CHOCOLATE SHEET CAKE- A CROWD PLEASER

I baked this cake for a meeting tonight and, I noticed that the nine people around the table ate every bite!  This is a QUICK cake to bake and I hope you enjoy it!  


CHOCOLATE SHEET CAKE WITH NANNY'S FUDGE ICING 


1 box chocolate cake mix (make according to package directions)
1 can sweetened condensed milk.


Make the cake according to package directions.  Once it is baked, poke holes in the cake, with the end of a wooden spoon. Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake and, spread evenly with a spatula. Source: My dear friend Aimee Parkinson (Memphis, TN) gave me this idea many years ago. 
NANNY'S FUDGE ICING 


1 stick butter
1/2 cup cocoa
1 box powdered sugar  (or, 1/2 a large bag) 
1/4 cup milk  (can add add extra 3 T., as needed, to make icing spreadable)
1 t. vanilla


Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add the cocoa and stir until the cocoa is dissolved.  Turn off the heat.  Add the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.  Stir all together. * In order to make the icing smooth, put back on low heat and, stir until the icing is a spreadable consistency.  Pour over the warm cake.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. 


FLAIR TIP:  This cake would make an EXCELLENT birthday cake!  
ENJOY!  Let me know if you like it!!!


ALL THE BEST TO YOU!

Hi Beth!
Looks SO good! You can also substitute Jello (cherry works great) while it's liquid. Pour over tiny holes all over cake. Refrigerate for Jello to set. Then top with a chocolate icing (I sometimes use chocolate mousse). It's fantastic for a hot summer party! :)
