This may seem like a really dumb question, but can anyone tell me if this mix actually tastes like dark chocolate? I'd like to make Cakepro's amazing chocolate wasc cake...I've made it with another chocolate mix, but it just wasn't chocolate-y enough icon_smile.gif Does this mix just make it more intense and fudgier, or does it scream dark chocolate (the family isn't a fan of dark chocolate) Thanks so much!
P.S. Any thoughts on their Swiss Chocolate?

I have used this in the past when I baked from box mixes and it does make a good chocolate cake. I will say it is way better than the BC chocolate mixes. It is very chocolatey and fudgey without being bitter. I have actually replaced the water in the recipe with strongly brewed coffee and that really deepens the chocolate flavor. But with all the sugar in the box mix, plus whatever you add in, it won't be bitter.

This is the only chocolate cake mix that I use. Everyone loves it - and I have never received a complaint.

I have to agree. This is the only chocolate cake mix that I use. I have everyone that orders chocolate cake from me rave about it. The one thing that I do do is with the water, the last 1/3 cup that it asks for I add 1 tbsp of instant coffee to it. It makes the chocolate flavor pop even more.

I also agree it is the only chocolate cake I use. I have added cocoa to mixed but it is much better to use the dark chocolate mix.

It is my go-to chocolate mix too. Sometimes I have a hard time finding it and have to resort to Devil's Food mix and it makes me sad because I know it isn't anywhere as good as the chocolate fudge mix!
