My friend asked me to make her a chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge filling. This looks like a tasty one but I have a question - what do you mean by marshmallow creme...fluff??? Thanks!

Wow....so yummy...this is one of the best receipes I have found on this site yet. I needed it to fill a cake so I added about 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar during the cooling process to make it a little stiffer. I also ran out of choco chips so I had to add a couple of Hersheys bars and it still came out fabulous! This is a keeper!

This was soooo yummy and made the cupcakes super moist. Everyone loves it! It is thick enough not to run off a cake but not thick enough to pipe with. I did over cook the first part (so will have to be careful next time) but I was able to save it when adding hot water and mixing it with a handheld, electric mixer for a short time.

I used this last weekend- and also added powdered sugar like cakebymom2 since it was for a cake filling....came out perfect! Was a little runny, but after about 30 min in fridge- this was perfect, smooth, and super yummy! Thanks!

I loved the taste but found it to be too thin for a cake filling. Reduce the water to 5 tablespoons and it will be perfect for filling or icing. Great taste!
