  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • 15x10x2 Sheet Pan
  • Large Bowl
  • Medium Mixing Bowl (2)
  • Grater


  • 18.25 ounces Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Mix 1 box
  • 1 cup water
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups milk divided
  • 3.9 ounces Instant French Vanilla Pudding mix 1 box
  • 3.9 ounces instant chocolate pudding mix 1 box
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip Whipped Topping thawed
  • 2.6 ounces King Size Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar 1


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease a 10 x 15 x 1 inch cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 
  • In a large bowl, beat together cake mix, water, oil and eggs until combined.  Pour cake batter into prepared cookie sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  • Let cool completely. 
  • In a medium sized bowl mix 2 cups milk with French vanilla pudding and whisk for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In another medium sized bowl mix 2 cups milk with the chocolate pudding and whisk for 2 minutes.
  • Combine prepared vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding in one large mixing bowl and spread on top of the cake. 
  • Carefully spread Cool Whip on top of the pudding. 
  • Use a grater or vegetable peeler to shave off pieces of the chocolate bar and sprinkle over the top of the cake.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.


  • We recommend refrigerating this cake and keeping it in a container, or tightly wrapped up with saran wrap or foil, for the best results. It will be good in the fridge for about 3 days, but recommended you eat the day of making it.
