I know that there has to be a way to use a yellow or white cake mix (box) to make a chocolate cake. I'm sure that I just need to add some cocoa powder, but does anyone know how much? I'm also not adverse to adding hershey's syrup or baker's chocolate. I just need to know some amounts. icon_biggrin.gif

If you can help with this (or tell me where to find it), I will be in love with you forever!

I prefer using a yellow or butter recipe golden DH brand. I use one box of Jello Brand Devil's Food Instant Pudding. I add 3 heaping TBSP of Hershey's cocoa powder. I have a bad habit of not really going by a recipe or either going over some of the amounts or adding other stuff. So, with that said here is what I have used to make a yellow cake mix into chocolate:

1 box DH Butter Recipe or Yellow
1 package Jellow instant pudding (Devil's Food)
3 heaping TBS cocoa
add a little more milk than what the box directions call for
add about 1/4 cup of sour cream
add 1/4 cup of sugar
2 TBS vanilla flavoring

the rest of the ingredients are according to the box directions.

Hope that helped out some.
