Cooking instruction summary:

Ever since my brother started using the phrase "I wanna get chocolate wasted" from the movie Grown Ups, I've beenwanting to makethis cake for his birthday. Being a chocoholic myself, I had no trouble coming up with ways to fill this cake with layer upon layer of chocolatey goodness. Just looking at this cake, I think you'll agree that it definitely deserves its name.

To create this chocolate beauty, I baked two layers of delicious chocolate cake.Then, I drizzled each cakelayer with someKahlua. Iwanted to use chocolateliqueur like Godiva dark chocolate or white chocolate, but all I had on hand was Kahlua, which is acoffee-flavored liqueurand Disaronno, which is an almond-flavored liqueur. Either one would've worked well with the chocolate butsince my brother also loves coffee, I decided togo with theKahlua. Then, I filled and frosted the cake with rich chocolate buttercream.

Then, I completely covered the sides of the cake with Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. The trick to doing this is to take a handful of chocolate chips and gently press themonto the cake. I placed the cake on a revolving cake stand and I had a large shallow bowl underneath it to catch any chocolate chips that may fall.

Next, Itopped the cake with anassortment of chocolate candies. For this cake, I used Hershey Kisses, Hershey bars, Kit Kat bars, Twix bars and Whoppers. With so many candy choices of out there, I'm sure I can make this cake dozens of times and have a differentbatch of candies to top the cake every time.

Last, I drizzled some melted chocolate all over thecake. I crisscrossed the melted chocolate on top and then poured more around the edges of the cake. Think Jackson Pollock.I made sure there was plenty of melted chocolate dripping down the sides of the cake. I think it makes it look even more decadent and mouthwatering.

I hope this cake inspires you to create your own chocolate wasted cake. What I love about this cake is it'sabsolutely over-the-topwith chocolateand yet it's pretty easy to make, even for a novice baker. It's the kind of cake you just wanna dive into and devour. You can use your own chocolate cake recipe and top it with all the chocolate candy your heart desires. And with Halloween just around the corner, I'm sure they'll be plenty of chocolatecandyaround to make this cake:-)

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips*

frosting:

4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

1 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature

1/3-1/2 cup whole milk (start out with 1/3 cup of milk and add more milk to your desired consistency)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

liqueur for drizzling on the cake layers (i.e. chocolate, coffee or almond)

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips*

1/2-3/4 cup heavy cream or 1/4 cup vegetable oil

semi-sweet, bittersweet or dark chocolate chips for the sides of the cake

assorted chocolate candies for the top of the cake*

To make the cake:

(Note: Instead of milk, you can replace it with water or cooled brewed

coffee. Instead of butter, you can use vegetable oil. Instead of honey,

you can use corn syrup or agave nectar. Instead of semi-sweet chocolate

chips, you can use Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips. For allergen-free

alternatives for the candies, you can try Enjoy Life chocolate chips,

bars or cookies)

Preheat oven to 325 350 F degrees. Grease and dust two to three8-inch or 9-inch cake pans with flour. To prevent the cake from sticking to the pan, line the bottom with a parchment paper circle. Set aside.

Sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, combine milk, butter, honey and vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the milk/butter mixture. Mix until combined. Fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Pour in the batter into prepared cake pans. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and wait for about 10 minutes to remove from cake pans and place on a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before decorating.

To make the frosting:

Note: instead of butter, you can use any allowed margarine, Spectrum organic vegetable shortening, or coconut oil. Instead of milk, you can use rice milk or soy milk.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add the butter, milk and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, slowly mix together at a low speed. Once all the ingredients are combined, increase the speed and beat till fluffy.

To assemble the cake:

Placethe firstcake layer on a plate or cake circle. Lightly drizzle with liqueur. Spread an even layer of frosting. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosting. Lightly drizzle with liqueur. Cover the sides and top of the cake with frosting. Cover the sides of the cake with semi-sweet chocolate chips and cover the top with assorted chocolate candies.
