake cake according to package directions for one 13x9x2-inch cake.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
