Swiss Chocolate Cake

This is a Jean Otto specialty and she might kill me for putting this recipe on my blog, but it's too delicious not to share.  I have made it a few times and received rave reviews from my family.  They requested I now bring it to every family holiday!!  This weekend my parents came up to celebrate an early Father's Day and it made for a great refreshing dessert.  Don't get me is very sweet, but the cool icing makes it appropriate for summer time.

Rachel - I have a big chunk with your name on it...bring your skim milk on over this week!!

Cake Ingredients:
1 box Duncan Hines Swiss chocolate cake mix (this is hard to find...I substituted with Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge cake mix and it was fine -- just don't use Devil's food cake mix)
1 sm. box instant vanilla pudding
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. vegetable oil

Mix above ingredients together.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 min.  Use 3 pans (8").

Icing Ingredients:
8 ox. cream cheese
1 c. confection sugar
1 c. regular sugar
12 oz. cool whip

Cream above ingredients with mixer until smooth.  Once smooth add in the following:
1/2 c. chopped pecans
2 chopped Hersey bars

Ice and serve.  Thank you Jean for the most delicious cake recipe!!!

 My mom got my dad a portrait of Ethel for Father's day -- how much does it look like her twin.  One of her friend's daughter's did it and they are very reasonable if you are interested.
