Willy Wonka River of Chocolate Cake

If you've seen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory then you remember the river of chocolate that poor Augustus got swept away in...thank goodness for the Oompa Loompas who rescued him.

I  made this most chocolaty cake for a bake-off at work:

Cake Ingredients:
1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
1 box of of Chocolate Pudding Mix (3.9 oz box)
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup of water
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Icing Ingredients:
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 Tablespoons of melted butter

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2) Butter and flour (do a good job of this) a non-stick bundt pan
3) Mix together all the cake ingredients (except the chips) and mix well
4) Add the chocolate chips
5) Pour into the bundt pan
6) Bake 40-50 minutes (it will still look a little underdone - mine was closer to 50 minutes)
7) Let cool in the pan about 15 -30 minutes
8) Invert cake and let cool completely
9) Melt butter in the microwave and then stir in the cup of chocolate chips and mix until creamy. You may need to microwave a few more seconds
10) Pour over cake and let cool

We'll see if I win the First Place Prize tomorrow!
