Prepare a chocolate cake mix; bake it in an 9 x 13 inch pan lined with parchment paper for easy removal from pan for presentation; freeze it until partially frozen. Using a piece of plain dental floss, slice the cake from the top end of the cake; remove the top layer; slice a half gallon (square box) of vanilla cream; place slices on the cake, place top layer on the cake and re-freeze it.


Use the following Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe:

Hot Fudge Sauce


  • 4 (1 oz) semi-sweet chocolate squares
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Water
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


In heavy sauce pan over medium heat, melt chocolate squares, butter, sweetened condensed milk and water. Cook and stir constantly until thickened about 5 minutes. Add vanilla extract. Serve over ice cream, brownies or hot fudge cake. This sauce can be used as a fruit dipping sauce, and fondue sauce. This recipe can be adapted in the microwave.

Remove cake from freezer and invert it on a platter. Heat the Hot Fudge Sauce and drizzle over the top of the cake; garnish with cherries, strawberries, whipped cream.

The cake could be prepared ahead of time and stored in the freezer. The Hot Fudge Sauce can also be stored in the refrigerator and heated in the microwave.
