- 1 box Cake Mix (Devil's Food)
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup oil
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 (3 ounce) box cherry instant Jell-o mix
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup ice cold water
- 2 3.4 (3.4 ounce) box chocolate Jell-o instant pudding mix
- 3 cups milk 2% or whole
- 12 Maraschino cherries
Mix cake mix, water, oil, and eggs well. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Pour mix into a greased 9x13 pan and bake according to package directions.
Let cake cool completely - about 1 hour. Using a fork, poke small holes all over the top of the cake.
Boil 1 cup water in a small saucepan and pour into a small bowl. Add cherry Jell-o mix and stir with a whisk until Jell-o is completely dissolved. Add cold water and stir.
Pour cherry Jell-o mixture over the cake. Run a knife around the edges of the cake to loosen it from the sides of the pan.
Refrigerate cake for 2 hours.
While cake is in the refrigerator, mix the chocolate pudding mixes with 3 cups milk (2% or whole). Blend until pudding is completely dissolved. Refrigerate pudding for at least 1 hour.
Frost the cake with the pudding and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Garnish the cake with mini chocolate chips and maraschino cherries just before serving.
