1 package chocolate fudge cake mix with pudding 1 package (3.5 ounce size) instant chocolate pudding mix 1 package (3.5 ounce size) cooked chocolate pudding mix, not instant 3/4 cup chocolate chips 1/4 cup chocolate syrup 1/2 cup Kahlua or other coffee-flavored liqueur 1/4 cup warm water 1 can chocolate fudge frosting
Prepare the cooked pudding per package instructions, and put in refrigerator to thoroughly chill.
Heat oven to 325 degrees F, grease and flour 2 round 9" cake pans. Line with wax paper cut to fit inside each pan, and brush with shortening as well.
Combine the instant pudding mix with the cake mix, and mix well with a spoon. Then mix the cake mix per box instructions (add the eggs, oil, water, etc. that the box calls for).
Add the chocolate syrup, water and liqueur, and blend with mixer on medium speed until thoroughly blended. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pans and bake until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean--approximately 45 minutes.
Allow to cool thoroughly. Spread cold cooked pudding between layers. Frost top and sides of cake with the chocolate fudge frosting.
If you live in high altitude, set oven at about 350 F, and increase warm water by 2 tbsp.
You HAVE to be a chocoholic to eat very much of this. I had a tiny piece and it was so incredible but so chocolately and rich. Serve it in VERY tiny pieces.

This is a serious chocolate cake! Incredible! You can't eat much though so I'd say this serves even more than 16 people.

My brother requested a chocolate suicide cake for his birthday and I found this recipe. I was afraid I would mess it up, but it was easy and absolutely delicious!! I definitely recommend this recipe and I definitely will be making it again!!! I found out that two tiny bottles of Kahlua equal the required 1/2 cup!! You don't have to buy a big bottle.
