1 package devil's food cake mix

1 package chocolate instant pudding mix

2 cups sour cream

1 cup butter, softened

5 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups Belgian Chocolate, Milk, finely chopped

In large mixing bowl beat together devil's food cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, sour cream, butter, eggs and vanilla at low speed, about 30 seconds or just until moistened, then beat at medium speed for about 2 minutes.

Stir in Belgian Chocolate pieces, pour batter evenly into non stick bundt pan or 2 greased and floured 9-inch square cake pans.

Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack.



Ganache
1 1/4 cups whipping cream

3 tablespoons (packed) dark brown sugar

1 1/4 cup Belgian Chocolate, Dark, chopped



Simmer whipping cream and sugar in medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add chocolate and whisk until smooth.

Chill until just spreadable, about 6 hours.

Spread on your Cake when ready.
If you use the two cake pans:
Invert one cake bottom side up onto platter. Spread flat side with ganache covering sides. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almond roca pieces or toffee crunch pieces. Place other cake bottom side down on top of already ganache topped bottom. Spread with remaining ganache covering all sides. Spread ganache evenly smoothing cake.


Optional English Toffee Toppings
Sliced Almonds

Almond Roca, crumbled

Toffee Crunch pieces, crumbled

For those that want that extra special touch for Holiday Recipes or just for fun make some fantastic chocolate bark.


For Belgian Chocolate Bark:
Line baking sheet with foil. Melt 3 ounces of each White and Milk Belgian Chocolate in small bowls. Set each bowl over saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth. Remove from over water. Drizzle all but 1 tablespoon of each of the chocolates over foil in thick (about 1-inch-wide) zigzag lines crossing over each types of chocolate (chocolate will pool in spots). Sprinkle remaining almond roca or toffee crunch or almond roca pieces over chocolate, chill chocolate bark until firm, about 1 hour.


Peel foil off chocolate bark; break into pieces. Press edges into ganache on cake. Remelt the reserved 1 tablespoon of each of the White and Milk Belgian Chocolate over simmering water, stirring often. Using spoon, drizzle chocolate over cake and bark. Chill up to 4 hours. Serve cold or at room temperature.

This is one really decadent Chocolate Coffee Cake, Enjoy!
