Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake

When I woke up the morning I was thinking today would be a good day the bake a chocolate cake. Will to tell you the truth any day is a good day for chocolate cake! I have always wanted to try the cake recipe off the back of the canister of Hershey’s cocoa powder. I am glad that I did. This cake is super moist and the frosting is so creamy and chocolaty. I will defiantly be making this cake again!

Ohhh, this cake sure is good. My aunt made it and I got the recipe from her. I have made it several times because it is sooo good. Thanks for reminding me of it. I think it is time to whip up a chocolate cake soon!

I have always wanted to try this recipe too. I'm really impressed with yours, it looks just like Hersheys! Would it be a tad bit inappropriate to lick the screen?
