1 Box Chocolate fudge cake mix
Ingredients on the box: eggs, water, vegetable oil
For the topping:
1 pkg Oreo cookies (14.3 oz)
1 Jar Hot fudge sauce (12.8oz)
1 box Hersey’s Dark Chocolate instant pudding mix (3.4 oz)
*optional see below 1¾ C Milk *optional, see below
For the dirt 1 box Hersey’s Dark Chocolate instant pudding mix (3.4 oz)
1¾ C Milk
1 container Cool Whip
Additional hot fudge sauce for drizzling Additional crushed Oreos for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Combine cake mix according the instructions on the box, adding eggs, oil and water. Beat on medium speed until well combined. Bake the cake in 9×13” pan for 22-28 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, you cake is done. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
For the topping:
While the cake is still warm, take the end of a wooden spoon or another round object and poke holes all over the top of your cake. Heat the jar of hot fudge sauce in the microwave for about 30 seconds until you can stir it and thin it out. You may need an additional 30 seconds. Pour the entire jar of hot fudge sauce (minus 3 tablespoons) on the top of cake and allow it to absorb in the cake until cake is cooled.
When the cake has cooled, prepare the pudding layer by mixing a package of instant dark chocolate pudding with 1¾ cups of cold milk. Before the pudding sets, pour it over the top of the cake and put the cake in the fridge to let the pudding set, about 15 minutes.
For the dirt:
Prepare the pudding layer by mixing a package of instant dark chocolate pudding with cold milk. Refrigerate until the pudding has set. Take a large Ziploc bag and crush the ¾ of the bag of Oreos into smaller pieces using a rolling pin or other large, heavy object. Once the pudding has set, mix in a container of Cool Whip until well blended. Mix in crushed Oreos into the mousse and spread the dirt over the top of cake. You can top you cake with the remaining hot fudge and some leftover Oreos. Serve cold.
Notes Optional: Add a layer of chocolate pudding over the hot fudge to soak into the cake
