We understand that for true chocolate lovers, regular chocolate cake is just not enough. That’s why we created this rich and dreamy dessert with not one, not two, but three chocolate elements all in one heavenly cake. The luscious cake base is infused with melted, semisweet chocolate chips and baked to perfection before being topped with a silky-smooth chocolate glaze. A white chocolate drizzle decorates the luxurious cake for a triple-chocolate treat that simply tastes like a dream.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Top this pretty cake with white chocolate curls for a finishing touch. Make the curls by pulling a vegetable peeler toward you across a white baking bar. Press firmly, using long, thin strokes.
  • tip 2
    To add a little pizzazz, after drizzling with the glaze, pull a knife through the chocolate to make swirls.
  • tip 3
    Make sure you melt the white baking chips for glaze over low heat. The chips can scorch or burn easily.
  • tip 4
    For a milder chocolate flavor, you can try experimenting with milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet in the cake base and chocolate glaze.
