Chocolate Mousse Cake
I LOVE chocolate mousse! I wanted to make a cake version out of it because it's pretty awesome, so I found this super easy recipe. I can't take all the credit--it is store bought cake, and very simple instructions, but it was easy and quick and had a really great flavor.

-1 package chocolate cake mix
-1 can sweetened condensed milk
-2 (1 oz.) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
-1/2 c. cold water
-1 package (3.9 oz.) instant chocolate pudding mix
-1 c. heavy cream, whipped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions for two 9-inch layers. Cool and remove from pans.
2. In a large bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate. Gradually stir in water, then instant pudding. Mix until smooth.
Chill for at least 30 minutes.
3. Remove the chocolate mixture from refrigerator and stir to loosen. Beat whipped cream until fluffy (if haven't already) and then fold into chocolate mixture.
Return to the refrigerator for at least another hour.
4. Place one layer of cake onto a serving plate.
Top with 1 1/2 c. of the mousse, then cover with the second cake layer. Frost with remaining mousse and refrigerate until serving. Garnish with fresh fruit & chocolate shavings, if desired.
