I also use a recipe from a Hershey's container....... the "Black Magic Cake". It is super moist and yummy. Even if I accidentally overbake it......still perfectly moist and wonderful. Everyone loves it and friends/family make up excuses to request it. I even had a girlfriend who prides herself on her cooking and baking sheepishly tell me one day.....your chocolate cake is better than mine! icon_smile.gif
So easy too.....I hardly feel like I can take credit. Give it a try.

Putting them in the freezer until you need them will help keep them moist.

I agree about the cake on the back of the Hershey's box. I think the boiling water and oil makes it soooo moist. I have been making it for over 20 years now and never had a complain, but ALWAYS compliments! It freezes perfectly too!
