Darker than Midnight Chocolate Cake


This is a cake that is rich and decadent.  It uses a cake mix, but I tweaked it a bit.  It makes 12 servings, but it is so rich you could stretch it to 16 or 24.


1 Duncan Hines Devils Food cake mix

semisweet chocolate chips, I used half of a large bag

Vanilla extract, about 1 tsp.

Prepare cake mix as directed on box.  Add chips and vanilla.  Bake according to directions on box.  Let cool for 15 minutes before frosting.
