Midnight Snack

Around 10pm Chad and I got a little snacky. So we decided to make a cake :) This is our absolute favorite chocolate cake. We had it for my birthday just days ago and it obviously didn't last us too long. Of course we watched The Biggest Loser while eating our ridiculously large pieces of cake. No, we are not actively trying to become contestants. If you're looking for a midnight snack Patrick, our house is the place to be!

Chad barked at Rukia, scaring our poor little sensitive girl. She of course jumped into our laps so we could protect her from... us.

Mohawk girl. Yes, I have turned into that person that talks about her animals ALL the time. But come on, she's so stinkin' cute!

Someone's very excited about the cake!

Just in case you want to indulge in your own midnight cake:

1 cake mix
1 pkg instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
as many chocolate chips as you want to chop up!

Mix it all together and throw it all into 2 round cake pans and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes

For the ganache pile as many chocolate chips as you can into a tub of cool whip (between the cake and the ganache I usually use a whole bag). Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring well in between. 1 1/2 - 2 minutes usually does the trick. Stir well and cool in the fridge until your cake is ready for you. Spread some of your ganache in between the layers and let it drip all down the sides of your masterpiece. Share with friends or keep all to yourself, we will be doing the later :)

Hope you all had a fantastic night!
